Committed to Caring for Women

The division of minimally invasive gynecological surgery (MIGS) is a division within the department of obstetrics and gynecology, and we are committed to caring for women with complex, benign gynecologic (noncancerous) disease. We focus on managing gynecologic conditions like fibroids, endometriosis, and chronic pelvic pain, as well as heavy, irregular, or painful menstrual cycles and ovarian cysts. These conditions can have a dramatic impact on the lives of patients, and our team is dedicated to creating a patient-centered experience to diagnose and treat our patients.

Fellowship-Trained Surgeons

Our team includes two fellowship-trained, minimally-invasive gynecologic surgeons, one nurse practitioner, and a staff of dedicated nurses, medical assistants, and support staff who work every day to care for our patients.

When these complex conditions require surgery, our surgeons are trained in performing complex minimally invasive procedures, including robotic, laparoscopic, and hysteroscopic surgery. Performing surgeries using these minimally invasive approaches carries a lower risk of complications, while reducing pain and shortening recovery time.


Two Multidisciplinary Clinics

Additionally, our patients can be seen in our two multidisciplinary clinics. The Uterine Fibroid Treatment Program is a partnership between the MIGS division and interventional radiology, allowing our patients to have uterine artery and uterine fibroid embolization.
