Minimally invasive procedures with smaller incisions and shorter recoveries
A woman may need a gynecologic surgical procedure for a number of different reasons. At Beaumont, we strive to provide the most comprehensive, thorough care - regardless of which surgery you are having.
Smaller incisions, shorter recovery
It used to be that having gynecological surgery meant you set aside months of your life to recover. And in some places, it’s still that way.
But at Beaumont, most women having gynecological surgery are back to enjoying family activities, working and managing their busy lives within weeks.
That’s because Beaumont gynecological surgeons use the most advanced laparoscopic and robotic-assisted minimally invasive surgical techniques, which allow them to perform delicate surgeries like hysterectomies and bladder suspensions with incisions that measure less than an inch. And with surgery this precise, recovery is measured in days – not weeks or months.
Benefits of the minimally invasive and robotic procedures include:
- less pain
- shorter hospital stays
- quicker recovery times
Our surgeons perform nearly 10,000 gynecological surgeries every year – most using minimally invasive techniques. Conditions treated include:
- excessively heavy periods (menorrhagia)
- painful periods (dysmenorrhea)
- uterine fibroids
- dysfunctional uterine bleeding
- chronic pelvic pain
- tubal ligation
- pelvic organ prolapse
- gynecological cancer
