Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery Q & A
What are some common gynecological issues for women?
Over the course of your life, your body undergoes an incredible amount of change from the early stages of puberty, through your reproductive years, and ending with menopause, when your body winds down its reproductive phase. During this time, you may face any number of gynecological issues, including:
- Abnormal or irregular bleeding
- Pelvic pain
- Uterine fibroids
- Problems associated with menopause
Often, the discomfort and hassle that come with these conditions have a serious impact on your quality of life, necessitating medical intervention. If you are experiencing any symptoms associated with these problems, contact our office and schedule an appointment to be evaluated by Dr. Lang.
How are gynecological issues treated?
Dr. Lang treats each gynecological issue progressively, based on your symptoms. He prefers to start with a conservative approach that typically includes lifestyle changes and oral medication. If this approach does not provide relief, Dr. Lang turns to minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, which is used with increasing frequency, and success, in the medical world.
Dr. Lang is highly experienced in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery and offers the following procedures:
- Laparoscopic removal of endometriosis
- Laparoscopic removal of fibroids (myomectomy)
- Laparoscopic removal of ovarian cysts
- Vaginal hysterectomy
- Abdominal hysterectomy
- Diagnostic laparoscopy
- Endometrial ablation
How is minimally invasive gynecologic surgery better than open surgery?
Minimally invasive gynecologic procedures offer many advantages over traditional open surgeries, including:
- Much smaller incisions
- Less blood loss during surgery
- Less pain
- Shorter recovery time
- Shorter hospital stay
In other words, the risk of infection and complications that are often associated with open surgery are greatly reduced in minimally invasive procedures, while the results remain the same.
Using state-of-the-art medical equipment, Dr. Lang successfully targets and treats a number of gynecological issues with minimal damage to your body’s tissues.
