Minimally Invasive Gynecological Surgery

The field of minimally invasive surgery has developed rapidly in the last few decades and patients seeking care for gynecological conditions or infertility are among those benefitting most. In fact, hysterectomy is one of the most common surgical procedures performed through minimally invasive approaches. Typically, minimally invasive gynecological surgery (MIGS) provides faster recovery and better postoperative experiences for patients, including pain control, fewer or no incisions, and a faster return to daily activities.

In addition to treating benign gynecological conditions, such as fibroids and endometriosis, MIGS are also helping women correct conditions that might be preventing them from becoming pregnant. 

USF Health’s In Vitro Fertilization team (IVF) has a special interest in minimally invasive reproductive surgical techniques in diagnosing and treating benign gynecologic conditions. Our emphasis is on providing high quality patient care by treating these disorders with same day endoscopic procedures (office hysteroscopy, office-based polypectomy, septum resection, Asherman syndrome etc.), advanced laparoscopic surgeries with and without robotic assistance. For more information on MIGS and other advanced reproductive surgical options, call 813-250-2520.

Among several areas, USF Health uses MIGS in Obstetrics and Gynecology and helping many women overcome common benign gynecological conditions, such as:

  • Fibroids
