Minimally Invasive Surgical Techniques

Dr. Smollen is committed to offering her patients safer alternatives to normal gynecologic surgeries. These procedures can be needed as a result of Endometriosis, or Benign Gynecological Tumors. Minimally invasive surgical techniques can involve the use of robotic assistance like the da Vinci® Surgical System.

Surgeries that can be done in this way include:

  • Laparoscopic hysterectomy
  • Laparoscopic removal of benign gynecological tumors
  • Treatment of endometriosis

Minimally invasive surgical techniques offer several advantages over their normal counterparts including: faster recovery with less pain, smaller incisions and scars, and shorter hospital stays with decreased risks of infection. If you find yourself in need of a procedure that can be preformed in this way, call and make an appointment to discuss your options!
