Minimally Invasive Procedures: Alternatives to Major Abdominal Surgery
Vaginal Surgery The ultimate in minimally invasive procedures. Surgery performed through the vagina avoids any scars or painful incisions on the abdomen. It can be used for a variety of procedures including the treatment of prolapse, urinary incontinence, hysterectomy, and sometimes myomectomy.
Hysteroscopy A specialized type of vaginal surgery that uses a narrow high-tech telescope and instruments to look through the cervix and into the uterus to evaluate and treat problems within the uterus.
Single-Incision Laparoscopy Laparoscopy is a method of operating through tiny incisions on the abdomen. Most surgeons use multiple incisions that leave visible scars. We use only one, placed strategically within the navel that leaves a nearly invisible scar. Drs. Pelosi developed and perfected this specialized method decades ago and use it to manage many conditions including problems of the fallpoian tubes, the ovaries, the uterus, pelvic pain, fibroids, endometriosis, etc.
Mini-Laparotomy Laparotomy is the medical term for a large abdominal incision. A mini-laparotomy is a very small abdominal incision. The recovery from a mini-laparotomy is typically faster and more comfortable. We offer this approach for a wide variety of conditions that require an abdominal incision.
Fibroid Non-Surgical Treatments
Fibroids of the uterus are very common. They are not cancerous, but they can cause many problems including pain, bleeding and pressure. They come in all shapes and sizes. Their shape, size and number usually determine the choices of treatments that would work best for you, so a thorough evaluation is always the first step.
Full-Spectrum Hormonal Therapies Some fibroid symptoms can be effectively managed with a range of hormone therapies which can be administered as pills, injections or intrauterine devices (IUDs). These therapies are also useful, in some instances, to buy time before a planned surgery.
Endometrial Ablation Some types of bleeding problems can be well managed with removal (ablation) of the inner lining (endometrium) of the uterus. Endometrial ablation is done by several techniques. Some are done in the office and some in the hospital. This procedure is an option for special cases. It is not an option for women who wish to have a child in the future.
Embolization Some fibroids can be treated by blocking off their blood supply through a procedure known as uterine artery embolization (UAE) or uterine fibroid embolization. Embolization is done at the radiology center under light sedation. The uterine arteries are reached through a specialized IV in your upper thigh. Candidates for this procedure require preliminary testing some of which can be done during your consultation.
Urinary incontinence (urinary leakage) and vaginal prolapse (bulging or protrusion of the vagina) occur most frequently in women who have undergone vaginal childbirth, but they may also occur in women who have never had children. It is not uncommon to have both of these problems. The management of these conditions frequently does not require surgery and can sometimes be addressed at your initial visitl
Urodynamic Testing A thorough high-tech analysis of the status and functioning of the various components of your bladder that control the flow of urine helps to guide the management of urinary incontinence efficiently and effectively.
Pharmacotherapy For some types of urinary leakage, medication provides complete or partial relief and permits you to get back to your normal life without the need for time off or recovery.
Pelvic Floor Exercise Therapy Kegel exercises. Nearly everyone has heard of them, yet few do them properly. Properly done, Kegel exercises can improve urinary leakage in women who would otherwise require additional interventions. They can also improve vaginal prolapse and vaginal laxity in many women. Read Dr. Pelosi's interview on the topic in Shape Magazine.
Pessary Therapy Made from soft flexible plastic, and similar in appearance to a contraceptive diaphragm, a pessary provides support where you need it, when you need it. They come in all sizes, they're easy to insert and remove, and they can effectively manage many types of prolapse and urinary incontinence without discomfort and without surgery.
