One of the main priorities for Dr. Zann is to provide a safer alternative to traditional open surgery by using a minimally invasive approach when indicated and whenever possible based on the disease we are treating, the patients’ anatomy, and the patients’ overall medical condition. We focus on faster recoveries, less pain, minimal incisions, early return to normal activities and prevent risks of infections.
Recovery after minimally invasive hysterectomy is far less complicated than traditional surgical hysterectomies. Most women can go home the same day as their procedures, making a near-complete recovery in just days instead of weeks. Because the incision site is so small, there is very little risk of infection or other complications following the operation.
The gynecology specialty covers conditions of the internal female reproductive system, which includes the uterus (womb), ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix, and vagina. When your reproductive system develops a problem, it can affect many aspects of your health and quality of life. Gynecologic conditions such as severe pelvic pain, endometriosis, fibroids, abnormal bleeding, pelvic organ prolapse, and cancer are common and may require medical care. When lifestyle changes, medicine, and other options do not ease your symptoms, surgery may be recommended.
