Gynecological Surgery

When medication and non-invasive procedures are unable to relieve symptoms, surgery remains the accepted and most effective treatment for a range of conditions that affect a woman's reproductive organs, including:

  • Cervical and uterine cancer
  • Hysterectomy and myomectomy
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Endometriosis
  • Prolapsed uterus
  • Excessive bleeding

Robotic-assisted surgery 

UM Health-Sparrow is a leader in the use of advanced robotic surgery for hysterectomies and other gynecological issues. Robotic-assisted surgery offers a broad, new range of treatment options for common problems affecting women. UM Health-Sparrow boasts two DaVinci robotic surgical systems in its state-of-art operating rooms in the UM Health-Sparrow tower, allowing expanded treatment for a greater number of patients.

Because robotic-assisted gynecological surgeries at UM Health-Sparrow are minimally invasive, patients are given options they wouldn’t have with traditional open surgery. The benefits include less scarring (incisions the size of a quarter), a shorter hospital stay, and dramatically decreased recovery time – women who undergo a robotic-assisted hysterectomy typically return to their daily activities in 14-20 days, rather than the typical six weeks required for open surgery.
