Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery

Neangela Dixon thought a hysterectomy was the only option for relief from her aggressive uterine fibroid tumors. Dixon’s dream of motherhood seemed impossible – until she met Shari Snow, MD.

At the University of Chicago Medicine, we're recognized leaders in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery. Minimally invasive gynecologic procedures use small incisions or no incisions to perform surgery for even the most complex cases of fibroids, heavy periods, pelvic pain, endometriosis and more. Compared to traditional open procedures performed through larger incisions, minimally invasive surgery typically results in:

  • Less pain
  • A faster recovery
  • Less scarring
  • No hospital stay or a shorter hospital stay
  • Quicker return to normal activities

Our specialists use the latest minimally invasive approaches, including robotic, hysteroscopic, ablation and laparoscopic techniques.

We have many convenient locations throughout the Chicago area where our specialists perform consultations and discuss treatment options.

Our team is fully committed to providing individualized and personalized care, so each patient receives the best possible treatment and outcome. Our surgical concierge assists in scheduling procedures, and provides detailed information on pre-operative and post-operative care. Our billing specialist pre-certifies procedures to ensure insurance coverage.

From the first consultation to full recovery, we support patients on the journey to health.
