The Division of Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery provides advanced gynecologic surgical options for women in the St Louis metropolitan and surrounding areas. Nationally almost 70% of all hysterectomies are performed with large abdominal incisions. New technologic advances in the last few years allow most benign gynecologic surgery to be performed in a minimally invasive fashion.

Patient options include both laparoscopic as well as vaginal approaches. Many common conditions that can be treated include heavy menstrual bleeding, uterine fibroids, painful periods, prolapse and endometriosis. The goal of the division is to reduce the rates of large open incisions for conditions requiring surgery and therefore reduce a patient’s recovery time, hospitalization, pain and quality time away from her family. Minimally invasive surgery will allow patients to return to work and their normal daily activities sooner in most instances.
