Women are faced with a number of gynecologic conditions that might require surgery. Fountain Valley Regional Hospital and Medical Center offers a vast array of minimally invasive surgery services to meet your needs. We provide:

Endometriosis, fibroids and pelvic floor prolapse are some of the most common gynecologic ailments requiring surgery. Traditional surgery used to be the only choice, with a lengthy and painful recovery.
Now Fountain Valley can treat many conditions with a minimally invasive robotic surgery using the da Vinci® Surgical System. Robotic arms are controlled by your surgeon. This allows greater dexterity and precision in the surgery process. A typical result is less blood loss, and less scarring and pain for a patient.
Minimally invasive surgery for UFE (uterine fibroid embolization) is also available at Fountain Valley. We use the Magellan system Embolize the fibroid. Meaning it restricts the blood supply to uterine fibroids so that they shrink. The uterus is left unharmed.
