The Woman's Hospital of Texas is committed to providing minimally-invasive surgical options, and the numbers tell the results. Approximately 85 percent of surgeries performed here are minimally invasive – more than double the number the average hospital provides.
Several surgeries are performed via laparoscopy, including:
- Tubal ligation
- Fertility and endometriosis
Minimally-invasive surgery means less blood loss, less pain medication, less scarring, and faster recovery. Depending on the procedure, many patients are able to resume normal activities within a week as opposed to the four–to–six weeks' recovery time of traditional surgical methods. Many procedures can even be done on an outpatient basis.
