More effective and easier on you

If surgery is the right option for you, take comfort in Dr. Valdivia's and Dr. Neal’s expertise. Many gynecologic procedures that were once considered major surgeries are now minimally invasive procedures that can be performed using small incisions and that have better results, faster recoveries and greater convenience. These minimally invasive procedures include:

  • Laparoscopy – An alternative to traditional surgery, we perform laparoscopy with a specially designed thin, lighted instrument we can insert through a much smaller incision to examine pelvic organs.
  • Pelvic prolapse surgery – Sometimes, with age, childbirth or certain diseases, changes take place in the pelvic area that can seriously impact your health and quality of life. Fortunately, Dr. James Neal and Dr. Leopoldo Valdivia have significant expertise with pelvic reconstructive surgery, performed laparoscopically (a high-tech approach requiring only tiny incisions). Laparoscopic surgery offers you a quicker, easier recovery than you could ever expect with older methods.
  • Laparoscopic hysterectomy – Thanks to advances in minimally invasive surgery and our doctors' skill, we can now perform hysterectomy laparoscopically with much smaller incisions. Most patients can return home the same day.
  • da Vinci® robotic surgeryThis system requires only a few tiny incisions, which enables Dr. Valdivia and Dr. Neal to perform a minimally invasive laparoscopic hysterectomy with enhanced dexterity and control, plus much greater vision and precision.
  • Myomectomy Through this procedure, Dr. Neal and Dr. Valdivia can remove any fibroids that appear in the uterus while keeping the uterus intact. This helps improve fibroid symptoms such as pelvic pressure and heavy menstrual bleeding.
  • HysteroscopyAllows us to inspect the uterine cavity through the cervix using an endoscope. Allows diagnosis and treatment of abnormal vaginal bleeding, fibroids or uterine polyps. This procedure also allows surgical sterilization.

Gynecologist physicians Dr. Leopoldo Valdivia, Dr. James Neal and Dr. Nicole Meisner also perform minimally invasive procedures to correct or treat fibroids, endometriosis, infertility, abnormal uterine bleeding and ovarian cysts. They offer minimally invasive sterilization options and other pelvic and vaginal procedures, as well. Their focus is on delivering skilled, compassionate care and positive outcomes with less bleeding and scarring and faster recovery times.
