Minimally Invasive Surgery FAQs
How does minimally invasive surgery differ from open surgery?
Minimally invasive gynecology surgery differs significantly from open surgery in several key ways. Firstly, it involves much smaller incisions, often just a few centimeters long. This leads to less postoperative pain and quicker healing times. Secondly, minimally invasive techniques usually require less time in the hospital and allow for a faster return to normal activities. Additionally, the risk of complications like infection or bleeding is generally lower compared to open surgery. Overall, minimally invasive options offer a more comfortable and convenient surgical experience.
Can minimally invasive procedures be performed as outpatient surgeries?
Yes, many minimally invasive gynecology procedures can be performed on an outpatient basis, meaning you can go home the same day as your surgery. This is due to smaller incisions and less invasive techniques allowing for quicker recovery and fewer complications. However, the nature of the condition being treated, as well as your overall health, can influence whether an overnight hospital stay is recommended. You should always consult with Dr. Giordano for personalized advice on what to expect for your specific procedure.
How long does a typical minimally invasive surgery last?
The duration of a minimally invasive gynecologic procedure can vary widely depending on the condition being treated and the specific surgical technique used. Generally, these surgeries can take anywhere from 30 minutes to a few hours. Dr. Giordano will give you a more accurate time estimate tailored to your specific case.
