If you have a gynecologic condition that requires surgery, we offer a variety of minimally invasive surgery options designed to eliminate your pain, discomfort or embarrassment and get you back to your daily schedule as quickly as possible. Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center is even designated as a Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecology
In addition to traditional laparoscopic surgery
, which uses several small incisions in the abdomen and pelvis to insert cameras and surgical tools, we also offer state-of-the-art Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery™ (SILS) and robot-assisted minimally invasive surgery.
SILS is a revolutionary technique that enables our surgeons to perform a wide variety of gynecologic surgery procedures, including hysterectomies and treatments for pelvic pain, using just one very small incision in the belly button. The advantage is fewer incisions and a virtually scarless recovery.
Robot-assisted minimally invasive surgery, performed with the da Vinci Surgical System®
, uses robotic arms controlled by the surgeon to manipulate miniaturized instruments during surgery. This groundbreaking technology gives your doctor better visibility, dexterity, precision and control to more easily perform complex surgical procedures.
No matter which surgical method your doctor uses, our advanced minimally invasive gynecologic surgery options deliver smaller incisions and quicker recovery time
than traditional procedures. And all of our procedures are performed by highly-trained physicians who are experts in their field
