Dr. SIlver is skilled in using advanced techniques like laparoscopy to help women in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, CA, get the diagnostic and surgical care they need without the risks associated with major surgery.
Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive technique that can help diagnose and manage a wide range of issues without the need for major surgery. The laparascopic technique uses a special instrument, called a laparoscope, inserted through a tiny incision in your abdomen. The instrument is equipped with a special camera that enables Dr. Silver to see the treatment area on a monitor.
Laparoscopy is much less invasive than traditional techniques, which means there are fewer risks and the recovery process is much faster. Plus, pain and discomfort following the procedure are minimized, and so is scarring. Less invasive procedures enable patients to resume their normal activities much more quickly.
Dr. Silver uses the laparascopic approach to diagnose and treat multiple conditions, including:
Laparoscopy is also frequently used to perform sterilization techniques such as tubal ligation or cauterization.
Most laparoscopic procedures are performed using sedation and local anesthetic. One of the benefits of laparoscopy is that it eliminates the risks associated with general anesthesia.
Because it's minimally invasive, laparoscopy results in much less discomfort than traditional surgical techniques. You may have some mild back ache or cramping caused by the gas used to help visualize the area during the procedure, but these effects resolve in a day or two. Any other mild discomfort will also resolve within a few days.
Most patients who undergo laparoscopy are able to return home within a few hours of the procedure. You'll need to rest for a few days to a week and avoid strenuous activity while you heal.
