MiniSurgery Just for Women
St. Francis is dedicated to becoming a trusted advocate when it comes to your health. We offer a variety of women's health care services to our patients - from annual exams to minimally-invasive hysterectomy surgery (and everything in between!). Should a diagnosis indicate that surgery is needed, you can take comfort in knowing that a majority of surgeries performed at St. Francis are minimally-invasive, often resulting in a faster recovery and shorter hospital stays for our patients - allowing you a quick return to your life! Just this year, St. Francis was recognized as a Center of Excellence for Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery by the AAGL.
Our teams of surgeons have vast experience in minimally-invasive women's surgeries for the following conditions:
For women who require surgery, St. Francis offers a range of technologically-advanced minimally-invasive surgical options, including the robotic da Vinci Surgical System.
St. Francis was the first hospital in Greenville to offer the robotic da Vinci Surgical System, the most advanced, minimally-invasive surgical treatment available. And, our teams of surgeons are the most experienced in Greenville! While operating from a console, our surgeons utilize robotic instruments to make small incisions in the abdomen to insert surgical instruments that have wide range of motion and a 3D camera, allowing them a better view along with additional precision and control.
There are significant benefits of robotic surgery for our patients: considerably less pain, less blood loss, less scarring, shorter recovery time, a faster return to normal daily activities, and in many case, better clinical outcomes. St. Francis surgeons also perform a much higher percentage of robotic hysterecomties than the national average via this breakthrough technology!
