GYNECOLOGIC SURGERY

Women's Health Care Associates offers a wide variety of surgical procedures performed in a hospital setting. Our female OB/GYN physicians are all trained in a variety of major and minor gynecologic surgeries, including a variety of minimally-invasive techniques. 

Our gynecologic surgery offerings include:

  • Surgical management of ovarian cysts

    • Typically we use small laparoscopic incisions to remove certain types of ovarian cysts that may be on one or both ovaries.

  • Surgical management of uterine fibroids

    • Fibroids are benign growths in the uterus that can cause problems depending on their size and location. ​We can use different surgical techniques to remove fibroids, either through the abdomen or through the uterus. 

  • Laparoscopic sterilization

    • Using a laparoscope, a small camera that goes inside the abdomen, we can remove fallopian tubes to permanently prevent pregnancy through small incisions.​

  • Dilation and curettage (D&C)

    • This procedure involves opening up the cervix and sampling the uterine lining to help diagnose and treat abnormal bleeding.​ It can also be used in the surgical management of a "missed miscarriage."

  • Vaginal hysterectomy

    • Removing the uterus through the vagina with no abdominal incisions. The original minimally-invasive hysterectomy!​

  • Laparoscopic hysterectomy

    • Removing the uterus with small incisions in the abdomen. We use a small camera and small instruments to perform the surgery.​

  • Abdominal hysterectomy

    • Using an abdominal incision (similar to a Cesarean section incision) to remove the uterus. Usually reserved for cases with a very enlarged uterus due to fibroids, etc.

  • Diagnostic and operative hysteroscopy

    • Using a camera inside the uterus to visualize any abnormalities and remove polyps or fibroids if needed.​

  • Diagnostic and operative laparoscopy

    • Utilizing a small, thin camera, we can look inside the pelvis with small incisions in the abdomen. If needed, we can perform a variety of procedures on the uterus, tubes and/or ovaries.

We perform these procedures at Littleton Adventist Hospital and Sky Ridge Medical Center.
