UI Hospitals and Clinics

Gynecological Surgery (Minimally Invasive) Clinic

University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics now offers a minimally invasive approach, enhanced with robotic surgical technology, to gynecologic and obstetric surgeries. This new technology enhances a surgeon's ability to perform the fine suturing required for these procedures. The more accurate and delicate the suturing can be, the less scar tissue will form at the reattachment site.

Types of Obstetric and Gynecologic Surgeries

  • Reproductive endocrinology and infertility
  • Myomectomies (surgical removal of uterine fibroids)
  • Fallopian tube reanastamosis (tubal ligation reversal)
  • Oncologic hysterectomies
  • Endo-tubal reanastamosis
  • Cervical/endometrial cancer
  • Exploratory surgery of pelvic massesĀ 
  • Repair of uterine and vaginal wall prolapses

Benefits of Minimally Invasive Surgery

  • Enhanced dexterity, precision and control for the surgeonĀ 
  • Small incisions, reducing surgical trauma
  • Quicker recovery
  • Less blood loss
  • Reduced pain
  • Shorter hospital stay
