Surgeons at St. Joseph’s Hospital-North can perform some gynecological procedures robotically, which is a minimally invasive alternative to traditional surgery and offers many benefits to patients including less pain, a faster recovery, shorter hospital stay, less risk of infection and smaller scar. Surgeons also benefit from robotic surgery by gaining a high-resolution visual field, enhanced dexterity and better access to surgical sites.
Some patients require pelvic floor rehabilitation after surgery. Ask your physician about a referral to one of our specialists or one of our pelvic rehabilitation centers. The Pelvic Health and Wellness program also offers conservative treatments for pelvic pain, incontinence, prolapse, painful intercourse and other pelvic floor issues.
