When your doctor suggests a hysterectomy, the most common ways to remove your uterus are: open surgery and minimally invasive surgery (traditional laparoscopy or robotically-assisted da Vinci Surgery).
A big benefit of the da Vinci single-site surgery, for benign conditions (not cancer), includes almost scarless results, like a single incision traditional laparoscopy; the surgeon operates through a small cut in your belly button.
Other benefits, found by early clinical data, includes low blood loss, low rate of complications, short hospital stay, and low level of post-operative pain.
How does heavy menstrual bleeding effect women? Let’s start with the basic facts first; 1 in 5 women suffer from heavy menstrual bleeding. Many women begin to experience heavy and/or irregular bleeding in their 30’s and 40’s, as they begin to get closer to menopause. Studies show that heavy menstrual bleeding can affect women in physical, social and emotional ways including feeling nauseated, being unable to attend events or work and feeling depressed or moody. Visit our heavy menstrual bleeding page for more information on this topic.

Some patients may not have had the chance to learn about what The da Vinci System does and how it operates. This system is powered by robotic technology allows the surgeon’s hand movements to be translated into smaller, precise movements of tiny instruments inside the patient’s body. The camera sends images to a video monitor in the operating room to guide doctors during surgery and the surgeon is 100% in control of the da Vinci System at all times.
The da Vinci System has brought minimally invasive surgery to more than 3 million patients worldwide. Some surgeries it is used for includes cardiac, head and neck, colorectal, gynecologic, thoracic, urologic and more.

We are excited to announce the launch of our new website where you can find more information about the doctor, procedures and areas of expertise. In order to provide convenience and efficiency, we created a patient portal for existing patients. In this portal, you will be able to manage your insurance information, send messages to our clinical staff, manage appointments, review lab results, pay your bill and request a prescription refill.
