Our Approach
Complex Gynecologic Issues: Surgery and Treatment

A variety of conditions may affect a woman’s uterus, vagina, ovaries and fallopian tubes over the course of her life. Common types of gynecologic conditions - such as fibroids, endometriosis, and pelvic organ prolapse - can cause significant problems and impact the lives of women. We address these, however, we don’t loose sight of routine gynecologic care as well. After all, an ounce of prevention is always more than a pound of cure.

Our innovative and comprehensive treatment programs start with an accurate diagnosis. Our care plans are attentive to our patients' emotional, educational and physical needs. Where surgery is required, the most advanced and least invasive procedures will be used.
