At Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital, we’re dedicated to doing everything possible to provide women and their families with the most advanced care available anywhere. We support women through all stages of life and work collaboratively with specialists in cardiovascular medicine, orthopedics and neurology – to name a few – to provide comprehensive care. We understand that each patient has personal and unique concerns. This is why we encourage our patients - and those close to them - to be active participants in care, and we work with each family to meet their needs. Through each step, we clearly explain every aspect of care – discussing all appropriate options to help the patient and their family make the best decisions. We offer complete outpatient and inpatient gynecologic care and the latest minimally invasive and robotic treatments for common and complex conditions, including uterine fibroids, urinary incontinence, and others. The landscape of gynecological surgery has evolved rapidly in the past few years. New surgical and non-surgical options are emerging for a variety of gynecological conditions, with major emphasis on minimally invasive and non-invasive options. The main goal of minimally invasive surgery is to avoid a large abdominal incision. This has several benefits to the patient, which include: faster and easier recovery time, less pain, less blood loss, and decreased scar tissue formation.
