Gynecological cancer care

Gynecological oncology includes the diagnosis and treatment of gynecological cancers, such as ovarian, cervical and uterine cancers. If gynecological cancer is detected, we provide advanced treatments, personalized support and helpful resources throughout your journey to recovery.

Pelvic floor disorder care

Pelvic floor disorders occur when the sling-like collection of muscles and tissues that supports pelvic organs becomes weakened or damaged. These changes may be caused by a variety of factors, such as aging, a chronic cough, obesity or pregnancy and childbirth.

If the pelvic floor is weak, your pelvic organs may drop out of their normal positions (pelvic organ prolapse), causing symptoms such as incontinence or a heavy feeling in the vagina.

Reproductive health care

Whether you are interested in infertility treatment or other reproductive health care services, we are here to support you through open conversation and a personalized treatment plan.

Gynecologic surgery

Sometimes surgery is the most effective treatment for a gynecologic condition. In these cases, we provide patient-centered surgical care, and we have access to advanced surgical technology, including minimally invasive robotic surgery, which can often result in shorter hospital stays, less scarring and faster recoveries.

Gynecological procedures and surgeries

Our providers will always strive to treat your condition and restore your quality of life with noninvasive techniques. However, sometimes a procedure may be necessary to learn more about your condition or to treat it.

Some examples of gynecological procedures and surgeries include:

  • Cystoscopy — This endoscopic procedure of the bladder allows your doctor to view your bladder and ureter. It may be used to better understand bladder function.
  • Endometrial ablation — This procedure surgically destroys the lining of the uterus without the need for incisions. It is performed to address abnormal uterine bleeding and/or heavy bleeding during periods.
  • Hysterectomy — A hysterectomy involves the surgical removal of the uterus and/or other reproductive organs to treat endometriosis, prolapse and cancerous and noncancerous tumors.
  • Myomectomy — This procedure is performed to surgically remove uterine fibroids.
  • Oophorectomy — An oophorectomy involves removing one or both ovaries to treat conditions such as ovarian cancer and endometriosis.
  • Sacrocolpopexy — This surgical procedure corrects uterine or vaginal vault prolapse by using synthetic mesh to put the prolapsed organ back in the proper position.
  • Tubal ligation — This surgical procedure is performed to prevent pregnancy. Sometimes called female sterilization or "getting your tubes tied," tubal ligation prevents an egg from being fertilized by sperm and traveling through the Fallopian tubes to the uterus
  • Uterine fibroid embolization — This minimally invasive procedure is an alternative to surgically removing fibroids with a myomectomy. During embolization, your doctor uses a catheter to inject agents into the uterine blood vessels. The goal is to block blood flow to the fibroids, causing them to shrink and die.

 

Minimally invasive gynecological surgery
If gynecological surgery is necessary, we use minimally invasive techniques, such as laparoscopy or robotic surgery, whenever possible. Minimally invasive surgery offers many benefits to patients, as it is performed through very small incisions. This typically results in less postoperative pain, less scarring and a shorter recovery. 
 
Often, we are able to perform minimally invasive surgery to treat bladder problems, prolapse, endometriosis, PCOS and other gynecological conditions. We can also use this type of advanced surgery to perform vaginal reconstruction.

 

Traditional vs. minimally invasive gynecological surgery
In some cases, minimally invasive surgery is not a good fit for a patient, and traditional open surgery is the preferred method of treatment. For example, if the uterus is enlarged due to cancer or something else, a traditional hysterectomy may be necessary. This type of surgery would require a 6-12 inch incision along the abdomen. 
 
Your doctor will talk to you about your unique condition and whether minimally invasive surgery is an effective treatment option.
