With Aurora Health Care, you have more choice in surgeons with vast experience who are dedicated to presenting you all options for your female health concerns. Minimally invasive gynecology techniques used in surgery include:

Laparoscopic: involves only a few, very small abdominal incisions through which a thin video camera and surgical instruments are inserted. The surgeon performs the procedure while viewing the surgical site on a video monitor

Robotic-assisted: combines laparoscopic techniques with the extraordinary dexterity and precision of robotic arms. Operating through the small incisions, the surgeon's hands are translated into smaller movements, allowing for delicate work in small spaces. Learn more about gynecologic robotic surgery.

Vaginal surgery: uses small incisions in the vagina to perform similar procedures. For example, in a vaginal hysterectomy, the uterus is removed through these incisions
