CLOSED UTERINE SURGERY
A closed uterine surgery, also known as laparoscopic surgery, is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat problems within the uterus. Instead of a large incision, this procedure is performed by making a few small punctures.
This method can be used to treat uterine fibroids, endometriosis, uterine wall abnormalities, and other intrauterine problems. During the procedure, a thin instrument called a laparoscope is used to visualize the inside of the uterus and perform the necessary procedures to address the problem. Additional instruments may be used by the surgeon if necessary.
Closed uterine surgery has several advantages. These include less pain, reduced blood loss, lower risk of infection, shorter hospital stay, and faster recovery time. Additionally, the presence of minimal scarring after the procedure is advantageous.
However, closed uterine surgery may not always be the appropriate choice. In some cases, open surgery may be more suitable.
Closed uterine surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia, and the duration of the procedure can vary depending on the patient’s condition. Mild bleeding and discomfort are normal after the procedure, but patients are generally allowed to return to their normal activities within a few days.
