Gynecologic surgery can diagnose and treat a variety of non-cancerous conditions in your reproductive system. At Geisinger, we use the most advanced minimally invasive procedures whenever possible.
What you should know about gynecologic surgery:
- We can treat fibroids, ovarian cysts and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) with surgery.
- We can also use gynecologic surgery to diagnose and treat certain fertility issues, such as blocked fallopian tubes and endometriosis. We can reverse a tubal litigation, which prevents a woman from becoming pregnant.
Why choose Geisinger for your gynecologic surgery?
- Specially trained surgeons: The doctors on our gynecologic surgery team are highly experienced performing both open and minimally invasive surgeries. Team members passed rigorous national exams (board certification) and include:
- Advanced minimally invasive procedures: Our specialists perform the latest minimally invasive gynecologic procedures. They use these procedures to both diagnose and treat gynecologic conditions. Procedures include:
- Laparoscopy: A provider inserts a small instrument, called a laparoscope, through a small incision. A camera on the end of the laparoscope helps doctors perform surgeries inside your body.
- Robot-assisted: Our surgeons use the da Vinci®, a robotic system that helps them perform complex surgeries with more precision.
- Hysteroscopy: A surgeon inserts a small tube, called a hysteroscope, through the vagina and into the uterus. Small instruments can be inserted through the tube to diagnose and treat gynecologic issues.
- Coordinated care: Your OB/GYN and gynecologic surgeon work collaboratively to determine the right treatment for each gynecologic condition. They may recommend medication, surgery or a combination of both to help relieve pain and symptoms.
