Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery

The Division of Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery provides comprehensive care for women with conditions including uterine fibroids, abnormal uterine bleeding, pelvic pain, endometriosis, pelvic organ prolapse, cervical incompetence and ovarian cysts – offering the latest minimally invasive options for these conditions.

We strive to provide a safer and more effective alternative to traditional open surgery by performing the vast majority of our procedures via laparoscopy or hysteroscopy. We get referrals from other providers for complicated cases that would otherwise be performed via a large abdominal incision. We are leaders in developing innovative minimally invasive procedures that offer our patients:

  • Faster recovery
  • Less pain
  • Smaller incisions
  • Early return to normal daily activities
  • Shorter hospital stay
