Traditional & Minimally Invasive Surgery

Piedmont offers a full range of gynecologic surgery—traditional and minimally invasive.

Minimally Invasive Gynecological Surgery

Surgical treatment for hysterectomy, uterine fibroids, urinary incontinence or pelvic floor repair doesn't necessarily require invasive incisions, a lengthy hospital stay or months of recuperation. Thanks to laparoscopic technology, minimally invasive alternatives to traditional gynecologic surgery allow the same procedure to be performed on an outpatient basis—no overnight hospital stay is necessary. Surgeons use tiny instruments that cut and seal blood vessels at the same time, making the procedure virtually bloodless. Scarring typically involves just three tiny abdominal incisions; patients experience relief more quickly and recover in just a few weeks.

Robot-assisted surgery is another leading-edge technology Piedmont physicians can employ in performing minimally invasive surgery. Robotic Surgery is a great option for many gynecological procedures, including endometriosis, uterine fibroids and hyperplasia and is available at Piedmont Athens Regional, Piedmont Atlanta Hospital, Piedmont Augusta, Piedmont Fayette Hospital and Piedmont Newnan Hospital.

Maintaining Pelvic Health

Pelvic health conditions—which involve the muscles, ligaments, connective tissue and nerves that control the bladder, rectum, uterus and vagina—affect millions of women every year, causing chronic pain, menstrual and/or urinary irregularities, and often interfering with a woman's sexual life. Treating pelvic health conditions is often a complex, trial-and-error process, requiring a true partnership between a woman and her care providers. Piedmont offers a variety of services to help women and their physicians diagnose and treat common pelvic disorders, including:

  • Pelvic floor dysfunction
  • Uterine prolapse
  • Bladder and bowel dysfunction
  • Uterine fibroids

An annual exam with your OB/GYN is key to maintaining your pelvic health. Find a Piedmont Physician specializing in women’s care today – for better care you've come to expect from Piedmont.
