Minimally Invasive Surgery For Women

At Memorial Satilla Health, we know that great women’s care starts with caring. At some point in your life, you may need surgery for:

  • Abnormal bleeding
  • Colorectal complications
  • Endometriosis
  • Incontinence
  • Infertility
  • Overactive bladder
  • Pelvic pain and prolapse

Where you choose to go for surgery is important, and so is the type of surgery you choose. Minimally invasive surgery can mean shorter hospital stays, a faster recovery and less pain. We offer minimally-invasive procedures for:


Single-Site Hysterectomy - The single site approach uses a robot to limit the number of incisions to just one. With one, one-inch incision, hidden in the navel, it's what you don't see that is so impressive; no visible scar.

Laparoscopic Hysterectomy - The uterus is removed either vaginally or through small incisions made in the abdomen. The surgeon can see the target anatomy on a standard 2D video monitor thanks to a miniaturized camera, inserted into the abdomen through the small incisions. A laparoscopic approach offers surgeons better visualization of affected structures than either vaginal or abdominal hysterectomy alone.


Laparoscopic Hernia Repair – A surgeon inserts small instruments, including a tiny video camera, through small holes made in the abdominal wall. The doctor performs the surgery while viewing the hernia on a TV monitor. They may or may not use mesh to help fix the damaged area.

Laparoscopic Appendectomy – Three small incisions are made so the surgeon can remove the appendix. This surgery usually takes less than an hour. This approach can lead to less scarring and blood loss.


Laparoscopic Myomectomy – This surgery removed fibroids while keeping your uterus in place. Small incisions are made, which can lead to less pain and a faster recovery.


Laparoscopic Endometriosis Excision – Using small incisions and a small camera, your surgeon is able to see your abdominal/pelvic cavity so that he/she may remove the endometriosis. This is done with little risk to other areas of your body.
