Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery

We offer minimally invasive gynecological surgery services to diagnose and treat a variety of gynecologic conditions. Endometrial ablation, treatment for endometriosis, and alternatives to hysterectomy are also available.

A hysteroscopy is a surgical procedure where the inside of the uterus is viewed through a narrow telescope allowing for the evaluation of the uterine lining, endometrial polyps or fibroids, and congenital defects of the uterus and cervix.

An operative laparoscopy involves lighted scopes that evaluate the pelvic organs for fibroids, pelvic scar tissue and endometriosis. These minimally invasive procedures treat a wide number of conditions including pelvic pain, fibroid tumors, ovarian cysts, urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, fistulae and pelvic floor dysfunction.

Our physicians offer endometrial ablation to treat excessive menstrual bleeding. Approximately 30 percent of surveyed women report having abnormally heavy periods, bleeding that disrupts a woman's ability to enjoy normal activities.

Endometrial ablation is a procedure in which the majority of the lining of the uterus is permanently destroyed. Ablations are done without any incisions and are outpatient or office-based procedures. Patient satisfaction with this procedure in reducing bleeding is approximately 90 percent.
