Robotic Surgery
Robotic Surgery

Dr. Holt and Dr. Bienvenu are trained in the most advanced gynecological surgical technology available today, the da Vinci Surgical System, which is less invasive and enables their patients to have less pain and shorter recovery times. When medication and non-invasive procedures are unable to relieve symptoms, surgery remains the accepted and most effective treatment for a range of gynecologic conditions. These include, but are not limited to, cervical and uterine cancer, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, uterine prolapse and menorrhagia or excessive bleeding.
