Dr. Joseph Sgroi is highly skilled in advanced laparoscopic gynecological surgery; otherwise known as keyhole surgery.
This procedure involves passing a surgical telescope through a small hole in the abdomen usually the umbilicus (bellybutton). Afterward, your belly button looks and feels like nothing has happened.
There may be three or four smaller incisions on the sides of the abdomen where instruments are passed to perform the surgery. These are usually a centimeter long. This results in very minimal pain, more rapid recovery and very small scars that often fade and are not noticeable several months later.
Laparoscopic surgery can be used to treat endometriosis ovarian cysts fibroids and when necessary the removal of the uterus (hysterectomy).
Endometriosis can be quite debilitating for women and Dr. Joseph Sgroi aims to help women live a productive and pain-free life through the combination of both medical and surgical treatments to alleviate the symptoms of endometriosis.
