Minimally Invasive GYN Surgery

minimally invasive surgeryAccording to Dr. Unterseher, laparoscopic gynecologic surgery is a major advancement in the management of certain gynecologic problems. The use of a thin fiber optic laparoscope with its tiny camera has made minimally invasive surgery a much more viable option for many more women.

How does laparoscopic gynecologic surgery work?

The laparoscope is inserted through a small incision, usually in the navel, allowing Dr. Unterseher to view images of the affected area on a monitor and then work on the problem area using tiny surgical tools.

This technique allows Dr. Unterseher to quickly and easily remove tumors, inspect damaged organs, or collect tissue samples to be used for further review.

Dr. Unterseher at Esplanade Women’s Care offers women in the Chico, California area access to this minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery, giving him the ability to handle all types of gynecologic issues in a way that will result in less scarring and pain, and a much shorter recovery time.
