The finesse, precision, and accuracy of microsurgery is much like the act of a hummingbird delicately pollinating a flower blossom while leaving all else untouched. The task of the microsurgeon is to restore function while avoiding damage to the surrounding tissues.
Dr. Koh specializes in minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery, surgery that utilizes small “keyhole” or “Band Aid” incisions instead of the large incision with conventional open surgery.
Minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery has revolutionized many areas of modern day medicine, including gynecology, by reducing scarring and discomfort, and hastening recovery times.
The hummingbird; the pioneer of fertility microsurgery!
Laparoscopic surgery also affords the surgeon superior illumination and magnification of the surgical field, which is of vital importance when treating gynecologic conditions such as endometriosis and performing delicate fertility-preserving procedures on the fallopian tubes.
‘I suffered from endometriosis that had invaded my bladder and caused me severe pain. Other surgeons wanted to remove my ovaries and do radical surgery. I met with Dr. Koh and he assured me I could keep my ovaries and performed the surgery laparoscopically! Thank you Dr. Koh for giving me hope and my life back!’ Read Anna’s Story
