People generally recover quicker after minimally invasive surgery than after traditional or open surgery. Compared to traditional surgery, minimally invasive gynecologic surgery is associated with less blood loss, less pain, and less disruption to your life. Women who have minimally invasive gynecologic surgery can often return to their usual activities in a week or two after surgery (as opposed to a recovery time of a month or more with traditional surgery).

The length of your stay will depend on the procedure you had performed, your overall health, and if you experience any complications.
