FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — Northside Hospital has introduced new "mini laparoscopy" technology, which makes conventional laparoscopy even less invasive than before.
"Results from this new, even less-invasive technology have been remarkable, and I look forward to sharing my recent clinical experiences in presentations at upcoming meetings and workshops," said Dr. Ceana Nezhat, internationally renowned gynecologic surgeon and program director for advanced minimally invasive gynecologic surgery at Northside Hospital.
Mini laparotomy is one of the two most common methods of tubal ligation (the other common sterilization procedure is a laparoscopy). Most women opt to have this procedure done right after giving birth.
After a minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery, patients have little pain and discomfort and are able to return to normal activities within a few days.
