Minimally Invasive and Robotic-Assisted Surgery
We offer a full range of gynecologic surgical procedures, including minimally invasive techniques and robotic surgery. We provide complete care for women with abnormal bleeding, fibroids, ovarian conditions, cervical conditions and other common gynecologic disorders.
Hysteroscopy is an outpatient procedure used to diagnose or treat problems of the uterus. It is performed using a thin, lighted telescope-like device inserted through the vagina into the uterus. It is used for:
- Removal of fibroids to treat both abnormal uterine bleeding and infertility.
- Removal of endometrial polyps, benign tumors that grow in the lining of the uterus.
- Endometrial ablation, a procedure used to treat heavy or abnormal uterine bleeding.
- Diagnosis of pelvic pain.
Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive surgery that uses a thin tube that is inserted through a keyhole incision in the abdomen or pelvis to perform operations that used to require large incisions. Recovery times are shorter and patients usually have less pain with laparoscopic surgery. It is used for less complex tubal and ovarian conditions.
Vaginal hysterectomy is used to treat a variety of gynecologic conditions, including:
- Precancerous lesions of the uterus and cervix
- Uterine prolapse, a condition in which supporting tissues and ligaments in the pelvis get stretched out or become weak, causing urinary incontinence, pelvic pressure and abnormal bleeding due to small fibroids or adenomyosis.
- Endometrial hyperplasia
- Carcinoma in situ of the cervix
- Abnormal bleeding
- Chronic pelvic pain
Bladder sling procedures - These are minimally invasive surgical procedures used to treat stress incontinence.
