Gynecologic Surgery

Minimally invasive and robotic surgical options to treat gynecologic conditions.

Some complex gynecologic conditions may require surgery. In those cases, our team of gynecologic surgeons will determine which surgical technique will best treat the disorder depending on your diagnosis, health risks, and family planning goals.

While some gynecologic diseases may require traditional open surgery, we offer a range of minimally invasive and robotic surgeries. Our goal is to offer every patient, when medically appropriate, a minimally invasive option for surgical care.

Our gynecologic surgeons are leaders in their field, often acting as subject matter experts at conferences and in national publications. Because of their expertise, Henry Ford Hospital is a fellowship training site accredited by the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists and the Society for Reproductive Surgery.

Types of gynecologic surgery

Our gynecologic surgery team offers a range of options for surgeries, such as traditional, laparoscopic, robotic, and vaginal. Surgeries we frequently perform include:

  • Hysterectomy: This is surgical removal of the uterus. Hysterectomy treats a range of gynecologic conditions, such as uterine fibroids, advanced endometriosis, heavy uterine bleeding, and certain gynecologic cancers.
  • Myomectomy: This procedure removes uterine fibroids, leaving the uterus intact and preserving the ability to become pregnant. This operation is a focus of our robotic surgery program. When fibroids are contained within the cavity of the uterus, we use a technique called hysteroscopy, which does not require abdominal incision and produces no scars.
  • Sacrocolpopexy: This procedure corrects pelvic floor prolapse, in which the uterus and/or other pelvic organs have moved out of their normal location in the body. Our robotic surgical team performs most of these procedures with the da Vinci robotic surgery system.
