Destruction of the uterine lining using heat to treat heavy, disruptive periods. Quick 2 minute outpatient procedure, no incisions, rapid recovery.
Minimally invasive laparoscopic treatment of ovarian cysts, endometriosis, pelvic pain, or for permanent sterilization.
Robotic-assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy
Total laparoscopic hysterectomy is performed in a minimally invasive fashion using robotic-assistance allowing shorter hospital stay, less pain & scarring, less blood loss, faster recovery.
