Traditional surgery can be debilitating and typically requires a long recovery period, but it’s not the only option. If you need to be back up on your feet soon after your procedure, learn more about the minimally invasive surgery options we offer at ObGyne Associates of Libertyville. We provide residents in Libertyville, IL, and the surrounding areas with high-quality medical care.
At ObGyne Associates of Libertyville, we offer multiple options for minimally invasive surgery. Laparoscopy is the most common option, and it involves using a few minute incisions and a very small camera.
The surgical instruments used are slim and long so they can reach the area where surgery is needed without necessitating a large incision. The camera is used to guide surgeons to where they need to operate inside your body.
A da Vinci surgery is very similar to a laparoscopy, but it has a few key differences. Instead of the surgeon relying only on their own body’s power, the da Vinci surgery is robot-assisted. The surgeon operates the robot, which has much more flexibility and a capability for much higher precision than the human body does.
By using robots in our minimally invasive surgeries, we can increase the potential for fast healing even more than with a simple laparoscopy, and the risk is minimal.
If you need surgery or another procedure but you want to make sure the toll it takes on your body is not too great, contact our team. One of our compassionate doctors will talk you through all your options and let you know what the pros and cons are. After you’ve made a decision, we’ll stand by you and help you through it, every step of the way.
