Non-surgical Treatments for Common Conditions

Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery

Minimally invasive surgical procedures may be the best option to remove growths from the uterus, treat abnormal bleeding or fertility problems or repair pelvic floor muscles. Inova's team of world-class physicians performs more minimally invasive gynecologic procedures than any other healthcare provider in the Washington, DC region. Minimally invasive gynecologic surgeries include:

  • Laparoscopic surgery (laparoscopy): Allows a surgeon to remove tissue through a very small incision. Smaller incisions result in less blood loss, lower risk of transfusion, a shorter hospital stay, less need for pain medication, and a quicker recovery.
  • da Vinci® robotic assisted surgery: The surgical tools inserted into the patient via laparoscopy are connected to robotic arms that are fully controlled by the surgeon, resulting in unsurpassed precision.
  • Operative hysteroscopy: In this procedure, the surgeon guides a lighted tube (called a hysteroscope) through the cervix into the uterus to find and treat problems.
