Surgery Q & A

Why do I need gynecological surgery?

There are a variety of common issues that Dr. Swor can treat using the latest surgical techniques. You may require surgery for conditions like:

  • Incontinence
  • Endometriosis
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Pelvic floor prolapse

Dr. Swor also offers minimally invasive tubal ligations and hysterectomies, using low-impact laparoscopic surgical techniques that require minimal incisions for a faster recovery.

If you are looking for a second opinion about a gynecological surgery recommendation, Dr. Swor can review your medical history and current condition to determine if surgery is, in fact, necessary.

How do I prepare for gynecological surgery?

Swor Women’s Care arranges all necessary pre-surgery tests for your convenience, including blood work and ultrasounds. If your surgery requires a hospital stay, the staff coordinates care with one of Sarasota’s leading hospitals or surgical centers, including:

  • Sarasota Memorial Hospital
  • Cape Surgery Center
  • Doctors Hospital of Sarasota
  • Doctors Same Day Surgery Center

During your surgical consultation, Dr. Swor provides you with all the information you need to get you ready for surgery, including limiting food and drinks in the hours before surgery.

Dr. Swor creates a custom treatment plan based on your specific health issues to determine the best type of surgery to treat your condition. He may use low-impact or robotic surgical techniques, both of which offer a range of benefits over traditional surgeries.

What are the benefits of low-impact laparoscopic and robotic surgery?

Both laparoscopic and robotic surgical techniques require only small incisions to access the treatment area. Smaller incisions mean less trauma to your body and a faster recovery period than is possible with open surgery.

Robotic surgery is also beneficial if you need complex surgery. Dr. Swor uses the innovative da Vinci system to perform complicated surgeries with more precision.

Robotic surgery involves the use of a camera attached to small surgical instruments that fit through tiny incisions near the treatment area. The camera sends high-definition images to an external monitor that Dr. Swor views throughout the procedure. He uses robotic arms attached to a computer to control the instruments internally, making necessary repairs.

Other benefits of laparoscopic and robotic surgery include:

  • Less pain
  • Less bleeding
  • Minimal surgical scars
  • Reduced risk of infection
  • Shorter hospital stay

Dr. Swor can determine if laparoscopic or robotic surgery is right for you during your consultation.
