An ovarian cystectomy is where an ovarian cyst (a fluid‐filled sac in or on the ovary) is removed. Minimally invasive laparoscopic surgical techniques are usually used to remove these cysts.

An oophorectomy is the removal of one or both of your ovaries, while a salpingectomy removes one or both of your fallopian tubes. Depending on your condition, these may  be performed at the same time.

As a fellowship-trained minimally invasive gynecologic surgeon (MIGS), Dr. DeNoble specializes in minimally-invasive surgery for treatment of many gynecologic conditions including resection of endometriosis.

Hysteroscopy is performed using a long, thin camera which is introduced into the uterine cavity. It allows us to diagnose problems inside the uterus and to remove fibroids, polyps, and resect uterine septums and scar tissue.

Why Minimally Invasive Surgery?

Traditionally, gynecologic surgery has been performed through large abdominal incisions which require longer hospital stay and longer time for recovery before return to usual activities. We know this is not ideal, especially for today’s modern, busy woman! 

Minimally-invasive surgery (also known as laparoscopic surgery) is performed through 2-4 tiny incisions, each less than an inch long, and associated with:

  • Less blood loss
  • Less cutting and internal scarring
  • Smaller, more cosmetic scars
  • Less pain as you heal
  • Less complications such as infection
  • Quicker discharge from the hospital (same day or next day)
  • Faster overall recovery and return to normal activities

What Surgeries Can Be Performed Laparoscopically?

  • Total or Supracervical Hysterectomy
  • Myomectomy
  • Ovarian Cystectomy
  • Removal of Ovaries and/or Fallopian Tubes
  • Resection of Endometriosis or Adhesions
  • Tubal Ligation

Why Don’t All OB/GYNs Offer Minimally Invasive Procedures?

More than 50% of hysterectomies done for benign conditions in the US are still performed by open surgery! Many OB/GYNs lack the training and expertise to perform these surgeries, or are skilled for more simple laparoscopic surgeries but not more complex ones such as for hysterectomy or myomectomy. In addition, many general OB/GYNs’ focus is on obstetrical care and not surgical.
