Gynecological Services

Our gynecologic surgeons are aided by the most advanced technology and experience. We offer minimally invasive surgery options for women facing common surgical needs.

Hysterectomy

Hysterectomy is the surgical removal of the uterus and is the second most common surgical procedure in the United States.

A wide variety of gynecological conditions are treated with hysterectomy:

  • Uterine fibroids (noncancerous tumors)   
  • Endometriosis (noncancerous growth of the uterine lining)   
  • Uterine prolapse (falling or slipping of the uterus)   
  • Cancer

Modern technology enables surgeons to perform hysterectomies with greater precision, dexterity and control through a few tiny surgical openings, 1-2 cm in length. Using this technology, surgeons can better visualize the anatomy, which is critical when working around delicate and confined structures. This less invasive approach minimizes the pain and risk associated with large incisions, while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery and quicker return to normal activities.

Potential patient benefits of minimally invasive hysterectomy procedures:

  • Shorter hospital stay   
  • Fewer complications   
  • Significantly less pain   
  • Less risk of wound infection   
  • Less blood loss   
  • Less scarring   
  • Faster recovery   
  • Quicker return to normal activities

Ovarian Surgery

Ovarian surgery may be necessary to diagnose problems such as ovarian cysts, adhesion's, fibroids, pelvic infection and ovarian cancer.
