Minimally Invasive Surgery For Pelvic Pain

As specialists in their field, our surgeons can perform gynecologic procedures using minimally invasive approaches, such as laparoscopy or daVinci robot, which can result in:

  • Shorter hospital stay (one day in most cases versus 3-5)
  • Significantly less post-operative pain (often only over-the-counter pain meds are required)
  • Quicker recovery and return to normal activities (1-2 weeks versus 6-8 weeks)
  • Fewer complications and less risk of infection
  • Less scarring (small, dime-sized incisions versus a 6-8 inch scar)

Advanced Pelvic Pain Care

Our institution provides world-class care and pelvic pain treatment. We are one of only three in the United States that performs surgical decompression of injured pudendal nerves, and patients from all over North America come to St. Joseph’s to have this surgery done. We are also one of the few institutions in the country to perform a laparoscopic Vecchietti procedure.

Our pelvic pain surgeons specialize in treating conditions such as:

  • Endometriosis
  • Interstitial cystitis
  • Pelvic congestion syndrome
  • Pelvic floor tension myalgia

Teaching Tomorrow's Doctors

Our division is a highly respected fellowship training site for minimally invasive gynecologic surgery. Our fellowship is one of 18 accredited by the American Academy of Gynecologic Laparoscopists.
