Women's Health Services | Minimally Invasive/Robotic Surgery

Minimally invasive surgery, including robotic surgery, is a treatment for many women’s health conditions like uterine fibroids, abnormal uterine bleeding, pelvic pain, endometriosis, pelvic organ prolapse and ovarian cysts.

Robotic HysterectomyIt is often a safer and more preferred surgical option than traditional open surgery. In minimally invasive surgery, surgeons make smaller and fewer incisions and use small instruments with a camera that gives a clear view of the procedure. This is unlike open surgery, which requires a much larger incision.

Patients typically benefit in a number of ways:

  • Faster recovery
  • Less pain
  • Less scarring
  • Decreased blood loss
  • Smaller incisions
  • Earlier return to normal daily activities
  • Shorter hospital stay
