Minimally Invasive Laparoscopic Surgery Q & A
What is minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery?
Rather than making large surgical incisions, minimally invasive surgery techniques use your body’s natural openings or require tiny incisions through which to pass the instruments.
At Femhealth Group, LLC, Dr. Martinez uses laparoscopic techniques to perform minimally invasive surgery. This type of surgery is also diagnostic and operative in nature and relies on a tiny camera (laparoscope) inserted through the navel. Dr. Martinez can use it to examine the outside of the uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, and other pelvic areas. It’s typically used to identify fibroids, polyps, and the causes of abnormal bleeding. As a treatment technique, Dr. Martinez uses the images to perform surgery using small incisions and tiny instruments.
Minimally invasive surgery techniques give Dr. Martinez more flexibility, control, and precision.

Minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery is also less costly than open surgery.
