Minimally Invasive Surgical Options for Women
Conditions We Treat
The decision to seek advanced treatment – including any type of surgery – can be difficult. You want the best medical treatment available. At the Center for Advanced Gynecology & Minimally Invasive Surgery we offer advanced treatment options for:
- Abnormal bleeding.
- Ovarian cysts.
- Pelvic pain.
- Treatment options include medical management, non-invasive interventions and minimally invasive gynecologic surgery.
When surgery is the best option, our expert, board-certified surgeons use laparoscopic and other highly advanced, minimally invasive surgical techniques which can be a welcome and effective alternative to traditional surgery for many women.
At the Center for Advanced Gynecology & Minimally Invasive Surgery we are dedicated to delivering the safest and most effective gynecological treatment and care available. After a complete assessment, a personalized treatment plan is prepared for every patient.
In most cases, major and minor procedures are safely performed as same-day surgeries – eliminating the need for hospital stays and unsightly incisions, while also providing the fastest, least painful recovery possible.

Hysterectomy – If you’re suffering from symptoms such as heavy, frequent periods, uterine fibroids, a prolapsed womb or cancer of the vagina and related systems, you may need to undergo a hysterectomy to remove the womb. As one of the most common gynecological operations, we are able to guide and support you throughout the entire process so that you can remain calm, confident and healthy at all times.

Gynecology – With services including family planning, contraception, treatment of menopause-related symptoms and routine exams and pap tests.
Advanced Treatment for Uterine Fibroids – Although they are considered as non cancerous growths in the uterus, they can still cause a range of health issues in women including heavy menstrual bleeding, prolonged menstrual periods, pelvic pain and pressure, constipation, frequent urination and cramps.
Christiana Care offer a range of treatments with the aim to be minimally invasive by using the latest technology. For instance, Uterine fibroid embolization uses tiny plastic particles to cut off the flow of blood and cause fibroids to shrink. This procedure treats the entire uterus and all fibroids, and it requires only a short recover time—typically one to two weeks.
