IASO has 6 laparoscopy rooms, where all the minimally invasive procedures may be performed. The facilities are state-of-the-art and the staff are fully qualified.
 
Some of the procedures that may be performed are:

Laparoscopic surgery

  • Total or partial hysterectomy with or without the appendages
  • Ectopic (extrauterine) pregnancy treatment 
  • Removal of fibroids
  • Removal of ovarian masses
  • Endometriosis
  • Urogynecological problems (prolapse of internal genital organs, inconsistence)
  • Laparoscopic ligation of uterine cervix
  • Oncologic cases

 

Nowadays, minimally invasive techniques are gaining ground over open surgeries. This happens because:

  • The rapid advancements in technology allow the use of small instruments with extreme precision and the use of camera systems with high resolution images
  • There is scientific evidence available proving that these procedures are performed with greater safety, significantly limiting any complications.

What is laparoscopic surgery?

Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive surgical technique.

It provides access to the peritoneal cavity through small holes, avoiding large and painful incisions along the abdominal walls.

The surgeon views the organs magnified on a monitor, through a HD camera. These procedures are possible with the help of very fine instruments in a specially equipped operating room.

In gynecology, minimally invasive techniques are used both for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.

Benefits of laparoscopy over open surgery (laparotomy)

  • Excellent aesthetic results. Incisions in the order of 5-10 cm, as opposed to incisions measuring 7-10 cm for open surgery.
  • Much less postoperative pain due to these very small incisions.
  • Immediate mobilization, usually on the same day, and fast return to daily activities and professional obligations.
  • The immediate mobilization reduces the risk of thrombosis and hospital-acquired infections.
  • Less of a chance of postoperative adhesions, which could cause pain, ileus, infertility, etc. in the long run.
  • Minimal chance of postoperative hernia developing.

Attention:

In the event of very increased body weight or history of multiple open procedures in the past, it may be deemed necessary to have open surgery rather than laparoscopic.
