When medication and non-invasive procedures are unable to relieve symptoms, surgery remains the accepted and most effective treatment for a range of gynecologic conditions. These conditions may include:

  • cervical and uterine cancer
  • uterine fibroids
  • endometriosis
  • uterine prolapse
  • menorrhagia or excessive bleeding

Traditional gynecologic surgery uses a large incision. This type of open surgery may cause significant pain, trauma, and a long recovery period.

Less Invasive
