Treatment using Minimally Invasive TechniquesOur specialists in the Department of Women Health carry out complex operations and apply modern methods of surgical treatment including minimally invasive techniques. These techniques significantly relieve pain and reduce the patient’s rehabilitation time. Using such techniques can also make treatment more effective, yet less severe for patients. Minimally invasive techniques are employed for treating ovarian cancer, uterine cancer, cervical cancer, breast cancer, and other malignancies.
An excellent example of these minimally invasive techniques is an endoscopic treatment, which allows for any surgery to be completed without any incisions. Endoscopic treatment is even possible for the removal of affected organs. Endoscopic treatment is available for treating endometriosis, uterine fibroids, uterine polyps, and ovarian cysts.
