Minimally invasive gynecology & robotic surgery

daVinci robotThe division of Minimally Invasive Gynecology and Robotic Surgery offers advanced surgical techniques. Minimally invasive techniques using laparoscopic and robotic technology provide many benefits to the patient including: smaller incisions, less pain, faster recovery, less risk of infection and shorter hospital stay. Robotic surgery in gynecolgoy is a fast growing field used to treat fibroids, abnormal periods, endometrisois, ovarian tumors, pelvic prolapse, and female cancers. Using the robotic system, gynecologists can perform hysterectomies, myomectomies, and lymph node biopsies. The need for large abdominal incisions is virtually eliminated. McGill is one of the few Canadian universities offering a fellowship in Advanced Gynecologic Endoscopy. This division is comprised of several highly trained specialists from three  teaching sites:

  • Jewish General Hospital (JGH)
  • McGill University Health Centre - Royal Victoria Hospital (MUHC)
  • St. Mary's Hospital Centre (SMHC)
