What is Minimally Invasive Gynecological Surgery (MIGS)?

MIGS uses small incisions and tools to perform a surgical procedure through small openings in the skin. The use of small incisions and specialized tools helps reduce bleeding and requires less overall recovery time after surgery.

At the Fertility Institute, we offer some MIGS procedures in-office. You’ll get the care you need with a team you know in an office you’re already familiar with. Since these procedures are minimally invasive, you can go home the same day and recover comfortably at home.

Types of MIGS Procedures

There are many types of MIGS procedures. Two of the most common are:


A laparoscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that uses a small incision to access organs in your pelvis or abdomen. A small camera, a laparoscope, is used to see inside your body and helps the surgeon visualize the area when performing surgery.


A hysteroscopy is a procedure that uses a small camera inserted through the vagina and cervix to view the interior of the uterus. This procedure is often used to diagnose and treat uterine issues, including the removal of scar tissue, heavy bleeding, and the removal of non-cancerous growths.

Hysteroscopies don’t require surgical incisions.
