Minimally invasive surgery for menorrhagia
Giving you choices for a healthy, new you
If you are suffering from excessive menstrual bleeding — known as menorrhagia — and your doctor recommends surgery, we may be able to help.
At Sharp, we offer minimally invasive robotic surgery for menorrhagia. Performed through a few small incisions, these procedures result in less pain and scarring and get you swiftly back to life the way you want to live it.
Compared to traditional "open" surgery, the benefits of minimally invasive surgery may include:
Less blood loss
Less risk of infection
Shorter recovery time

How minimally invasive robotic surgery works
Robotic-assisted surgery uses state-of-the-art technology that allows the surgeon's hand movements to translate into extremely precise movements within the operative site.
Small incisions are made into the abdomen to allow for the insertion of delicate surgical instruments that provide the surgeon with dexterity, precision and control. The magnified, three-dimensional view and tiny robotic instruments enhance the surgeon's ability to perform complex procedures. Rest assured that the surgeon and surgical assistant are by your side at all times.
