Minimally Invasive Surgery

Alaska Women’s Health pioneered the outpatient hysterectomy in Alaska. This minimally invasive surgical approach has many benefits, including reduced risk of infection, the ability to recover at home and no hospital stay bills. When you have decided to stop growing your family, we are here to help.

Our expert gynecological surgeons specialize in four primary surgical techniques to treat a variety of issues from a laparoscopic hysterectomy to a reconstructive vaginal surgery.

These four techniques include the following:

Laparoscopy

This is a surgical technique that reduces tissue damage and dramatically decreases the chance of infection. During this type of procedure, your surgeon will make a few small cuts, and then a lighted probe is used to view the area in question. These cuts allow the insertion of surgical instruments to perform the necessary procedure.

Hysteroscopy

This is a lighted probe to view the inside of the uterus called a hysteroscope. This instrument allows your doctor to discover the causes of abnormal vaginal bleeding. A hysteroscopy can either be diagnostic or operative and is typically a very straightforward procedure. Your doctor will walk you through the entire process before your procedure.

Outpatient Hysteroscopy

This procedure is similar to the above, and is one where you can go home the same day afterward. Outpatient hysteroscopy is used for many reasons depending on your treatment needs. This procedure can be used for endometrial biopsy, polyp removal, small fibroid removal, and other uses. Ask your gynecologist about the benefits of outpatient hysteroscopy.

Cystoscopy

This is where your surgeon inserts a small tube called a cystoscope into your urethra. The scope is then slowly advanced into your bladder so your doctor can see the inside of it. This procedure helps your doctor determine the causes of concerns like frequent urinary tract infections. Cystoscopy can also be used to determine the causes of a wide range of other urinary tract issues.

Awesome bedside manner! I feel all my needs and concerns are well cared for by Dr. Moses. She takes her time with me. I appreciate that. My appointments have been first thing in the morning, so I haven’t ever had to wait to be seen. Nurses there are great too! Really positive experience. (My husband is a physician, I’m pretty picky and I keep my expectations high.)
