Minimally Invasive, Robotic and Laparoscopic Surgery

gynecologic surgery

South Shore Hospital uses state-of-the-art technology for minimally invasive gynecologic surgeries. The operative suite team consists of specially trained nurses, anesthesiologists, surgical technicians and gynecologic surgeons to ensure safety and the best patient outcomes.

Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is any procedure considered less invasive than open (traditional) surgery and results in minimal scarring, less pain, and faster healing. MIS options at South Shore Health include laparoscopic surgery (laparoscopy) and robotic-assisted surgery.

Laparoscopic surgery is video-assisted surgery where the camera illuminates the surgical field within the body. Benefits include smaller incisions, faster recoveries, lower costs, and often negates the need for an overnight hospital stay. 

Robotic surgery is the most advanced type of minimally invasive surgery. South Shore Health boasts several surgeons who specialize in this technique as a treatment option for gynecologic conditions including uterine fibroids, endometriosis, and pelvic floor disorders.
