Gynecologic Surgery

minimally invasive gynecological surgery

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

Surgeons at Beaumont perform nearly 10,000 gynecological surgeries every year – mostusing minimally invasive techniques. Conditions treated include:

  • excessively heavy periods (menorrhagia)
  • painful periods (dysmenorrhea)
  • uterine fibroids
  • dysfunctional uterine bleeding
  • chronic pelvic pain
  • endometriosis
  • tubal litigation
  • pelvic organ prolapse
  • incontinence
  • gynecological cancer

Laura was tired of being in pain. Though her physician had recommended a hysterectomy, she didn’t want a traditional open surgery. “I wanted to have a minimally invasive surgery because I couldn’t take a lot of time off of work,” she says.
