Gynecological Surgery Incisions
Vertical/Midline: This is an up and down incision from the pubic hair to the umbilicus (belly button). This may need to be extended above the umbilicus.
Pfannensteil: This incision goes across the lower abdomen just above the pubic hair similar to the incision used for a cesarean section.
Laparoscopic or DaVinci robotic surgery: This surgery uses small incisions and a camera to view the abdomen and operate.
