Advanced Gynecological Procedures and Minimally Invasive Surgery
The Margot Perot Center’s Gynecological Surgery program has been accredited as a Center of Excellence for Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery by the American Institute of Minimally Invasive Surgery. Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas has some of the most advanced surgical technology available to help reduce the impact of surgery on your life.
Surgeons on the medical staff at Texas Health Dallas utilize advanced instrumentation, including robotic-assisted procedures. Popular advanced gynecological procedures offered include:
- Pelvic Floor Repair
- Uterine Fibroid Surgery (Myomectomy)
- Complex Endometriosis Surgery
Thanks to advances in technology, hysterectomies can usually be effectively performed without a big incision. According to the Journal of Minimally Invasive Gynecology, approximately 600,000 women undergo hysterectomy each year. It is the second most common surgery for women, behind a caesarean section.
Minimally invasive hysterectomies generally require only a few small incisions, which enable patients to resume normal life activities faster — within days, rather than the usual weeks required with traditional surgery. This advanced surgical procedure offers numerous benefits over traditional open surgery.
Pelvic Floor Repair (Sacrocolpopexy)
Sacrocolpopexy and sacrospinous fixation are procedures to surgically correct vaginal vault prolapse. They can also be performed following a hysterectomy to treat uterine prolapse and provide long-term support of the vagina. These surgeries are either performed laparoscopically or vaginally. Incisions are avoided in most cases.
Uterine Fibroid Surgery (Myomectomy)
Texas Health Dallas offers advanced surgical solutions for uterine fibroids that are minimally invasive, allow for rapid recovery, have a low rate of recurrence, and eliminate the need for a hysterectomy. Surgeons on the medical staff can remove fibroids through small incisions and cutting edge surgical equipment. They are able usually to reconstruct the uterine wall, regardless of the size or location of the fibroids. The unique level of control and precision can help prevent a possible uterine rupture (tearing) during future pregnancies.
Complex Endometriosis Surgery
The surgery to treat the condition that causes the uterine lining to grow outside the uterus can now be performed with minimal scarring, thanks to advanced surgical procedures at Texas Health Dallas. This innovative approach can allow for less blood loss and shorter recovery times.
Superior Surgical Facilities
The facility has five large operating rooms where an average of 14 surgeries are performed every day. Patient-friendly operating rooms are self-contained, with pre-op located nearby in order to minimize uncomfortable movements for the patient. Families are also able to stay with the patient before surgery, with no limitation on the number of possible visitors.
