The word “surgery” often conjures up thoughts of severe pain and lengthy recovery, keeping you from your day-to-day activities. While traditional surgery that involves large abdominal incisions was once the only option for a variety of gynecologic diagnoses, the University of Michigan can offer a minimally invasive approach– including robotic surgery – for most gynecologic conditions. Minimally invasive surgery means less postoperative pain, less risk of wound infection, less blood loss, less scarring and faster recovery time. Most patients can go home with their family within 24 hours of their surgery.
