Gynecological Surgery (Minimally Invasive) Clinic

University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics offers a minimally invasive approach enhanced with robotic surgical technology to gynecologic and obstetric surgeries. This new technology enhances a surgeon's ability to perform the fine suturing required for these procedures. The more accurate and delicate the suturing, the lesser the chance of a scar tissue forming at the reattachment site.
