Ob/Gyn Specialists Ready to Care for You
Whether you’re in need of a wellness exam or concerned about a gynecological condition, the expert physicians at Saint Vincent Hospital are ready with treatment options and advanced diagnostic tools.
Our doctors specialize in treating a wide range of conditions that affect women, including:
- Bladder control
- Gynecologic cancers
- Uterine fibroids
At Saint Vincent Hospital, our gynecologic care includes advanced therapies, such as our InterStim for Bladder Control. If surgery is necessary, we offer minimally invasive options, including laparoscopic and da Vinci Robotic Surgery.
da Vinci Robotic Surgery
We’re proud to offer da Vinci Robotic Surgery for the treatment of gynecologic conditions. This minimally invasive alternative to open surgery and laparoscopy requires only 1- to 2-cm incisions. The da Vinci Surgical system offers many benefits, including:
- Fewer complications
- Less scarring and blood loss
- Minimized pain
- More consistent results
- Reduced risk associated with surgery
- Shortened recovery time
- Shorter hospital stays
When medication and other treatments cannot relieve your symptoms, a hysterectomy is often recommended as a more effective long-term solution for several conditions. If your doctor has recommended a hysterectomy, you’re not alone. One in three women in the United States will have a hysterectomy before turning 60. A da Vinci hysterectomy offers several potential benefits over traditional open surgery, including less pain and blood loss, fewer complications, a shorter hospital stay and smaller incisions.
With the assistance of the da Vinci Surgical System, our surgeons can remove uterine fibroids through small incisions with unmatched precision and control. Your surgeon can perform a minimally invasive, yet remarkably precise, comprehensive reconstruction of the uterine wall, regardless of the size or location of your fibroids. The unique level of control and precision of da Vinci can also help your surgeon provide precise and thorough reconstruction, which helps prevent a possible uterine rupture (tearing) during any future pregnancies. In addition to the typical benefits, a da Vinci myomectomy improves your chances of becoming pregnant afterward.
If you’re pregnant, the obstetric specialists at The Center for Women and Infants are prepared to offer specialized care for you and your family.
