West Penn Hospital
A leader in minimally invasive surgery for a wide range of gynecologic problems
West Penn Hospital, which has been designated a Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery by the AAGL, offers a safe and effective alternative for women who have gynecologic problems. During a minimally invasive procedure, our surgeons use smaller incisions to access the uterus and surrounding anatomy with greater precision. That offers important benefits, such as:
- Less pain
- Less blood loss
- Less scarring
- Shorter recovery time
- Faster return to normal daily activities
- And, in many cases, better clinical outcomes
Our renowned, compassionate physicians work together to develop and deliver detailed care plans focused specifically on you. We provide effective treatment for many gynecologic conditions, including abnormal uterine bleeding, pelvic pain, pelvic floor disorders, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, uterine growths, ovarian cysts and gynecologic cancer.
