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.

Benefits of Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery

Women who seek care from a gynecology specialist trained in MIGS often benefit greatly. Advantages include less pain, blood loss and scarring, as well as a decreased risk of infection.

We deserve the best life we can have and there are excellent doctors associated with Atlantic Health System who can help.
