Minimally Invasive Surgery
At New England Center for Pelvic Health, we take a minimally invasive approach to surgery whenever possible. Using Laparoscopic techniques causes less pain, less bleeding, and less risk of infection. In most cases, patients are treated in outpatient surgeries and are back to routine activities within a very short time.
Our approach is designed to reduce the likelihood of recurring surgeries. Carefully listening to each patient’s history, we gain valuable information regarding the source and location of the pain, and this assists and guides Dr. Lucas at the time of surgery. In many clinical situations, there may be more than one way to approach the situation. As long as we are within the standard of care, Dr. Lucas always tries to take the patient’s wishes into account. When a patient is under anesthesia, Dr. Lucas follows the plan and understandings that the patient and he had in the office, unless findings at the time of surgery necessitate unplanned intervention. In all cases, Dr. Lucas reviews in detail the surgery findings and performance with you and your family member
