Minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery offers great benefits to Katy patients
Laparoscopic surgery, sometimes called minimally invasive surgery, is a new surgical technique allowing physicians to address medical issues in the abdomen or pelvic cavity that before would have required larger incisions and more complicated procedures. Laparoscopic surgery uses a telescopic lens system allowing the physician to view the inside of the abdomen on a television screen while performing the surgery.
In addition to a smaller scar and less recovery time, laparoscopic surgery offers other benefits over traditional open procedures, including less blood loss, less risk of exposing internal organs to outside contaminants, less time in the hospital following surgery, less risk of infection, and less overall pain. When all of these benefits are combined it leads to the greatest overall advantage; patients feel better and get back to their normal daily activities as quickly as possible.
Some of the most common laparoscopic procedures include hysterectomy, ovarian cyst removal, ovary removal, and endometriosis treatment. Of course, surgical treatment, whether traditional or minimally invasive, is almost never the first treatment approach. This is why it’s important to work with a physician that you know and trust. Dr. Taryll Jenkins of Jenkins Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Medicine in Katy, Texas, has been treating patients experiencing pain, heavy periods, irregular menstrual cycles, or other problems. Dr. Jenkins works with the patient to quickly and thoroughly diagnose the problem and determine a treatment plan. In some cases, these issues can be fixed with medication or less invasive treatment.

Dr. Jenkins and his team are completely committed to helping their patients find the right treatment in a comforting and caring environment.
