Minimally invasive gyn surgery at HFM Women's Health

Have you been experiencing heavy bleeding or pelvic pain...
been told you have fibroids, endometriosis or need a hysterectomy?

Every woman is different and has different demands placed on them whether at the workplace or at home. The physicians of HFM Women's Health pride themselves on working with you to determine the best procedure for you. In today's economy, many patients prefer the least invasive surgery available with the quickest return to work and everyday life.

This surgical procedure has many benefits compared to traditional procedures, including the small incision. With the laparoscopic or belly button surgery, the surgeon enters through the belly button and two additional small ‘key holes.’

Through this technique, patients can expect:

  • Outpatient procedure
  • Less blood loss
  • Shorter recovery time (typical return to activities of daily living in 3-4 days & return to work in 14 days or less in most cases)
  • Reduced pain
  • Preoperative pelvic support
  • Maintain preoperative vaginal dimensions

Common conditions which may be treated by this newer approach include:

  • heavy periods
  • endometriosis
  • pelvic pain
  • fibroid tumors
  • incontinence
  • pelvic organ prolapse/relaxation
  • ovarian masses/cysts
  • and an alternative to a hysterectomy
The laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy is one of the latest advancements in the treatment of a number of gynecological disorders. A typical laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy is performed in under two hours and oftentimes in as little as one hour. Patients normally are discharged home the night of surgery, however some patients will require an overnight stay with discharge the next morning.

Advances in computing and laparoscopic surgical instrumentation have given this minimally invasive surgery new opportunity for a broad range of patients; however, it may not be suitable for every surgical candidate.
