Laparoscopic Surgery

Most pelvic surgery can be performed on an outpatient basis using a Laparoscope. Laparoscopic surgery is minimally invasive. A tiny telescope is placed through a small hole under the belly button. Carbon dioxide is pumped into the belly cavity creating a space whereby the organs can be visualized with a tiny camera. Dr. Davidson, using a TV screen, guides the instruments through two other small holes and the procedure is performed with little cutting.

Advantages of Laparoscopy include

  • Major surgery without a large incision
  • Less pain after surgery
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Return to work sooner
  • Return to regular activity sooner
