Minimally Invasive Surgery Q&A



What is minimally invasive surgery?

Minimally invasive surgery requires only small incisions to treat a variety of gynecological conditions. The benefit of this type of surgery is that it causes less trauma to your body than traditional surgery might, so you can recover faster.

The surgical team at McDowell Mountain Gynecology provides a variety of specialized surgeries on an outpatient basis in the on-site, state-of-the-art surgical suite or at an area hospital. They use minimally invasive surgery to treat:

  • Pelvic pain
  • Fibroids
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Endometriosis
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Irregular or heavy bleeding
  • Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Minimally invasive surgery can also treat pelvic organ prolapse, a condition where your reproductive structures fall down into the vaginal canal due to weak muscles. This condition is common after childbirth and in your menopausal and post-menopausal years.

What minimally invasive surgery services are available?

McDowell Mountain Gynecology offers a variety of minimally invasive surgeries to meet your unique needs.

Laparoscopic surgery

The surgical team uses laparoscopic techniques that involve specialized surgical tools that fit through small incisions. A scope with an attached camera sends images of your internal structures to an external monitor. Your provider views the images to make repairs or remove abnormal growths.

da Vinci Surgical System 

The da Vinci Surgical System combines robotic and computer technologies, which allows treatment of a broader range of conditions using a minimally invasive approach.

Dr. Spieldoch has received Master's training in robotic surgery and is highly skilled in the use of the da Vinci Surgical System.  She is experienced in the most advanced, minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures.

For the patient, benefits may include:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter recovery time
  • A faster return to normal daily activities
  • And in many cases, better clinical outcomes 

In-office surgery

McDowell Mountain Gynecology also offers a range of in-office surgical procedures, including:

  • Labial reduction
  • Dilation and curettage (D&C)
  • Diagnostic hysteroscopy
  • Endometrial and vulvar biopsies
  • Uterine endometrial ablation

For in-office procedures, you can receive anesthesia to keep you comfortable and relaxed. After the surgery is complete, you can go home without any downtime or limitations in your activities.

When should I consider minimally invasive surgery?

In most cases, the team at McDowell Mountain Gynecology treats gynecologic conditions with conservative therapies like medications and lifestyle changes before recommending surgery.

The surgical team carefully evaluates your overall health and diagnosis to determine if you would benefit from surgery. They tailor a surgical plan that focuses on a fast recovery and long-term relief of your symptoms.
