Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery specializes in providing academic education and providing laparoscopic and minimally invasive surgery for most gynecology indications, including complete laparoscopic hysterectomy and minimally invasive procedures for incontinence and vaginal prolapse.

We offer the latest in surgical technology, including our newest addition, the da Vinci surgery instrument. da Vinci provides live 3-D images of the operation area while using precise robotic arms that allow the patient to experience less pain, less scarring, and shorter recovery time than prior surgical methods. da Vinci allows surgeons to sit in a more ergonomic position during surgery and to use their wrists, which could not be done in prior surgery techniques.
