Gynecologic Health

Premier Health providers answer frequently asked questions about prevention and wellness for women.

How do you decide if a patient is treated laparoscopically or robotically?

The choice of minimally invasive gynecologic procedure may depend on the condition that requires treatment, according to the American College of Surgeons.

Hysterectomies for the treatment of gynecologic disease is a common minimally invasive gynecologic procedure, according to the Journal of the American Medical Association. These procedures, as well as some other gynecologic surgeries, can be done laparoscopically, which allow for a two-dimensional view, according to JAMA. Robotic surgery allows greater visibility and precision, and is chosen when those factors are seen as benefits in a given procedure, according to JAMA.

For more information about choosing laparoscopic or robotic surgery, talk to your doctor.
