A woman might need surgery to treat a number of gynecologic conditions, including fibroids, endometriosis, ovarian cysts, uterine prolapse and gynecologic cancer. Sometimes surgery is used to remedy pelvic pain or abnormal menstrual periods.
The gynecologists at Sinai and Northwest hospitals can help. Many of them have special training to use minimally invasive techniques that involve only a few, small surgical incisions. In addition to hysterectomy in which the uterus is removed, doctors can perform a wide variety of other gynecologic procedures to remove fibroids, cysts on the ovary, polyps and endometriosis while preserving reproductive organs; to correct abnormal uterine bleeding; to relieve pelvic pain; to stage and remove cancer; and to treat urinary incontinence or prolapse of the pelvic organs into the vagina.
