Reproductive endocrinologists have traditionally been pioneers of minimally invasive reproductive and gynecologic surgery, with the ultimate goal of restoring normal anatomy in the gentlest manner possible in order to maximize chance of healthy pregnancy.
Research and development in this field has had a drastic impact on the physical and emotional burden of infertility patients and contributed to an improvement on overall quality of life. The application of hysteroscopic, laparoscopic and robotic surgery techniques have led to faster recoveries, less surgical risk and complications and improved reproductive outcomes.
As minimally invasive techniques become the mainstay of surgical approach, technological advancements are being explored to increase ease, accessibility and cost-effectiveness. In addition, who, what and when to operate remain the cornerstones of surgical investigation.
