Gynecologic Surgery Excellence Award 2017

UC San Diego Health is the recipient of the Gynecologic Surgery Excellence Award which recognizes hospitals for superior outcomes in surgeries that treat diseases and conditions of the female reproductive system.

​Gynecological surgery refers to surgery on the female reproductive system, such as the ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus, vagina, and vulva. Our gynecological surgeons have expertise in the following areas:

Minimally Invasive Gynecological 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, and an easier return to normal activities.
