Dr. David Ghozland is especially proud to offer his patients the option of a nearly scarless hysterectomy, which is a breakthrough single-incision technique few surgeons in the U.S. can perform due to its complexity and inverted nature.
The scarless hysterectomy is an ideal option for patients looking for a fantastic surgery experience that leaves virtually no visible scar and involves less pain due to the lack of multiple incisions.
How is the single site hysterectomy performed?
This robotic surgery is an extremely innovative and scarless procedure that involves a small, 2 .5 centimeter incision buried within the bellybutton. Through this tiny incision, Dr. Ghozland is able to perform a full hysterectomy without leaving a visible scar.
What are the benefits of nearly scarless hysterectomy?
Patients will enjoy the additional benefits of:
- Reduced recovery time
- Less pain
- Faster return to daily activities and work
Who would be a candidate for scarless hysterectomy?
Dr. Ghozland’s nearly scarless hysterectomy is best performed on women who have a smaller uterus with less complicated cases. Depending on the severity of the situation, scarless hysterectomy may not be an option. Each patient will receive a thorough examination to determine why type of hysterectomy is most appropriate for her situation.
Are there risks involved with scarless hysterectomy?
Common surgery risks such as bleeding, infection and injury to adjacent organs can occur with scarless hysterectomy. However, there are fewer risks involved with this procedure due to its minimally invasive nature compared to other hysterectomy techniques.
