The field of surgery is constantly improving and changing. The physicians at Lincoln Center are continually finding ways to improve women’s quality of life through state of the art surgical procedures. With these minimally invasive procedures and new technologies, pain and length of recovery are minimized. Listed below are some of the innovative procedures we do to enhance the lives of our patients.Cystoscopy –
We perform this procedure to examine the inside of your bladder for stones, tumors, bleeding, and infection. Cystoscopy allows us to look at the areas of your bladder and urethra that usually do not show up well on X-rays. Cystoscopy can also be used to treat some bladder problems and may eliminate the need for more extensive surgery.Dilation and Curettage (D&C)
– This surgical procedure is used to remove the lining (endometrium) and contents of the uterus. The D&C is most often used to diagnose and treat abnormal uterine bleeding. It is also used to treat incomplete spontaneous miscarriage. We normally perform this procedure in a hospital or day surgery setting.Learn more.
We perform this surgery using four different methods (vaginal/laparoscopic/abdominal/robotic) depending on the needs of the patient.Learn more.
– This minimally invasive surgical technique uses the hysteroscope (a small lighted telescopic instrument) to perform a variety of therapeutic procedures such as the removal of fibroids, polyps and the uterine lining.
with Endometrial Ablation – This minimally invasive surgical technique is used to treat many causes of heavy uterine bleeding.

– We are able to perform this procedure for women with severe stress incontinence caused by weak sphincter muscles.

– Allows us to provide rapid recovery from extensive surgery by avoiding large incisions on the abdomen. These techniques require a greater amount of skill with the laparoscope than would be typically encountered in our medical profession.

– A minimally invasive surgical technique used to diagnose and treat a range of abdominal or pelvic problems.
Learn more.Pelvic Floor Reconstruction
– When the muscles on the pelvic floor become damaged or weak – often as a result of childbirth – they are unable to support the weight of some or all of the pelvic and abdominal organs. If this occurs, one or more of the organs may drop below their normal positions, causing symptoms including discomfort, pain, pressure and urinary incontinence. Depending on the requirements of the patient we offer both non-surgical and reconstructive surgery for this troublesome condition.

– Depending on the needs of the patient we are able to perform this permanent sterilization procedure using a variety of techniques including minimally invasive laparoscopic tubal sterilization surgery.
