Gynecologic Surgery

Rely on Essentia Health gynecologic surgeons to perform your procedure and help you feel better.

Expert Diagnostic Services for Women

Your doctor may schedule a gynecologic procedure to check your reproductive health or diagnose a condition. These tests include:

  • Cervical or endometrial biopsy – Removes tissue from your cervix or uterus for testing
  • Colposcopy – Looks at your cervix and vagina
  • Cystometrogram – Evaluates your bladder function
  • Hysteroscopy – Uses a thin tube called a hysteroscope to examine your uterus and cervix

Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery

When standard treatments don’t help your gynecologic condition, your doctor may recommend surgery. We’ll explain your surgical options and recommend minimally invasive techniques, such as laparoscopic or robot-assisted procedures, whenever possible. That means you’ll experience less pain and scarring and a quicker recovery.
