If your physician recommends a hysterectomy, you may be a candidate for a less invasive procedure called da Vinci™ Hysterectomy. This procedure uses a state-of-the-art surgical system designed to help your surgeon perform a more precise, minimally invasive surgical procedure.
Uterine Fibroid Embolization
Uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) is a proven, non-surgical alternative to hysterectomy and myomectomy (for the treatment of fibroids). The benefits of a UFE procedure are vast.
Chronic Pelvic Pain / Ovarian Varicose Veins
It is estimated that one-third of all women will experience chronic pelvic pain in their lifetime. Many of these women are told the problem is "all in their head" but recent advancements now show the pain may be due to hard to detect varicose veins in the pelvis, known as pelvic congestion syndrome.
