Griffin Faculty Physicians Obstetrics & Gynecology offers minimally-invasive gynecologic surgery to treat a range of gynecologic conditions, including ovarian cysts, fibroids and endometriosis. Our experts specialize in minimally-invasive surgical techniques, such as laparoscopic, robotic, and a new method called vNOTES, that reduce pain while resulting in a faster recovery for you. Our compassionate doctors are committed improving your quality of life and working with you to develop an individualized treatment plan that is best for you.

Minimally-invasive surgery is a technique that uses advanced technology to make small, precise incisions that leave small or no visible scars, and can more quickly and easily improve your quality of life.

Many surgical procedures that used to be performed through larger abdominal incisions are now performed through less invasive procedures, some of these procedures include:

  • Cystectomy – removal of a cyst
  • Hysterectomy – removal of uterus
  • Myomectomy - removal of uterine fibroids
  • Salpingectomy – removal of fallopian tubes
  • Oophorectomy – removal of ovaries
  • Salpingo-oophorectomy – removal of ovaries and fallopian tubes
  • Tubal ligation – female sterilization
