Today, we live in the advanced medical era when we have numerous approaches to gynecological treatment. We have powerful drugs and injections that can offer excellent treatment for many medical conditions, however, for some illness and condition, having the need for surgery is irreplaceable. Even though traditional open surgery has an immense contribution towards overall healthcare, it does have several complications associated with it as well. Thankfully, laparoscopic surgery has emerged to offer the best results in surgical till date. So, let’s have a brief introduction to Minimally Invasive Gynecological Surgery (MIGS).
As the term clearly indicates, MIGS is a gynecological procedure carried out through a minimal incision, unlike the open surgical technique where the procedures are executed by making a large incision near the lower abdomen.
Procedure of MIGS
The MIGS initiates by making a few minute incisions, (as small as 1/8th of an inch) near the belly button. Through these orifices, the doctor inserts some carbon dioxide gas to create a working space for the operation.
A thin instrument called the laparoscope is inserted inside the cavity along with a camera, cold light source, and other necessary equipment. The camera capture the real-time visuals of the cavity. Along with the movement of the laparoscope, the surgeon carries out the procedure effectively and then the instruments are removed after completion.
Advantages of MIGS Over Open Surgery
The benefits of laparoscopic gynecological surgery are the same as that of any laparoscopic surgery. These are as follows-
- Better Aesthetics Due To Much Lesser Scarring
- Lesser Risk Of Surgical Complications Such As Bleeding, Clotting, Infection
- Lower Chances Of Need For Blood Transfusion
- Much Shorter Hospitals Stay
- Quicker Resume Of Daily Life Activities
These benefits make it a more preferred surgery technique and needless to say, it is substituting the traditional open gynecological surgery significantly.
Scope of MIGS
Some of the most common minimally invasive gynecological procedures that are carried out are as follows-
- Laparoscopic Hysterectomy And Hysteroscopy
- Laparoscopic Myomectomy
