    Minimally invasive surgery for pelvic pain

    As specialists in their field, our surgeons can perform gynecologic procedures using minimally invasive approaches, such as laparoscopy and the daVinci robotically-assisted surgery system. This often results in:
  • Fewer complications and less risk of infection
  • Quicker recovery and return to normal activities (often 1-2 weeks instead of 6-8 weeks)
  • Shorter hospital stays (often one day instead of three)
  • Significantly less post-operative pain (over-the-counter pain medications often suffice)Smaller incisions, less scarring
