Minimally invasive surgery relies on tiny incisions and highly specialized tools. These include:


Hysteroscopy is a thin telescope that can be inserted through the cervix into the uterus. The hysteroscope includes a video camera and lights allowing the surgeon to guide the work. Some hysteroscopes also include tiny instruments for tissue sample retrieval or fibroid and tumor removal.

Laparoscopic surgery

A laproscope is a small, fiber-optic tube that includes a video camera. It is inserted through a tiny incision, while small surgical instruments are inserted through additional tiny incisions to perform the procedure.

Robotic surgery

The da Vinci® Surgical System offers minimally invasive surgical options that might not be available with standard laparoscopy.
