Gynecology Procedures & Surgeries
- Minimally Invasive Surgery — We practice minimally invasive surgery for many of our gynecologic procedures. This often involves robotic technology and ensures that your surgery is as non-invasive to your body as possible.
- Advanced Laparoscopic Hysterectomy — A hysterectomy, which is when the uterus is removed, can be performed as painlessly as possible with an advanced laparoscopic hysterectomy. Advanced laparoscopic hysterectomy largely prevents scarring, tissue damage, and loss of blood.
- Hysteroscopy — This is where a thin tube with a camera attached is used to look inside the uterus. It is performed when issues are detected or suspected of going on in the uterine system.
- Pelvic Organ Prolapsed Repair — When a pelvic organ has collapsed, you might have the following symptoms: hard to pass bowel movements, a painful feeling in the pelvis, among others. If your symptoms are severe and non-surgical treatments haven’t worked, surgery is often necessary. We perform repairs to your pelvic organ that will help.
- Incontinence Surgery — Urinary incontinence can come from a variety of factors, and there are various methods to help, including bladder sling. Diagnoses of what your incontinence stems from can help determine which surgery is best for you.
- Colposcopy — If your PAP test comes back with irregular results, a colposcopy can be performed to determine cancer or cervical diseases. An instrument called a colposcope is used to examine your cervix and nearby areas.
- LEEP — If cancer is detected in the tissue of your cervix, then a procedure known as a loop electrosurgical excision procedure can be performed. This is where a thin wire curled in a loop is used surgically to remove the diseased tissue with an electric current.
- Endometrial Biopsy — If you are suspected of having endometrial cancer, an endometrial biopsy, or taking of a sample of the diseased tissue, will be performed to determine whether you have cancer or not.
Other Gynecology Services Offered
