PROCEDURE

For various treatments, procedures are unavoidable.  Patients of Dr. Turner can have the peace of mind and confidence that, if required, medical procedures are performed effectively and properly, given Dr. Turner’s decades of experience performing these procedures.  Common procedures Dr. Turner performs on an in-patient or out-patient basis include:

‚Äč

Bandaid Hysterectomy - A effective surgical procedure that utilizes a laparoscope (a thin, lighted tube inserted through an incision) to magnify the clinician’s view of the uterus and surrounding organs when removing the uterus.  This procedure offers an effective alternative to traditional abdominal surgery for women who need a hysterectomy while avoiding the large incisions or scarring that accompany it.  Because of the minimally invasive technique, bandaid hysterectomy has many benefits:

  • Smaller incisions and scarring

  • Faster recovery times

  • Quicker return to work and other activities

  • Less pain after surgery and reduced need for pain medication

  • Appetite and normal bowel function returns quicker

 

Robotic Surgery – As an alternative to traditional surgery, Dr. Turner offers minimally-invasive robotic surgery using the Davinci Robot Assisted Technique for women who may need a hysterectomy or the removal of fibroids,.  Robotic surgery is very precise and performs complex surgery, using a minimally-invasive approach and multiple benefits:

  • Reduces recovery times by half

  • You can usually go home the next day

  • Pain and discomfort during recovery is significantly reduced

  • Very small incisions and less scarring

  • Quicker return to work and other activities

  • Less pain after surgery and reduced need for pain medication

  • Appetite and normal bowel function returns quicker

  • Reduced risk of complications

 

Tubal Ligation - Tubal ligation (also called getting “tubes tied”) is a form of female sterilization where the fallopian tubes are severed and sealed or “pinched shut” in order to prevent fertilization or conception.  After consulting patients on their family planning goals, this procedure will be safely performed with adequate analgesia to help the patient remain comfortable throughout the procedure.

 

Fibroid Diagnosis and Treatment – With diagnosis, often during a routine pelvic exam, Dr.Turner can treat fibroids medically with hormone treatment or, if necessary, surgically as an in-patient or in-office procedure depending on the characteristics and number of

fibroid present.
