Fort Walton Beach Medical Center's gynecologists have experience diagnosing and treating a range of women's health conditions. Using advanced robotic surgery, we can often treat gynecologic conditions with minimally invasive procedures.
Robot-assisted surgery allows the doctor to operate through very small incisions with unmatched precision. The results include less scarring, less pain, better outcomes and quicker recovery times.
We use robotic technology for many gynecologic treatments, including:
- Endometriosis resection
- Fibroid treatment
Endometriosis, also known as endometrial hyperplasia, is a condition in which the endometrial tissue grows outside the uterus. This can cause scarring, pain and heavy bleeding. Endometriosis can often damage the fallopian tubes and ovaries.
Endometriosis can be treated with medications or surgical interventions. If your doctor recommends surgery, they may perform an endometriosis resection or a hysterectomy.
Uterine fibroids are benign (non-cancerous) tumors. They can grow underneath the uterine lining, inside the uterine wall or outside the uterus.
Many women don’t feel any symptoms with uterine fibroids, however, fibroids can cause:
- Abnormal periods
- Excessive menstrual bleeding (also called menorrhagia)
- Frequent urination
- Uterine bleeding
Treatments include uterine fibroid embolization, which shrinks the tumor, and surgery. Surgery for uterine tumors most often involves removing the entire uterus (hysterectomy). Another option may be a myomectomy, which is a uterine-preserving procedure performed to remove uterine fibroids.
