Minimally Invasive Surgery

At About Women Ob-Gyn, our clinical team includes physicians trained in the latest minimally invasive techniques for performing virtually any form of gynecological surgery you may need during your lifetime—including state-of-the-art da Vinci Robotic and laparoscopic surgeries. The benefits of minimally invasive surgeries include:

  • Smaller incisions or no incision
  • Less pain
  • Shorter procedure time
  • Faster recovery
  • Shorter hospital stay or no hospital stay

For the convenience of our patients, About Women Ob-Gyn is pleased to be able to offer some surgical procedures at our office in Woodbridge, saving you the additional time a hospital visit can sometimes consume due to factors like parking, administrative processes, navigation and wait times.

If you need surgery, your physician will decide whether your procedure can be performed at our office. Certain factors in your specific medical situation may make it necessary to have your procedure in the hospital.

Among the minimally invasive gynecological procedures that our physician team performs are:

  • Minimally Invasive Gynecological Surgery—For a variety of conditions and diseases, including endometriosis, heavy periods, and pelvic prolapse.
  • Surgery for Endometriosis—A condition, frequently very painful, in which the type of tissue that normally lines the uterus appears outside the uterus.
  • Surgery for Pelvic Prolapse—A condition that sometimes occurs after childbirth or at other times in which pelvic organs such as the bladder, urethra, uterus, small bowel, or rectum may drop out of normal position, causing pain, discomfort, or other undesirable effects. Surgical treatment options include a robotic-assisted procedure called da Vinci Sacrocolpopexy for uterine or vaginal vault prolapse.
  • MyoSure®—Removal of uterine fibroids or polyps without the need to cut or remove any part of the uterus.
  • Essure®—A permanent birth control solution for women who do not want to have any more children. See our Essure page for details.
  • NovaSure®—A fast, effective treatment for heavy bleeding (menorrhagia) in women who do not plan to become pregnant in the future. See our NovaSure page for details.
