Minimally Invasive Surgery

Every woman is different and has different demands placed on her. The physicians at Holy Family Memorial pride themselves on working with patients to determine the best treatment path based on individual preferences and needs. And if that includes surgery, HFM offers laparoscopic options to traditional surgeries—minimally invasive procedures that will help you quickly return to your work and everyday life.

Benefits of Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopic surgery is a surgery that uses series of small incisions to insert a tiny camera and surgical instruments to accomplish the same results as a traditional “open” surgery, without the pain and discomfort. Some of the major benefits of minimally invasive surgery include:

  • Outpatient procedure
  • Shorter recovery time
  • Reduced post-operative pain

  • Heavy periods
  • Endometriosis
  • Pelvic pain
