At the Center for Urogynecology, our specialists are internationally acclaimed for their skill and experience in performing minimally invasive surgery for women's urinary and bladder disorders. Minimally invasive surgeries are procedures that employ specialized instruments and cutting-edge techniques to reduce the number and size of incisions made during surgery.

Women living with any of the following conditions can benefit from our state-of-the-art surgical procedures:

  • Pelvic pain and abnormal bleeding
  • Urinary incontinence – an inability to control urination
  • Pelvic organ prolapse – the collapse of organs in the lower abdomen due to a weakening of abdominal walls from childbirth, surgery or other trauma
  • Interstitial cystitis – chronic discomfort and / or pain in the bladder and pelvic region

Benefits of Undergoing Minimally Invasive Surgery
Non-surgical treatment methods, such as Botox or Collagen injections, are usually prescribed to women with milder urinary and bladder disorders; however, in more severe cases, women can benefit from undergoing minimally invasive surgery, rather than traditional procedures.

The advantages of minimally invasive surgery for bladder and urinary disorders include:

  • Higher accuracy rates during the procedure
  • Reduced risk of complications during the surgery
  • Less pain and trauma for patients during surgery
  • Less post-surgical complications, such as scarring
  • Shorter hospital stays – In fact, some patients will be able to go home the same day they have their procedure. This benefit of minimally invasive surgery also has financial repercussions, as patients will likely have less expensive hospital bills.
  • Faster recovery times – Most women can return to their daily activities, including work, in fewer than two weeks after undergoing minimally invasive surgery.
