Our expert gynecologists perform both inpatient and outpatient procedures to treat a wide range of conditions, from endometriosis to uterine cancer, fibroids to ovarian cancer. We offer comprehensive care, including these procedures:
- Removal of ovarian cysts/tumors
- Fibroid removal
- Treatment of endometriosis
- Diagnosis of pelvic pain
- Diagnostic laparoscopy
- Removal of scar tissue
- Treatment of incontinence
- Treatment of overactive bladder
- Treatment of vaginal prolapse
We work to improve your safety and comfort through every step of the surgical process. Our surgical team works closely with board-certified radiologists to use advanced diagnostic technology. This technology helps our teams plan and carry out complex surgeries.
Our surgical unit is also staffed with experienced women’s care nurses. They understand provide both medical and surgical care, especially for gynecologic needs. They are dedicated to helping you through surgery and into the healing process.
At Bellevue Woman’s Center, we provide innovative treatments such as minimally invasive surgery and robotic assisted surgery. These procedures offer numerous benefits, including:
- Lower risk of infection
- Less scaring
- Faster recovery times
- Lower risk of bleeding
- Lower risk of pain
Our robotic-assisted surgeries include hysterectomies, fibroid removals, and tubal reversal surgeries. Robot-assisted GYN surgery is also performed at Ellis Hospital (1101 Nott Street, Schenectady), including:
- Single-incision hysterectomy
- Fibroid Removal
- Tubal reversal surgery
While hysterectomy is the second most common surgical procedure for women in the United States, only a handful of doctors perform a single-incision hysterectomy in the Capital Region. We are proud to be one. This procedure is performed through the belly button in just one incision, so you have virtually no scar and faster recovery from surgery.
Whether you have robotic-assisted surgery, laparoscopic surgery, or open surgery, we strive to get you home quickly so you can heal more comfortably and start getting back to your life.
In addition to gynecologic surgeries, we also offer breast surgery for the treatment of breast cancers. We offer many different procedures to diagnose and treat cancer that your care team can personalize to your needs. Common breast surgeries include:
