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.

Benefits of Minimally Invasive Surgery

  • Enhanced dexterity, precision and control for the surgeon 
  • Less blood loss
  • Quicker recovery
  • Reduced pain
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Small incisions, reducing surgical trauma
