Minimally Invasive Surgeries Q&A

What is minimally invasive surgery?

Minimally invasive surgery uses small incisions and specially designed instruments so Dr. Rastegar can see inside your body to evaluate medical conditions and perform surgical procedures. In gynecology, many types of minimally invasive procedures can be performed through the vaginal opening, eliminating the need for external incisions and visible scars.

What are the benefits of minimally invasive surgery?

Because they use small incisions, minimally invasive surgical techniques are associated with a decreased risk of complications, less pain and faster healing and recovery compared to traditional techniques that rely on larger incisions. Plus, because minimally invasive techniques can usually be performed without general anesthesia, anesthesia-related risks are also eliminated.

What types of minimally invasive procedures does Dr. Rastegar offer?

Dr. Rastegar offers several types of minimally invasive surgeries to help patients with a wide array of medical issues and concerns. Some of the most common include:

  • hysteroscopy – a procedure that uses a special instrument called a hysteroscope to see inside your uterus so Dr. Rastegar and diagnose and treat medical issues affecting the uterus and fallopian tubes, including problems that affect fertility

  • hysterectomy – removal of the uterus

  • tubal ligation – a contraceptive procedure that;s considered permanent and that closes off the fallopian tubes so eggs cannot be fertilized

  • fibroid removal – removal of fibrous masses of muscle tissue that grow inside the uterus

  • treatment for ectopic pregnancy, or pregnancy that occurs outside the uterus

Can a hysterectomy be performed using minimally invasive techniques?

Yes, hysterectomy can be performed using minimally invasive techniques. In some cases, such as when the uterus is very large or when Dr. Rastegar wants to examine the area around the uterus, a traditional open technique may be the better method. Dr. Rastegar will discuss the option that's right for you following your exam and evaluation.
