Laparoscopic Removal of Benign Tumors

Any other finding but healthy and normal makes patients nervous. Sometimes tumors grow in the gynecological tract but are benign. However, surgical removal is recommended because these tumors may be causing pain or affecting functionality of the organs involved.

Less Invasive Approach; The benefits of minimally invasive gynecological surgeries

At the Johns Hopkins Hospital, our surgeons are advocates of less invasive approaches to gynecological surgeries. These surgeries have the following benefits:

  • Faster recovery
  • Less pain
  • Smaller incisions
  • Early return to normal activities
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Decreased risk of infection

Robotic Assisted surgery for benign gynecological tumors

Robotic assisted surgery provides our surgeons with a groundbreaking alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy. It enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision. Learn more about our About Robotic Surgery  and our Surgical Expertise. 

Robotic assisted surgery may be used in surgeries for diagnoses such as endometriosis/endometrial hyperplasia, myomectomy, prolapse, and urogynecologic diagnoses.
