Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery
- Laparoscopic Assisted Vaginal Hysterectomy
This procedure requires only one hospital day with very small incisions on the abdomen under general anesthesia and patients generally experience a rapid rate of recovery.
- Hysteroscopic Excision of Polyps & Fibroids
This procedure can be done in-office under local anesthetic or in the Surgery Center of Mount Dora or the hospital under general anesthesia, both of which are out-patient "ambulatory" surgery. Most patients return home within six hours and resume normal activity within 48 hours.
Pelvic Prolapse Surgery
Pelvic Prolapse is a significant problem among peri- and post-menopausal women. Think of it as a large central hernia. This can be supported by a pessary or a patient can choose a surgical repair. So the surgery requires hospital admission for one to three days. There is a four to eight week recovery time, depending upon the extent of the surgical repair itself. Sometimes these surgeries can be combined with urinary leakage repairs. The formal names for the types of prolapse are as follows:
- Cystocele = loss of bladder support
- Rectocele = loss of rectal support
- Enterocoele = loss of cul-de-sac support
- Uterine Prolapse = loss of uterine support
Urinary leakage is a common problem for many women. Physical therapy and medication are often the first steps in treating this problem. Dr. Pillow can do a full evaluation of your specific condition to decide with you which treatment option is best, which may include one of the following surgeries:
- TVT Standard
- Kelly Plication
Dr. Pillow is very familiar with each of these surgeries and more unlisted procedures.
