Our approach to gynecologic surgery
In 2010, our advanced gynecologic surgeons performed minimally invasive procedures in 99% of the women who required surgical management of their gynecologic or urogynecologic condition. The vast majority of our women have surgery as outpatients or require less than a 23 hour stay in the hospital.
Minimally invasive surgery means less pain, less risk of infection and faster recovery, getting you back to good health and to your family, work, and your regular activities quickly.
Minimally invasive surgery used whenever possible to treat:
Types of minimally invasive surgery:
- vaginal surgery
- laparoscopic surgery
- robotic (DaVinci) surgery
