Because of this, our roster of all-female ObGyns provide among the highest quality of surgical treatment and care in the Austin and Central Texas region.

Partners in Health, Partners in Surgical Care

At Women Partners in Health, we believe in shared decision-making. If your condition requires surgical management, your physician will present all of the options available for your specific condition and assist you in making the best decision for your situation. We understand that considering surgery can be intimidating or frightening, and we encourage you to ask your ObGyn questions if there is any information that you do not understand.

Investigating Lifelong Contraception with Permanent Birth Control

At Women Partners in Health, we know that different contraceptive options make sense for women at different times of their lives. For women that are ready for permanent birth control, we offer a range of options, from Essure, an office procedure to tubal ligation. Your ObGyn will discuss the details of each procedure and help you make a decision about the best match for your situation.

Robotic and Minimally Invasive Surgery

Advanced Surgical Techniques Equal Quicker Recovery Time

Our ObGyn surgeons utilize minimally invasive and robotic surgical techniques when appropriate, which can help reduce your post-operative recovery time. We individualize treatment recommendations and make sure to take the most medically conservative approach.

We Offer a Range of Surgical Options for Women Partners in Health ObGyn Patients

A few of our specialized ObGyn procedures include:

Hysteroscopy: In this minimally invasive technique, your ObGyn surgeon inserts a thin, lighted camera through the vagina and cervix into the cavity of the uterus. Hysteroscopy allows your ObGyn to determine if there are any conditions within the uterus that might require further attention or treatment. In some cases, your surgeon will diagnose and treat the problem in a single procedure.

Laparoscopy: The laparoscope is a tool used in an outpatient procedure that uses a telescopic device that allows the physician to see the inside of the abdomen by using a lighted camera. We perform laparoscopy to identify possible causes of infertility, pelvic or abdominal pain; for treatment of endometriosis, ovarian cysts, or adhesions; or for permanent sterilization.

Myomectomy: Uterine fibroids are growths associated with the uterine lining or muscle that can cause abnormal bleeding, painful periods, pelvic pain, or infertility. The surgical removal of fibroids from the uterus is called a myomectomy. Myomectomy leaves the uterus in place in order to preserve childbearing potential.

Hysterectomy: A hysterectomy is the removal of the uterus for conditions such as uterine fibroids, pelvic floor prolapse, abnormal uterine bleeding, or cancer that cannot be treated with non-surgical methods. There are several different types of hysterectomies; your ObGyn will discuss the most appropriate option(s) based on your health history, diagnosis, and physical condition.

Is My ObGyn Surgeon a Robot?

Some of the most leading edge surgical techniques, such as the da Vinci Surgical Method, utilize robotic wristed instruments to perform precise, highly technical procedures through very small incisions. We can assure you that your ObGyn surgeon controls every move, and has greatly enhanced visualization and dexterity through the entire procedure while in the room with you.
