2,000 gynecologic surgical procedures at performed annually
at Monmouth through its Department of Surgical Services and Cranmer
Ambulatory Surgery Center.
Trained in infertility and reproductive system surgery, physicians
are skilled in the latest laparoscopic, endoscopic and other
minimally invasive techniques to perform hysterectomies, treat
such conditions as endometriosis, and to remove fibroids and
Hysteroscopy and other diagnostic procedures also are performed.
In addition, Monmouth was the first hospital in the region
to perform uterine balloon therapy---as an alternative to hysterectomies---to
treat menorrhagia. The same-day surgical procedure involves
the use of the laser to remove the uterine lining in order
to reduce this excessive bleeding condition that affect 22
percent of all women of childbearing years.
Monmouth also is among a handful of hospitals to offer an
advanced minimally invasive surgical technique that reduces
post-operative risks and discomfort for women undergoing hysterectomies
and other gynecological surgeries. Equipped with the Laparolift
gasless laparoscopic system, surgeons can perform procedures
without using carbon dioxide to inflate the patient's abdomen.
