Laparoscopic Surgeries

Many gynecologic surgeries are now done laparoscopically. Many hysterectomies are performed through the laparoscope. The most common surgeries perfomed by Dr. Rudman include tubal ligations, removal of ovarys or ovarian cysts, or removing scar tissue (particularly from endometriosis). Patients are discharged home shortly after surgery, or in the case of a hysterectomy (removal of the uterus), usually spend only one night in the hospital.
