Minimally Invasive Procedures
Women’s Health Specialists is a group of highly skilled OB/Gyns.
The team is often sought by women and referring physicians throughout
the Bay Area, thanks to a reputation for offering advanced techniques
in gynecologic surgery. Our focus is minimally invasive surgeries that
solve problems with smaller incisions, less pain, and providing a rapid
return to regular activities.
All these procedures are available in the
Washington Outpatient Surgery Center, and many are conveniently offered in our state of–the art office.

Laparoscopic Supracervical Hysterectomy (LSH)

it done with a scope through button-hole size incisions makes for a less
painful and rapid recovery. Your cervix and ovaries are preserved, maintaining
normal hormone and sexual function.

Many women are surprised to learn that condoms or birth control pills can
fail, resulting in unplanned pregnancies. Intrauterine devices (IUD) offer
