What Can I Expect When Receiving Women's Health Services?
The women's health specialists at USMD Hospital at Arlington strive to ensure a positive, personalized experience for all who visit our hospital. In addition, physicians, surgeons, and other healthcare practitioners providing women's health services at our hospital are highly trained to utilize some of the most advanced medical technology in use today. Such technologies include:
- Robot-Assisted Surgery: With the da Vinci® Surgical system, surgeons can perform robot-assisted hysterectomies, myomectomies, the diagnostic evaluation of a pelvic mass, endometriosis treatment, and ovaries, cysts and tumors removal, among other procedures.
- Stereotactic Biopsy: This form of biopsy may be performed as an alternative to a surgical biopsy. To conduct this procedure, the physician utilizes computer-guided imaging to locate a suspicious area of tissue, a sample of which is then aspirated with a syringe.
- Laparoscopy: A number of gynecological procedures are performed laparoscopically, including the diagnosing and treatment of ovarian cysts, fertility-related concerns, uterine fibroids, adhesions, and endometriosis. Laparoscopy utilizes a light-emitting scope to allow physicians to clearly visualize structures within the pelvic area.
- Laser Technology: Advanced soft tissue lasers may be implemented to treat or remove lesions or other abnormal tissue in the cervical, vaginal, or genital areas.
These advanced options for surgical and patient care allow for a more minimally invasive procedure, often carry less downtime, and may enable a faster recovery period.
