Gynecology Services 

 

From routine screenings to specialized cancer care, Baylor Irving uses advanced technology to diagnose and treat the unique conditions that affect women, including: 

Uterine fibroids

As many as 30 to 40 percent of women over the age of 30 may experience uterine fibroids, which can lead to heavy, painful periods. While some women many not experience any symptoms, for those who do, Baylor Irving offers several treatment options:

  • Endometrial ablation, which uses a heat source to destroy the inner layer of the uterus
  • Uterine fibroid embolization, a nonsurgical procedure that blocks the blood supply of individual fibroids, causing them to shrink.
  • Myomectomy (uterine fibroid removal)
  • Hysterectomy, surgery to remove the uterus, which can be performed either traditionally or using the da Vinci® S Surgical System  

A hysterectomy can be performed using traditional methods or using the da Vinci® surgical system. The da Vinci surgical system benefits typically include:

  • Less pain and scarring
  • Smaller incisions (usually 1 to 2 centimeters)
  • Decreased blood loss
  • Faster recovery time
  • Quicker return to daily activities
