Gynecological Surgery by Laparotomy or Laparoscopy and Laser
- Laparoscopy: the procedure implies the introduction of the laparoscope in the abdominal cavity. The laparoscope is a large tube, rigid and with a light. The introduction of the scope inside of the abdominal cavity is through a 1-2cm skin incision just below the umbilicus. The scope is connected to a video camera that allows us to see inside the abdomen and connected as well to a monitor where we see the images. This is a less invasive procedure than a laparatomy and it has a quicker recovery. You can resolve:
- Ovarian pathology: ovarian cyst, ovarian cancer
- Uterine pathology: miomas, endometrial cancer, tubal ligation
- Hysteroscopy: The procedure implies the use of a hysteroscope, rigid tube connected to a light and a camera that goes into the uterus through the vagina and cervix. It allows to see and to treat uterine pathology (miomas, polyps, etc.).
- Laparotomy: it’s open surgery. The abdominal skin incision gives us access to pelvic organs (uterus, ovaries and tubes). Due to the bigger incision, the recovery time is longer than in a laparoscopy. You can treat any pelvic pathology with it.
- Gynecological curettage: the procedure consists in the use of a uterine curettage to get material from the endometrial cavity. It’s useful for the diagnosis and/or treatment of endometrial pathology (polyps, endometrial thickness).
- Lasers in gynecological surgery: Used in medicine for over 30 years, the CO2 laser has become an indispensable tool for the treatment of genital warts and dysplasia of the instrument vulva, vagina and cervix. In laparoscopy, the laser can be used to treat endometriosis or to perform adhesiolysis.
Laser technology also allows for the restructuring and intimate parties surgery allowing medical interventions without hospitalization and with a very short postoperative period.
