Conditions that may prompt Dr. Quartell to consider gynecologic laparoscopic surgery include:

What are the Benefits of Gynecologic Laparoscopic Surgery?

Gynecologic laparoscopic surgery has many benefits in comparison to traditional methods of gynecologic surgery. This method of surgery involves smaller incisions – laparoscopic surgery is ideal for patients who are nervous about the risks associated with invasive surgery or who don’t want to take extensive time off for recovery. These techniques are associated with a much faster recovery time than traditional methods, as well as lower risks of infection and bleeding, shorter hospital stays, and less pain and scarring. Along with experience in general laparoscopic methods, Dr. Quartell is also skilled in performing laparoscopic robotic surgery. This method utilizes robotic arms that are steadier than human hands, and can be better at fine manipulations. 

How is Gynecologic Laparoscopic Surgery Performed?

When you meet with Dr. Quartell, he will review your symptoms, medical history, and health profile to determine if you are a good candidate for laparoscopic surgery. Laparoscopic surgery is almost always performed under general anesthesia, so you will be asleep during the procedure. The procedure itself begins with the insertion of a catheter to collect the patient’s urine. Then, a small needle is used to fill the patient’s abdomen with carbon dioxide gas to keep the abdomen wall away from organs and reduce the risk of injury. A small incision can then be made at the naval, where the laparoscope will be inserted to make a diagnosis or perform a treatment. 

What is Recovery from Laparoscopic Surgery Like?

Most laparoscopic surgery patients are able to go home the same day as surgery – they will just need someone else to drive them home. Patients who undergo gynecologic laparoscopic surgery in Livingston can expect to feel slightly sore and tired after surgery. Recovery time varies depending on the patient and the procedure that was performed, but in general, recovery will be much shorter than the alternative of traditional open surgery.
