Types of Procedures

Centra provides a safer and more effective alternative to traditional open surgery by performing the vast majority of our procedures via laparoscopy, robotics or hysteroscopy.

Laparoscopic Surgery

In gynecological laparoscopic surgery, several small incisions less than ΒΌ inch are made in the bikini line for the introduction of laparoscopic instruments. Multiple gynecologic procedures and surgeries that are routinely done by an open technique can be potentially done by laparoscope, including: removal of the uterus, removal of fibroids and treatment of endometriosis.

Robotic Surgery

One of the current tools in the arsenal of minimally invasive surgery is a computer-enhanced technology or robotics. In gynecology, robotic surgeries performed include Robotic Hysterectomies and Robotic Myomectomies.

Hysteroscopic Surgery

Hysteroscopy is a procedure that allows your doctor to look inside your uterus in order to diagnose and treat causes of abnormal bleeding. Hysteroscopy is done using a hysteroscope, a thin, lighted tube that is inserted into the vagina to examine the cervix and inside of the uterus. Hysteroscopy can be either diagnostic or operative.
