Fellows in our program would have a superior exposure to surgical procedures in reproductive endocrinology. As a referral center, we see a number of difficult surgical cases including severe endometriosis, müllerian abnormalities and uterine fibroids. Although laparoscopic surgical procedures are decreasing in reproductive endocrinology due to improving success rates with IVF, we still perform an adequate number of these cases to allow fellows to have good exposure to this area. We have state of the art laparoscopic and hysteroscopic equipment for the performance of difficult endoscopic surgery. All of our staff members are fully trained in endoscopic surgery and perform the bulk of the endoscopic surgery in our department. As such, fellows would be expected to become excellent endoscopic surgeons during their training.
Our faculty members are adept at robotic surgery as well. Because we run the departmental fibroid clinic, we perform robotic myomectomies and hysterectomies as well as rare robotic tubal anastomosis procedures.
