Minimally Invasive Gynecological Surgery
Now, you have more options
You can’t always control the challenges you face, but thanks to a team dedicated to advancing women’s health, at Aurora BayCare, you do have expanded options for your medical care.
A Center of Excellence
Women’s health care is a priority at Aurora BayCare Medical Center, where we lead the way in raising the standard. We are an AAGL Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecology™.
To earn the center of excellence designation, hospitals and surgery centers must meet high standards of criteria providing:
- Significant and ongoing experience performing minimally invasive gynecological procedures
- Continuous quality assessment for the surgeon and the facility
- Comprehensive patient education
For our patients, minimally invasive surgeries provide a lower risk of complications, less pain, and faster recovery times. Surgeries that used to require six weeks of recovery can now be done with just a few “Band-Aid” size incisions. You can return to work in just one or two weeks!
More Options With Greater Benefits to You
With minimally invasive surgery, you have more options for gynecological issues such as ovarian cysts and infertility, incontinence, fibroids, gynecological cancer, and heavy and abnormal bleeding. More than 20 minimally invasive procedures are offered by more than 16 doctors Aurora BayCare Medical Center and its clinics.
Minimally invasive surgery offers you the benefits of incision-less procedures, or, smaller incisions and fewer stitches, shorter hospital stays and quicker recovery, less bleeding, less discomfort, and reduced risk of infection.

Same Day Home Hysterectomies
One in three women will undergo a hysterectomy at some point in their lifetime. The most common surgical procedure prescribed for women, over 70% of hysterectomies performed at Aurora BayCare utilize laparoscopic or robotic procedures. That’s more than double the national average.
Minimally invasive hysterectomies make it possible for you to have your procedure and go home the same day. Many patients tell us they would prefer to recover at home where they feel most comfortable. Minimally invasive surgery makes that a safe, viable option for many women.
