What is a MIP Hysterectomy in Katy, TX?

Hysterectomy at Jenkins Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Medicine in Katy Area

Facing major surgery is a frightening prospect. With Dr. Taryll Jenkins’s compassion and expertise, he offers conservative options for any condition whenever possible. When surgery is unavoidable, he uses the least invasive method available. A minimally invasive procedure, or MIP, is an advanced surgical technique achieving the same result as open surgery with smaller incisions.

Hysterectomies are among the most common surgical procedures performed today. About one third of all American women will have a hysterectomy by the age of 60. Sometimes it becomes necessary when conditions such as uterine bleeding do not respond to alternatives. In some cases, particularly advanced cancers, there may be no feasible alternative.

Total abdominal hysterectomies account for about 70 percent of all hysterectomies performed. This is the most invasive method, resulting in a scar several inches long, and requiring approximately two months of recovery time.

MIP hysterectomies leave little to no scar, and require significantly less recovery time. This is considered a low-risk surgery, and complications are rare – especially in the skilled hands of an experienced physician such as Dr. Jenkins.

The procedure

Laparoscopic hysterectomy is considered the least invasive technique, and is an option for most patients. This method uses a surgical camera, known as a laparoscope, to guide the surgery. It provides a detailed image on a video monitor, for precision accuracy. The laparoscope and special surgical instruments are tiny, so only very small incisions in the abdomen are required. Through these incisions, the uterus is detached and removed in small pieces.

General anesthesia is used during the surgery, which usually takes about two hours. Post-surgical pain and recovery time are significantly less with this method than open hysterectomy. The patient typically spends one or two nights in the hospital. Limited activity is necessary for a few weeks during recuperation. Closely following Dr. Jenkins post-operative instructions is imperative for a speedy and trouble-free recovery.

Dr. Jenkins was recommended to me from a friend. I had a visit with him and while the wait for him to come into the room was longer then I would like, he was great. I felt very comfortable with him and he answered all my questions and I didn't feel rushed. I will be back to see him today.
