Gynecologic Surgery

Our highly skilled and trained surgeons perform state-of-the-art gynecologic surgery

From the simplest procedure to the most complex gynecologic surgery, patients can rely on our San Antonio OBGYNs to perform at the highest level. Our surgeons stay up-to-date with their training, providing patients with the surgeries they need to improve their lives. In most cases, our surgeons can do minimally invasive surgery and perform many procedures in the office or on an outpatient basis.

Patients go home the same day with in-office procedures and outpatient surgeries

Many of our patients can come to our office for surgical procedures. Our San Antonio OBGYNs also perform many surgeries in the hospital on an outpatient basis, allowing patients to have surgery, recover and go home within 24 hours. Outpatient procedures allow patients to recover at home, which is less stressful for most women. It also lowers patients’ costs.

Minimally invasive gynecologic surgery provides many benefits

Sometimes women still need open abdominal surgery, but in many cases, minimally invasive gynecologic surgery is the best option. Our surgeons perform these procedures laparoscopically or robotically. Minimally invasive surgery benefits patients’ health in several ways.

• Lower risk of infection
• Lower risk of complications
• Less bleeding
• Less scarring
• Less hospital time
• Faster recovery

Our San Antonio OBGYNs are trained in robotic surgery

Patients shouldn’t be confused by the term “robotic” surgery. A robot doesn’t perform the surgery. Our surgeons are always in control of the robotic machine. Robot-assisted laparoscopic surgery allows our surgeons to perform more complicated minimally invasive procedures. The da Vinci Surgical System provides the surgeon with better views of women’s anatomy, while the robotic arms allow the surgeon to perform with the utmost precision.

We can help women with bladder control problems

Women who experience urinary incontinence often suffer from a reduced quality of life. They are embarrassed by leakage and the need to go to the bathroom frequently or urgently. At Heights OBGYN, our team is here to help, and when women need certain surgical procedures, we are here for that, too. Procedures include injecting Botox into the bladder muscle, injecting bulking material into tissue that surrounds the urethra, sling surgery, and other surgeries to treat bladder issues or pelvic organ prolapse.

Our skilled surgeons provide compassionate, expert care

At Heights OBGYN, our patients feel comfortable and cared for before, during and after gynecologic surgery. Contact us for an appointment.
