Dr. Agneshwar is trained in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery and specializes in evaluating and treating people who have a wide range of noncancerous (benign) gynecologic conditions, including heavy menstrual periods (menorrhagia), irregular menstrual periods (metrorrhagia), pelvic pain, endometriosis and ovarian cysts.
Minimal Invasive Surgery may also be used for partial or total hysterectomies and tubal ligations (Common referred to at tying one’s tubes.)
A minimally invasive approach has been shown to improve outcomes and reduce discomfort, inconvenience and expense. Minimally Invasive Surgery allows your care to be provided in an outpatient surgical suite and very rarely require a hospital stay.
Innovative treatment options
Your doctor will talk with you about a range of innovative treatment options and develop an individualized treatment plan that might involve one of these minimally invasive gynecologic approaches:
- Hysteroscopic surgery. This technique does not require any incisions and has minimal recovery time.
- Advanced laparoscopic surgery. This technique has been shown to be an effective treatment that results in shorter hospital stays, less discomfort, and a shorter recovery period. Laparoscopic radiofrequency ablation is a less invasive alternative to hysterectomy and myomectomy. It involves no cutting of the uterine tissue, and most women are typically back to normal activity within seven days.
- Vaginal surgery. This is the most minimally invasive approach to major gynecologic surgery. It has all of the recovery advantages associated with laparoscopic surgery, while also avoiding any abdominal incisions.
