Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery (MIGS)
The specialty of Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery (MIGS) at Stanford Medicine is proud to be a national leader in minimally invasive surgical options and techniques. Minimally invasive gynecologic surgery includes hysteroscopic and laparoscopic approaches, which are associated with a quicker recovery, shorter hospital stay, less pain, less scarring, and fewer infections compared to traditional open surgery. Our team is specially trained to offer both non-surgical and surgical options for a variety of benign gynecologic conditions including fibroids, endometriosis, abnormal uterine bleeding, chronic pelvic pain, and ovarian masses. We are committed to providing patients with specialized and personalized care, only offering surgical intervention when indicated and appropriate. We are also committed to research in these important areas, as well as resident physician training and education.

We have created these multidisiciplinary centers to allow for focused and specialized care for our patients:
