The Polyclinic OB/GYN group provides patients with a full spectrum of surgical services. All our OB/GYN physicians use minimally invasive surgical techniques (laparoscopy, hysteroscopy) whenever possible. Minimally invasive surgery is performed using small incisions compared with traditional, open surgery. It has multiple benefits including less bleeding, less pain after surgery, less scarring due to smaller incisions, and shorter recovery times. In addition, we have several providers who are specially trained in a type of minimally invasive surgery known as robotic surgery that may be recommended in some cases.

Some of the Conditions We Treat Include:

  • Dysfunctional bleeding
  • Endometriosis
  • Heavy periods
  • Hysterectomy
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Pelvic pain
  • Pelvic floor disorders
  • Uterine Fibroids
