Minimally invasive surgical techniques can be applied to treat many gynecologic conditions when lifestyle changes, prescription medication or other options do not provide a solution. Below are some of the specific conditions that have been successfully treated with robotic-assisted surgery at Methodist Healthcare:
- Severe pelvic pain
