In addition, we offer minimally invasive options including Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy, Endometrial Ablation, and Leep procedures among others. We also welcome second opinions if you would like us to review your options.

- Myomectomy (removal of uterine fibroids)

How do I prepare for gynecological surgery?
Most surgeries require a period of fasting, so talk to your physician about when you should begin fasting before surgery. You could be asked to avoid all food and drinks (even clear liquids) for at least 10 – 12 hours before your surgery, even if it doesn’t require bowel prep.
Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothes to the office or hospital on the day of your procedure. Leave jewelry at home. Bring a friend or family member who can stay in the building during your procedure and drive you home if you’re having outpatient surgery.
Your physician will give you instructions for caring for yourself following surgery, and may schedule a follow-up appointment to evaluate your progress. Follow these guidelines and remember to contact us if you have any questions during recovery.
