Women who may need an open hysterectomy or other major gynecological procedures and are concerned about a lengthy recovery have another option – minimally invasive gynecologic surgery (MIGS). These state-of-the-art procedures use small incisions, which results in shorter hospital stays and a faster return to daily activities. Many MIGS can even be performed on an outpatient basis.
Atlantic Health System MIGS surgeons are board-certified, fellowship-trained, gynecology specialists with experience in the use of hysteroscopic, laparoscopic and robotic-assisted techniques to address both common and complex conditions of the female anatomy.
