New Minimally Invasive Options for Gynecologic Surgery at North Shore Medical Center NSMC
This is the biggest change I've seen in my practice in 20 years its what I am most excited about since I've come out of residency a patient may come and see me because she's got heavy bleeding and she was found to have a fibroid uterus as it turns out she's been dealing with this for about three years because her mother had the same thing and she had surgery using a traditional laparotomy big incision she's in the hospital for a week and didn't feel well again for eight weeks what I can now tell this patient is.
Let me bring you to the hospital I can use small incisions you can go home the same day i'll have you driving in three days and you can be back to work in two weeks you know we've been doing this for three years and we still say it's a a great operations really sweet operation because it really allows the patient a comfort level that they wouldn't have otherwise if they had to have a major operation or major incision the procedures would be as follows office tubal sterilization.
Office endometrial ablations for heavy bleeding then transitioning to the hospital we do laproscopic supracervical hysterectomies total laparoscopic hysterectomies we can combine those procedures with removal of the tubes and ovaries as well we can do laparoscopy for pelvic pain and endometriosis laparoscopy for removal the ovaries and tubes if we need to for history of breast cancer or for history of ovarian cycsts an example the recent patient is a patient of mine who had a fibroid uterus and the fibroid itself was the size of a grapefruit 10 centimeters.
She had not only heavy bleeding from this but pelvic pain and we were able to see her get her in to the hospital did a hysterectomy the specimen itself weighed 1.5 pounds she was able to go home the following day and she's back at work as we speak which is two and a half weeks after the procedure this is someone who's been living with pain for three to four years shoot me in the eye and say this is so easy how could I possibly have waited for so long.
