We perform a wide range of complex surgeries to help correct issues like heavy bleeding, pelvic pain, infertility, vaginal wall prolapse and bladder issues. We also offer in-office minor procedures and vulvar cosmetic surgery.
Removal of the uterus is one of the most common female procedures performed in the United States for heavy uncontrolled bleeding, pelvic pain caused by endometriosis, fibroid tumors and precancerous endometrial lesions. We are pleased to say that 95% of our patients can have this procedure done with a minimally invasive approach. This allows our patients to go home the same day and recover in the comfort of their own home.
Fibroid tumors grow on the uterus and cause issues with heavy bleeding, pelvic pain or pressure and fertility issues. We specialize in removal of these tumors with the aid of the DaVinci Robot. Our patients are able to go home the same day and recovery time is usually 2-4 weeks depending on the size of the fibroids removed.
Ovarian cysts can interfere with fertility and sometimes they can grow so large that they cause pelvic pressure, pain and ovarian torsion which can lead to complete loss of the ovary. Many cysts can resolve on their own without intervention, however, when the cysts become too large, the only solution is surgery. We specialize in microsurgery where we will try to preserve your normal ovary and only remove the cyst. We work closely with our Gynecologic Oncology team to provide comprehensive care if your cyst is suspected to be cancerous.
Vaginal deliveries, heavy lifting, weak vaginal tissue and chronic constipation can lead to a condition called prolapse. This is when your organs (uterus, bladder, rectum and sometimes bowel) can herniate through the vaginal canal and cause changes in your anatomy that can interfere with sex, urination and having a bowel movement. We specialize in pelvic reconstructive surgery so that you can get your life back
No one likes to talk about this option but many women contemplate this issue. Are my labia too big? Am I embarrassed to wear tight clothes or a bathing suit for fear of being ridiculed? This is a very real problem and although I wish we lived in a society that embraced all our bulges, shapes and curves, the reality is that this can be very distressing for so many women. Labiaplasty or reduction of the labia is considered a cosmetic procedure and therefore is not covered by insurance. We try to minimize the cost by performing this procedure in our office under local anesthesia. Recovery is about 4 weeks.
