Specialty:

  • Obstetrics/Gynecology
    An OB/GYN provides specialized care for women and the female reproductive system. They have expertise in diagnosing and treating conditions and diseases. Their scope of service includes gynecological care, preventive care, family planning, prenatal care, childbirth and gynecological surgery.
  • Robotic-assisted surgery
    Robotic-assisted surgery is conducted through small incisions (minimally invasive surgery) using a robotic system. Robotic-assisted surgery is commonly used to perform gynecologic, general and urologic procedures and allows surgeons to have more flexibility, control and maneuverability than in traditional minimally invasive surgery. Patients can experience reduced trauma, shorter hospital stays and quicker recovery after a robotic-assisted procedure.
