Surgical and Medical Gynecology Clinic
When you are facing a gynecological condition, the symptoms can impact your day-to-day life. Medication and non-invasive treatments help many women experiencing a gynecologic issue, but if they don’t, surgery is often a good option.
At our Surgery and Medical Gynecology Clinic, we offer state-of-the-art robotic and minimally invasive surgery for a wide range of conditions, including heavy menstrual periods, endometriosis, uterine fibroids and cervical and uterine cancer.
At Providence, we treat many gynecological conditions, including:
- Cervical cancer
- Heavy menstrual periods
- Irregular menstrual periods
- Ovarian cancer
- Pelvic organ prolapse
- Pelvic pain
- Polycystic ovary syndrome
- Uterine cancer
- Uterine fibroids
- Uterine prolapse
To diagnose gynecological issues, we use advanced imaging technologies, including:
- Ultrasound X-ray
Surgery does not have to interrupt your life with a long recovery or leave you with noticeable scarring. Depending on your condition, we may treat you with traditional surgery techniques or minimally invasive options, such as laparoscopic or robotic surgery.
Doctors use minimally invasive robotic surgery for many purposes, including:
- Cancer staging
- Ovarian cyst removal
- Treatment of endometriosis
- Treatment of gynecological cancers
- Tumor removal
- Uterine fibroid removal
- Vaginal prolapse repair
Benefits of minimally invasive surgery include:
- Faster recovery time
- Less bleeding and pain
- Shorter hospital stays
In some cases, minimally invasive robotic surgery allows doctors to preserve a woman’s fertility while treating a gynecologic condition, such as fibroids or cancer.
If you are a candidate for robotic surgery, your doctor may use our da Vinci™ Surgical System. The da Vinci robot enables surgeons to perform with great precision and control, using a few small incisions rather than one large one.
Depending on your condition, your care team may include:
- Gynecological oncologist
- Interventional radiologists
