Backed by one of the region's finest acute-care hospitals, our gynecology program provides a full range of screening, diagnosis, preventive and treatment services for women of all ages. Whether you need routine gynecologic care or advanced gynecologic surgery, Swedish has the specialists to help.
For routine care such as annual well-woman exams, breast exams, menopause counseling, pelvic pain management or abnormal bleeding you will want to see one of our many gynecologists at their practice. However, if your gynecological care requires surgery, such as a hysterectomy or removal of ovarian cysts, Swedish can provide advanced surgical services using leading-edge technology.
Robotic surgery at Swedish
Swedish now offers minimally invasive robotic surgery using the da Vinci Surgical System for patients needing gynecologic cancer surgery.
The da Vinci® Surgical System is designed to provide surgeons with enhanced capabilities, including high-definition 3D vision, a magnified view and better control.
This advanced technology allows the doctors to perform complex procedures through just a few tiny openings, resulting in:
- Less pain
- Less risk of infection
- Less blood loss and transfusions
- Less scarring
- Faster recovery
- Quicker return to normal activities
Offering comprehensive, compassionate care for patients needing gynecologic surgery
Along with minimally invasive robotic surgery, an experienced team of physicians, anesthesiologists and nurses with extensive knowledge and expertise provide care for women requiring gynecologic surgery.
A personalized approach to patient care greatly enhances your physical healing and emotional recovery. With many years of education and experience in gynecology, our staff of experts understands the special nature of your care and recovery and will:
- Address and respond to your individual concerns
- Provide information about what to expect as you begin your recovery in the hospital
- Help you plan for how you will manage when you return home
Within two weeks of having your surgery, make an appointment in our pre-admit clinic (303-788-6009), which is directly adjacent to Admissions off of the main lobby of the hospital. Having your preoperative testing done before you arrive for surgery helps minimize your anxiety and provides you with an additional opportunity to ask questions about what to expect during and following your surgery.
A gynecological surgery area designed for maximum comfort and efficiency
The gynecological surgery area is unique because of its location within the hospital, as well as its design.
Patients reporting for outpatient procedures go directly to gynecological surgery (located on the 5th floor of the hospital), following an earlier visit to the pre-admit clinic, and are sent home after the procedure. Inpatients also report directly to gynecological surgery and are admitted to the hospital following surgery.
The design of the new gynecological surgery area was developed to allow an abundance of natural light for patients and space for doctors, which allows easy access to such state-of-the-art equipment as lasers and laparoscopy. In addition, pre- and postoperative care and recovery areas are dedicated to the GYN surgery patient.
