The department provides 24 hour, seven-day-a-week coverage.The department provides the highest standard of care and utilizes the most modern equipment to perform minimally invasive endoscopic and laser surgery for procedures such as hysteroscopy and laparoscopy. For these procedures we utilize endoscopic techniques to explore and treat uterine, tubal, ovarian, and other pelvic pathology. This requires smaller incisions, less post-operative pain, and permits faster recuperation and return to normal activities. During 2010, approximately 1,900 gynecological surgeries were performed.
