A woman’s body is constantly changing, from puberty until after menopause. Since this complex system undergoes such change over time, there are a host of conditions and diseases that can result.

At WakeMed, we are committed to women’s health at every phase of life.

Advanced Gynecologic Care for Women

Through our dedicated women’s health program, we offer some of the most advanced care for women who need gynecologic care. Our physicians provide individualized, specialized care aimed at not only treating disease, but in helping women achieve and maintain better overall health.

Effective Treatment for Gynecologic Conditions

When medication and non-invasive procedures are unable to relieve symptoms, surgery remains the accepted and most effective treatment for a range of gynecologic conditions. These include, but are not limited to, cervical and uterine cancer, uterine fibroidsfibroids, endometriosis, uterine prolapseprolapse and menorrhagia or excessive bleeding.

Traditional open gynecologic surgery, using a large incision for access to the uterus and surrounding region, has been the standard approach to many gynecologic procedures. However, these procedures result in more pain and discomfort, longer recovery and potential impact nearby organs and nerves.

For women facing gynecologic surgery, there are now better options thanks to minimally invasive procedures. In some cases, our board-certified gynecologists can access these regions through a vaginal approach or through a series of very tiny abdominal incisions. These laparoscopic and robotically perfected techniques offered at WakeMed provide women with a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.

Common Conditions that can be Treated with Minimally Invasive Surgeries

We also offer diagnostic laparoscopy for gynecological conditions.

The American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists is also an excellent resource for women interested in learning more about minimally invasive surgical options.

WakeMed has board-certified gynecologists on staff who perform minimally invasive, corrective procedures. Find a WakeMed OB-GYN office and gynecologist here.
