Gynecologic conditions that may require minimally invasive surgery include:


    Pelvic pain

    Ovarian cysts


    Uterine anomalies

Dr. Hinson performs dozens of procedures using minimally invasive approaches. Remember that the goal of any surgery is to make you better. Minimally invasive surgery can accomplish this for the most part, while other times a more traditional approach is necessary.

Procedures we perform include:

    Hysterectomy. Hysterectomy is the removal of the uterus through tiny incisions. Prior hysterectomy surgeries would mean large incision and long recovery period.  Now women can go home the same day.

    Myomectomy. The doctor will remove uterine fibroids using tiny, local incisions.

    Treatment of ovarian cysts. Your doctor removes the cyst by making a small incision in the abdomen. Using the laparoscope and instruments near the pubic bone, your doctor removes or aspirates the cyst.

    Pelvic pain. Pelvic pain is difficult to diagnose. Using the laparoscope, your doctor can get an enhanced view of your reproductive organs and find possible causes of your pain.

    Treatment of endometriosis. Using the laparoscope, the doctor can remove the adhesions growing from the uterus to other organs. This should help alleviate your pain.

The Minimally Invasive Surgeries Performed

The idea behind minimally invasive surgery is to use smaller incisions, or existing entryways into the body, with short term recovery time.

During a laparoscopic procedure, your surgeon makes tiny incisions in your abdomen. Surgical instruments are inserted into those incisions, as well as a camera to enhance the visual field for the surgeon. The surgeon then performs the surgery, making the necessary repairs, and removes the instruments and stitches the incisions.

During a robotic procedure, your doctor makes tiny incisions in your abdomen for placement of instruments. The doctor then inserts the surgical instruments; a tiny robot and a camera.  The doctor than performs the surgery from a nearby console, equipped with a large monitor and controls. Your surgeon controls the robot by manipulating the controls at the console. The monitor provides an enhanced, detailed image of the operating field.  Removes the instruments and stitches the incisions.

In addition to the other benefits provided by minimally invasive surgery, robotic surgery provides your surgeon with vividly detailed view of the operating field and greater dexterousness, allowing access to, otherwise, hard-to-reach places.

If you are in need of gynecology surgeries or services, please call Dr. Hinson today at 801-364-4030.  We have served women from all over the Salt Lake Area including Sandy and are here to serve your needs.
