Dr. Naghmeh S. Saberi is an expert in minimally invasive treatments for gynecological conditions
December 01, 2012
Surgery without large, open incisions is a proven advancement offered at UC Irvine,
where women may have many treatment options when they face gynecologic
conditions such as uterine fibroids, endometriosis and ovarian cysts.
The term for such procedures is “minimally invasive surgery,” or MIS. It includes a
variety of techniques to surgically treat patients without subjecting them
to traditional open procedures that involve more risks, larger scars and
longer recovery times. MIS usually involves inserting instruments through
small incisions in the skin, guided by a tiny camera called a laparoscope.
“The benefits of minimally invasive surgery are enormous,” says Dr. Naghmeh S.Saberi, assistant clinical professor in UC Irvine’s Department of Obstetrics
and Gynecology with special training in MIS. “It decreases the time the patient
is in the hospital, recovery time is much faster, there is no large incision
to heal or major scars, and patients can return to work or their normal
lifestyle more quickly.”
UC Irvine Health is emerging as a leader in minimally invasive gynecologic
surgery. Our physicians have undergone significant additional training and
experience to become skilled in MIS and yield positive outcomes. UC Irvine
Medical Center also invests in state-of-the-art surgical instruments and
technology, including robotic surgical systems.
