What Do You Mean By Minimally Invasive Surgery?
Minimally invasive surgery enables a surgeon to treat a patient’s issue without incurring significant harm to the body. Contrary to conventional surgery, minimally invasive surgery allows you to resume your normal routine without any need for hospitalization. Often, patients can go home the very same day as their treatment.
There are two kinds of minimally invasive surgery: Robotic surgery and laparoscopic (also known as endoscopic) surgery.
- Robotic surgery
Dr. Oktay employs 3D technology to create a detailed ‘image’ of the surgical area and robotic arms to create cuts precisely and safely.
- Laparoscopic surgery
Dr. Oktay drives small tubes and tiny cameras into the body. This equipment offers him a comprehensive view of the surgical area and makes fewer, less invasive cuts.
Minimally invasive surgery is a new frontier in treating fertility issues and various other complex health concerns.
What Fertility Procedures Can Be Performed Using Minimally Invasive Techniques?
Dr. Oktay performs various minimally invasive surgical techniques to treat the following reproductive problems:
- Hysteroscopic surgery- treatment of uterine septum, polyps, intrauterine fibroids, or intrauterine scars
- Myomectomy- is a procedure that eliminates uterine fibroids
- Ovarian transplantation- is the process of implanting previously frozen ovarian tissue
- Tubal surgery, which includes sterilization reversal- untangles knotted tubes
- Fertility-sparing cystectomy and endometrioma excision- are procedures that preserve ovarian function while not jeopardizing fertility
What Threats Are Associated With Minimally Invasive Surgery?
Any surgical technique, whether minimally invasive or not, carries the potential of complications. Although minimally invasive surgery is relatively low-risk, minor risks such as infection, bleeding, or an unpleasant response to anesthesia are always possible. Like with any surgery, it is critical to follow post-surgical care guidelines and pursue medical counsel if you have any problems.
Dr. Oktay collaborates with you to assess how your personal medical history affects your ability to undergo a minimally invasive reproductive procedure. As an established laparoscopic and robotic surgeon, he stresses your comfort and safety above everything else, both before and following your procedure.
Minimally invasive procedures for infertility, like robotic and laparoscopic surgery, resulting in reduced discomfort, blood loss, minimal scarring, better results, and quick recovery. Nevertheless, at times, open surgery is the best option. So, do not decide without first consulting your doctor.
