Why Choose Us?

At the U-M Von Voigtlander Women’s Hospital Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery Clinic, our team of experts, led by Dr. Sawsan As-Sanie and Dr. Bethany Skinner, evaluates each patient individually to determine the medical and surgical treatment options that best suit her 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 of our physicians are fellowship-trained specialists in minimally invasive surgery for benign gynecologic conditions. This means that all of our doctors have obtained an additional 2 years of specialized surgical training in advanced laparoscopic and minimally invasive surgery techniques. Our clinical practice is dedicated exclusively to the care of women 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.
