You and your loved ones will receive white glove care whether you are in our operating suites or in the waiting room.
Communication is Prioritized For You and Your Loved Ones
You and loved ones are kept well informed throughout your stay by one of our medical experts.
As much as we’re proud of our success rates, we are most proud of our approach to get you results. Our team of experts work hand in hand so you get the full force of our combined experience.
On the day of your procedure, we introduce you to the setting with a tour of MRSC so that you are comfortable and visually understand the flow of your surgery day.
Next, you’ll be prepped for your procedure and given continuous updates on what the next steps are. This helps our patients have a better understanding of what is happening.
Every patient is closely monitored and tracked throughout the procedure day from the pre-operative, operative, and recovery stages.
Before Your Procedure
We review all your labs on file, your medical history, and see if there are any medical contraindications that need to be addressed prior to your procedure.
You may be instructed to go to a specialist or primary care physician depending on the type of clearance you may need.
The Day of Your Procedure
From the moment you enter our facility, our main focus is your patient experience. We pride ourselves on white-glove care and ensure that you and your loved ones are kept well informed throughout your entire stay with us.
We work as a team to make sure your communication is prioritized.
On the day of your procedure, you will be taken on a tour of our facility to introduce you to the setting so you fully understand what will be happening and where.
After the facility tour is complete, you will be prepped for your procedure and be given continuous updates about your next steps. Our team approach allows us to keep you well monitored and tracked from the pre-operative area, to our operative suites, and finally in our post-operative recovery area.
After Your Procedure
Approximately 5-7 days after your procedure, we will check your wound sites to make sure that you are recovering properly.
About 2 weeks after your wound check, once pathology results are in, you will have a scheduled postoperative discussion with your surgeon, review any findings, and discuss your next steps.
Gynecological Surgery Definitions
Operative Laparoscopy is an outpatient surgical procedure that involves a narrow fiber optic scope (laparoscope) inserted through a few tiny incisions in your abdomen. It allows your doctor to see inside your body to evaluate the structures of your reproductive system, including the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and uterus.
Operative Hysteroscopy is commonly used as a diagnostic tool (for possible causes of infertility) or for treatment. It is recommended when a woman has a history of abnormal uterine bleeding, removal of scar tissue, called adhesions, to locate an intrauterine device (IUD), or to perform sterilization by blocking the fallopian tubes.
Treatment of a Missed Abortion is not an elective abortion and is often referred to as a missed miscarriage or silent miscarriage. Most miscarriages that occur early in pregnancy won’t require treatment if the tissue is expelled naturally. If this doesn’t happen, your doctor will typically recommend a D&C procedure. This allows your doctor to open the cervix to remove the contents of the pregnancy which can cut down on infections that can occur if the fetal tissue remains in your body.
Dilation & Curettage (D&C) is a surgical procedure in which the cervix is dilated so that the uterine lining can be scraped using a special spoon shaped instrument called a curette. This procedure is typically performed after miscarriage or to remove cysts, tumors or abnormal tissue.
Laparoscopic Myomectomy is a minimally invasive technique requiring only tiny abdominal incisions. This method is recommended for women who have a small number of subserous fibroids. Your surgeon will remove the fibroids using thin scopes that contain surgical and viewing instruments. Recovery is typically 2-4 weeks.
Endometriosis Treatment options will be determined by your doctor and may include “watchful waiting” where your disease will be monitored over time, pain medication, hormone therapy or surgery. Typical surgical procedures for endometriosis include laparoscopy and laparotomy.
Drainage of Ovarian Cyst Vaginal also known as transvaginal cyst aspiration involves using a transvaginal ultrasound probe inserted into the vagina to find the cyst and aid in the safe passage of the drainage needle. The probe is covered in an antiseptic cream to reduce risk of infection and you will be injected with a local anesthetic to numb the area. Once numb, a small needle will be inserted inside the cyst, your doctor will use a syringe to drain the fluid. The needle will be removed once the cyst has been drained.
Laparoscopic Ovarian Cystectomy is a minimally invasive surgery requiring only tiny abdominal incisions. Your surgeon will remove the cyst(s) through these incisions by using thin scopes that contain surgical and viewing instruments to extract the mass.
