WHAT IS 3D TECHNOLOGY FOR GYN SURGERIES?


At the CWC GYN Surgical Institute, we think every woman who faces the decision to have a gynecological surgery should be aware of her options. We have dedicated ourselves to providing our patients with the highest quality care, the leading surgeons, and the most innovative technologies available to ensure the highest quality procedures, and a decrease in post-operative discomfort, scarring, and recovery time.

That is why now offer the most advanced technology to perform gynecological procedures, the 3D imaging technology.

The new approach to performing gynecological procedures at Complete Women Care means:

  • Less time under anesthesia
  • Less time in the operating room
  • Less recovery time
  • Less trauma and scarring to the abdominal wall
  • Less postoperative pain

IT ALL STARTS WITH LESS


Laparoscopic surgery is a form of minimally invasive surgery traditionally performed through 3-5 small incisions made in the abdomen. Laparo-endoscopic single site (LESS) surgery represents an evolution in laparoscopic surgery with the entire surgical procedure performed through one small incision made in the belly button, leaving a surgical scar that is virtually undetectable.

LESS SCARRING, LESS TRAUMA ON ABDOMINAL TISSUE

HOW A LESS PROCEDURE IS PERFORMED


LESS surgery involves the use of an access port that serves as an entryway into the abdomen. Surgical instruments are placed and manipulated through the port. A thin, flexible, high-definition video camera (laparoscope) is also inserted through the port so that the surgeon can view the operating field.

RESTORING NATURAL DEPTH PERCEPTION AND PRECISION


Surgeons lose some of their natural depth perception and precision when migrating from open surgery to laparoscopic surgery. Our 3D technology provides high-definition images that help restore the surgeon’s natural 3D vision and depth perception. Its articulating-tip design makes it possible to view the desired organs and see areas not previously accessible with standard rigid laparoscopes. The result for the surgeon is better sight lines and the ability to peer around anatomical structures and perform more precise grasping, dissection and suturing—something that is lacking in the flat images provided by 2D imaging systems.

3D HYSTERECTOMIES


A Hysterectomy is the most commonly performed 3D procedure in gynecological surgery.

DO YOU NEED A HYSTERECTOMY?


If you are considering hysterectomy, you’re not alone. According to the United States Department of Health and Human Services, about one-third of American women will have a hysterectomy by the time they are sixty years of age. Over 615,000 women in the United States will undergo a hysterectomy this year.

REASONS FOR A HYSTERECTOMY


Your doctor may recommend a hysterectomy as treatment for a wide variety of conditions.The most common symptoms that lead to hysterectomy are fibroids, heavy bleeding, endometriosis, prolapse, and cancer.

While hysterectomies may sometimes be absolutely necessary, in some cases, the symptoms can be treated with non-surgical options such as hormone replacement therapy or an office-based treatment. Make sure you explore all your treatment options with your doctor.

SPEAK UP ABOUT YOUR HYSTERECTOMY CHOICES


If you and your doctor have determined that hysterectomy is the best course of action for your symptoms, make sure you talk through your choices for procedures. Today’s less invasive hysterectomy options, like laparoscopic or vaginal, can help you significantly reduce hospital and recovery times and minimize scarring and pain afterwards. However, there are some risks and potential complications associated with surgery. Click here for more information.

Talk to your doctor about which organs need to be removed, too. Some research suggests keeping your cervix after hysterectomy may reduce the risk of pelvic floor prolapse and preserve sexual function. A laparoscopic hysterectomy offers a less invasive alternative to traditional abdominal hysterectomy. Learn more about laparoscopic hysterectomy.

LESS SUPPORTS HEALTHCARE INITIATIVES


LESS surgery addresses the “triple aim” objectives of current healthcare reform :Improving the patient experience—including quality and satisfaction—improving the health of populations through faster recovery and return to normal daily living, and reducing the cost of healthcare via shorter hospital stays and costs associated with postoperative care and complications.
