That’s why Fairview hospitals and clinics offer such a wide variety of options for obstetric and gynecologic (OB-GYN) surgery, including minimally invasive procedures (MIP) . Call 855-FAIRVIEW (toll-free) to make an appointment with an OB-GYN specialist today!
MIPs—also referred to as laparoscopic surgery—are a popular alternative to many traditional surgeries. MIPs might be performed in several ways, including through a few small incisions, robot-assisted and single site (one incision).
With MIPs, you’ll have minimal scarring, fewer complications and less pain. And you’ll enjoy a faster recovery, shorter hospital stay, and a quicker return to your normal activities.
Minimally invasive OB-GYN surgery is relatively new, and you may have noticed: everyone offers it. Yet, the leading-edge OB-GYN surgeons at Fairview adopted this technology early on and have performed minimally invasive surgeries for more than two years, treating hundreds of women.
“In my practice, nearly all patients should have minimally invasive procedures,” says Michele Cowling, MD, a Fairview OB-GYN physician. “Only in a very rare circumstance would I recommend traditional surgery.”
Of course, you’ll want to work with your doctor to determine the most appropriate method for yourself.
