Surgical Services


Laparoscopy

Instead of making a larger incision, ports are inserted into the abdomen, allowing surgery to be conducted using a camera and specialized tools. Our surgeons use this minimally-invasive approach as often as possible. For example, a port procedure is used to diagnose endometriosis.

Laparotomy

More involved surgeries, such as cystectomies, require an incision to be made into the abdominal cavity.

Hymenectomy

Surgery may be conducted on an imperforate (closed) hymen to create an opening, preventing a buildup of menstrual blood and other complications.

Surgical Correction of Atresia and Anatomical Discrepancies

This includes surgical treatment for vaginal, ovarian and bladder malformations.

Examinations under Anesthesia

This option is available for younger patients, or those with developmental disabilities, who may find it difficult to feel comfortable and cooperate during an exam. Anesthesia may also be used when a more detailed exam is needed to investigate and diagnose a condition.
