Forget the Scars: Strategic Placement of Laparoscopic Incisions Improves Recovery

Blog
WTOP

In minimally invasive GYN surgery, laparoscopic incision placement and size play a significant role in patient recovery time. Choosing the best incision locations for recovery also happen to be the most cosmetically appealing. Strategic placement of tiny incisions through the midline of the abdomen bypass the lateral abdominal muscles completely, allowing for a safer surgery and faster recovery from hysterectomy or myomectomy procedures with minimal pain.

When incisions and instruments have to pass deep within the abdominal muscles they are less safe and take a long time to heal. Conventional laparoscopic and robotic laparoscopic procedures use incision placement that has a higher likelihood of lacerating blood vessels and damaging nerves, but at minimum, they go through musculature that takes much longer to heal, and has a higher level of pain during the recovery.

STRATEGIC INCISION PLACEMENT LEAVES NO VISIBLE TRACE

Reduction in incision size is balanced with high-definition laparoscopes that provide minimally invasive GYN surgeons with a clear view into the body. All GYN conditions can be treated this way, though the specialist has to be fellowship trained in additional specialized techniques to ensure proper control of blood loss.

“Many of the women who have had this type of surgery came to us with the belief that they wouldn’t be a candidate for laparoscopic or non-robotic surgery because they thought their condition was too severe,” said Natalya Danilyants, M.D. “When they discover that minimally invasive surgery with an exceptional recovery is possible, and incisions that are practically non-existent after a couple of months, their lives are changed. That’s why this type of surgery is so important for women.”
