Gynecologic Health

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

Who is a candidate for minimally invasive, laparoscopic, and robotic surgery?

Not everyone is a candidate for minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, according to the Mayo Clinic. According to American Society for Reproductive Medicine, minimally invasive gynecologic surgery isn’t recommended for women who have had previous “open” surgeries in the abdominal area. The choice of surgery depends on the condition, as minimally invasive techniques are only currently used to treat certain ailments, according to the ASRM.

Ask your doctor who may qualify for minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, laparoscopic surgery or robotic surgery.
