At the Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery clinics, which are located across various University of Michigan Health locations, our team of experts evaluates each patient individually to determine the medical and surgical treatment options that best suit their needs. Our physicians are conservative in their approach to benign (non-cancerous) gynecologic conditions and only consider surgical options when indicated and appropriate. If surgery is found to be an appropriate option, we can offer a minimally invasive approach to most patients, often when they are told by other physicians that a laparoscopic approach is not possible.
All our physicians are fellowship-trained specialists in minimally invasive surgery for benign gynecologic conditions. This means that all our doctors have obtained an additional two years of specialized surgical training in advanced laparoscopic and minimally invasive surgery techniques. Our clinical practice is dedicated exclusively to the care of those with complex, benign gynecologic conditions. As a group, we perform the highest number of laparoscopic and robotic hysterectomies and myomectomies and have the greatest experience in minimally invasive surgeries for benign conditions in the region. Our faculty have also received the Focused Practice Designation in Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery from the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
