Urogynecology Surgical Treatments

Leading edge equipment and approaches

Our doctors use the latest technologies in minimally invasive surgeries including robotic surgery with the daVinci Surgical Robot. The surgical robot allows OHSU surgeons to perform most abdominal surgeries without making a large incision. With this newer type of surgery, you usually have less discomfort and a faster recovery.

We are more experienced at using the daVinci robot for reconstructive surgery than anyone else in the Pacific Northwest.
