Endoscopic pelvis













We prefer to manage most gynecologic condition medically first resorting to surgery only if necessary.  If you do need surgery, we are specialized in minimally invasive surgery to facilitate more rapid recovery.  A hysterectomy, for example, if done by the traditional vaginal or abdominal approach will require several days of hospitalization and six to eight weeks of recovery time.  Performed laparoscopically, the new procedure can be done on an out-patient, day-surgery basis.  Time out from work is one to two weeks.  Likewise, incontinence surgeries such as a Burch or an MMK procedure traditionally require an abdominal incision and a lengthy recovery.  They also carry greater risks of bleeding, infection and postoperative pain.  Now minimally invasive obturator sling procedure can be performed in fifteen minutes requiring little anesthesia or postoperative pain medication. 

    We are constantly training and perfecting our techniques in the latest gynecologic technologies.  Indeed, Dr. Cuong Nguyen, was awarded the "Special Excellence in Endoscopy Award" by the American Society of Gynecologic Laparoscopists.   He has been receiving hands on continuing medical education from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and Washington University Institute for Minimally Invasive Surgery on the topics of pelvic surgery and minimally invasive incontinence procedures.
