Comprehensive, compassionate gynecologic care
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 gynecologists at their practice. However, if you need care that requires surgery, such as a hysterectomy or removal of ovarian cysts, we provide advanced surgical services with leading technology at our main hospital location.
Robotic gynecological surgery at Swedish
We offer minimally invasive robotic surgery using the da Vinci® surgical system for patients needing gynecologic cancer surgery. This system is designed to provide surgeons with enhanced capabilities, including high-definition 3D vision, a magnified view and better control.
This technology allows 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
Our gynecologic surgery team
A personalized approach to patient care greatly enhances your physical healing and emotional recovery. To aid you in this, our expert staff:
- Addresses and responds to your individual concerns
- Provides information about what to expect as your begin your recovery in the hospital
- Helps you plan for how you will manage when you return home
Within two weeks of having your surgery, make an appointment in our pre-admission clinic by calling (303) 788-6009. 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.
Our surgical accommodations
Patients reporting for outpatient procedures go directly to gynecological surgery, following an earlier visit to the pre-admission 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 our new gynecological surgery area was developed to allow for an abundance of natural light for patients and space for doctors, which allows easy access to equipment like lasers and laparoscopic controls. In addition, pre- and post-operative care and recovery areas are dedicated to the GYN surgery patient.
