Minimally invasive gynecologic surgery is surgery that uses smaller incisions than typical surgery. Gynecologic surgeons perform minimally invasive surgery by inserting a tiny camera that allows them to see inside your body.
Minimally invasive gynecologic surgery can be performed by the surgeon using small instruments or a robotic system (such as the da Vinci® Surgical System).
