Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery

The main goal of minimally invasive surgery is to avoid a large abdominal incision. Minimally invasive surgery involves fewer and smaller incisions than traditional open surgery and sometimes no incisions at all.

Using specialized instruments, our gynecological surgeons are able to achieve a great deal of precision for delicate procedures. This has several benefits for the patient, including:

  • Faster recovery
  • Less pain
  • Smaller incisions
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Easier return to normal activities
