Women's Health Treatments
We offer a number of less invasive surgical procedures for gynecologic conditions. These procedures only require small incisions (if any). This means less discomfort, reduced risk of infection and faster return to normal activities.
- Focused ultrasound for uterine fibroids (small, benign tumors). This technique uses multiple waves of ultrasound to deliver targeted treatment with no anesthesia and little discomfort.
- Hysterectomy, for uterine fibroids or other conditions that require removal of the uterus.
- Essure, a non-surgical, permanent birth control technique. The surgeon inserts small titanium coils through the vagina and cervix, implanting them into the fallopian tubes. During the next three months, body tissue grows around the inserts, resulting in the tubes becoming permanently blocked, preventing future pregnancies.
- Hysteroscopy to remove fibroids and polyps or to treat heavy menstrual bleeding. By inserting a thin, lighted tube (hysteroscope) through the cervix and into the uterus, the surgeon can use very thin surgical instruments to perform procedures that may prevent removal of the uterus.

Hormone Replacement Therapy
HRT can ease menopausal symptoms and reduce the risk of osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease and other age-specific conditions. Treatment can involve estrogen and progesterone, either independently or combined.
Learn how to maintain your estrogen levels with hormone replacement therapy.
Pelvic Floor Disorder Procedures
We also offer these advanced techniques:
- Advanced laparoscopy for pelvic floor support procedures, removal of uterine fibroids and polyps, lymph node dissections and hysterectomies. Surgeons will insert a thin, lighted tube through a tiny incision in the abdomen, which allows them to view the pelvic area.
- Robotic surgery for repair of pelvic floor disorders, hysterectomy, fibroid removal and gynecologic cancer treatment. Surgeons use the da Vinci Robotic Surgery® technique, which uses tiny robotic hands and 3D imaging to ensure greater precision.
