The prospect of having surgery can be intimidating, even frightening. In the past, most surgical procedures carried a high risk of complications, and extensive, painful recovery. Thanks to advances in modern technology and medicine, major surgery is rarely necessary. A wide variety of conditions can be treated with minimally invasive surgeries. Katy, TX, OB/GYM, Taryll Jenkins, uses state-of-the-art laparoscopic technology.
A laparoscopic surgery, also called videoscopic surgery or minimally invasive surgery only requires small incisions. A tiny, lighted tube (called a port) is inserted through the incision or incisions, which acts as a surgical guide. A small video camera and specialized instruments pass through the tube. This sophisticated, video-guided procedure allows Dr. Jenkins to work with precision accuracy.
Due to the conservative nature of this technique, along with Dr. Jenkins unparalleled expertise, there is a low risk of complications. The smaller incision reduces bleeding and the risk of infection. Open surgery can be problematic in complex cases, and an extended recovery period can take a toll on your overall health.
Minimally invasive surgery can be completed in less time than traditional techniques, with significantly less pain. It is typically done on an outpatient basis, so you won’t even have to spend a night in the hospital. The recovery time is also reduced, allowing you to return to work and your normal daily activities sooner. Scarring is minimized or eliminated due to the tiny incision.
Laparoscopic techniques can be used for such procedures as ectopic (tubal) pregnancy, hysterectomy, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, bladder suspension and more. If you believe you may need surgery, or have been told you need surgery, visit Dr. Jenkins to learn about your options for a minimally invasive procedure. In many cases, he can provide non-surgical alternatives. He and his excellent staff are dedicated to helping you achieve and maintain optimal health, throughout every stage of life.
