SURGICAL PROCEDURES and INNOVATIVE TECHNIQUES

The physicians at the Women’s Medical Center have always stayed current in new and innovative surgical techniques. We were the first practice on the West Bank to offer total laparoscopic hysterectomy and continue to do many hysterectomies via this less invasive approach. If needed, we can also offer the use of the De Vinci Robot.
As an alternative to hysterectomy some women can opt for an endometrial ablation. You can read more at Treatment Options for Heavy Periods and Novasure .
