Mom Central is getting the word out about a great website that will undoubtedly help many women. Before committing to a major gynecological surgery, be sure to check out any and all less invasive alternatives.
As technological advances make less invasive procedures more popular, more and more doctors are getting familiar with the techniques and intricacies. GREAT health news for the average woman! The more doctors familiar and practicing less invasive techniques, the better the chance that you or someone you love can reap the benefit.
From the AAGL website:
As a diagnostic tool, gynecologic endoscopy – the use of a miniaturized telescopic device to see inside the abdomen and female organs — is unparalleled in its ability to permit the physician visual examination of internal organs and early detection of gynecologic disorders.
This information is brought to you in the hopes that you will make an informed decision regarding your health care. Less invasive procedures reduce the risk of infection, minimize scarring and blood loss as well as decreased post-operative pain which contribute to a faster recovery.
