Minimally invasive surgery offers the best possible results with a shorter period of recovery and a lower risk for complications. For minimally invasive gynecological procedures, trust Dr. Smith and her staff. Her team is highly skilled and trained to offer high-quality treatment using state-of-the-art technology.

Conventional surgeries can result in longer recovery times and larger incisions. However, Dr. Smith offers multiple forms of minimally invasive surgical options such as laparoscopy and robotic surgery as effective forms of treatment for various conditions.

During your consultation, Dr. Smith will conduct a thorough physical examination and review of your medical history to determine which treatment option is best for your condition.


Laparoscopy uses a slim surgical tool known as a laparoscope that has a small light and telescope attached to the end of it. During the procedure, a small incision is made, and the laparoscope is inserted into the surgical site. The light and telescope on the end of the laparoscope enable Dr. Smith to use smaller surgical instruments to complete the surgery without leaving a large scar. Common conditions treated with laparoscopy include the following:
• Ovarian cyst removal
• Hysterectomy
• Tubal ligation

It can also be used for diagnostic purposes to confirm gynecological conditions.

Robotic Surgery

Robotic surgery is a powerful cutting-edge innovation that allows for greater accuracy and dexterity during surgeries. This technology has been used for decades to treat millions of patients for various conditions.

During this procedure, robotic tools are used to assist in the surgery and are under Dr. Smith’s control at all times. Using robotic-assisted surgery, your procedure has a lower risk of complications, shortened hospital stay, and a chance of faster recovery time. Common surgeries performed using robotic assistance include:
• Sacrocolpopexy
• Myomectomy
• Hysterectomy
• Endometriosis
