The Usage Area of Endoscopic Surgery in Gynecology is Expanding

Endoscopic surgery, which is described as closed operations, is also used extensively in gynecological diseases. Gynecology and Obstetrics Specialist Prof. Dr. Gazi Yıldırım said that closed operations are preferred with patients because they have more advantages compared to open surgeries and provide more comfort for the patients as well.

Closed methods are used in many problems and treatments, from fibroids, which are very common among women, to cancers of female reproductive organs, from ovarian cysts to infertility treatment. Moreover, the advantages of these procedures make closed operations the primary preference in the treatment of problems that require surgical intervention.

According to the information provided by Prof. Dr. Gazi YıldırımYeditepe University Kozyatağı Hospital Gynecology and Obstetrics Specialist, endoscopic surgeries in women are generally divided into two categories as laparoscopy and hysteroscopy.
