Minimally Invasive Surgery

Uterine Fibroids & Heavy Menstrual Bleeding

Almost every gynecologic problem, from fibroids to endometrial cancer, can be treated in a minimally-invasive fashion. Dr. Ofer’s focus on minimally-invasive techniques, including vaginal and laparoscopic / robotic approaches, will allow you to meet your goals and get back to your normal routines quickly.

Fibroid Removal

Hysteroscopic Myomectomy

Some fibroids can be removed with no incisions by inserting a special instrument called a resectoscope into the endometrial cavity through the cervix (accessed through the vagina).

Endometrial Ablation

Endometrial ablation injures the cells that line the endometrial cavity. This leaves behind less tissue that needs to slough off each month, and thus, less bleeding with menses. Dr. Ofer uses a number of modalities for endometrial ablation, including Novasure which uses a fan-like instrument that transmits RF energy to burn the lining.
