For women with a gynecologic condition, the decision to have surgery can be difficult. A woman’s busy life does not leave much time to recover from a significant surgical procedure.
At UTMB Health, our physicians are skilled in caring for women with co-existing medical conditions, a history of prior surgery or a history of congenital malformations of the reproductive organs. Using advanced techniques, our surgeons can diagnose or treat patients, and remove or repair a part of the body, without performing a major incision during surgery. The addition of robotics to laparascopic minimally invasive surgery is a progressive innovation, transforming the practice of gynecologic surgery.
Less Invasive Surgery, Quicker Recovery
We’re using new techniques in minimally invasive and robotic-assisted surgery and, in turn, shortening recovery times, reducing pain and blood loss and letting women get back to their lives in record time.
Robotic and minimally invasive surgery can be used to treat:
- Bladder and pelvic floor disorders
- Cervical cancer
- Uterine cancer
- Excessive bleeding
- Ovarian cysts
- Pelvic pain
- Uterine fibroids
