Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery | Dr. Laurence Orbuch
Dr. Laurence Orbuch is an expert in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery and specializes in evaluating and treating women who have a wide range of noncancerous (benign) gynecologic conditions, including heavy menstrual periods (menorrhagia), irregular menstrual periods (metrorrhagia), pelvic pain, endometriosis, myomas (fibroids) and ovarian cysts.
The landscape of gynecological surgery has evolved rapidly in recent years. New surgical and non-surgical options are emerging for a variety of gynecological conditions, with major emphasis on minimally invasive and non-invasive options.
The main goal of minimally invasive surgery is to avoid a large abdominal incision. This has several benefits to the patient, which include:
- faster and easier recovery time
- less pain
- less blood loss
- decreased scar tissue formation
Innovative treatment options
Dr. Orbuch will discuss the full range of options with you about a range of innovative treatment options and develop an individualized treatment plan that may involve one of these minimally invasive gynecologic approaches:
This technique does not require any incisions and has minimal recovery time.
Advanced laparoscopic surgery
This technique has been shown to be an effective treatment that results in shorter hospital stays, less discomfort and a shorter recovery period.
da Vinci Robotic surgery
This approach has the same advantages as advanced laparoscopy, and it allows surgeons to operate with increased precision and accuracy while minimizing trauma to surrounding tissues.

The da Vinci Surgical System enables surgeons to perform operations through a few small incisions and features several key features, including:
- Magnified vision system that gives surgeons a 3D HD view inside the patient’s body
- Ergonomically designed console where the surgeon sits while operating
- Patient-side cart where the patient is positioned during surgery
- Wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human hand
