  • Hysterectomy is an operation to remove a woman’s uterus. The doctor may also remove the fallopian tubes and ovaries, depending on a woman's health needs.
  • During a laparoscopic procedure, a surgeon makes small incisions in the abdomen to insert a scope (a small, thin tube fitted with a camera) and other surgical tools. Surgeons use laparoscopy to diagnose and treat many conditions.
  • Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery

    Pelvic reconstructive surgery is a way to repair the pelvic floor, a sling of muscles and other tissues that support the bladder, uterus and other organs. The purpose of pelvic reconstructive surgery is usually to correct pelvic organ prolapse, which occurs when one of these organs bulges into the anus or vagina.
  • Robotic surgery is a minimally invasive technique that surgeons use. The technique allows for smaller incisions and more precise movements during surgery, which benefits patients.
