Sheba Provides Low-Risk, Minimally-Invasive Laparoscopic Surgery Possibilities for Pregnant Women
In recent years, Sheba Medical Center has accumulated extensive experience in minimally invasive surgery, and doctors have been able to apply these techniques to women in advanced stages of pregnancy. The risk is low, the recovery period has been significantly shortened, and the resulting abdominal scar is much less noticeable.
“Laparoscopic surgery in these cases requires the highest level of technical skill. Also, the abdominal space is taken up by intestinal loops. Everyone has nine meters of bowel which are pushed upwards during pregnancy, making it more difficult to access the organs.”
