Center for Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery
The UCSF Center for Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery is our newest women's health clinic. We offer innovative care in a peaceful atmosphere.
Minimally invasive surgery can be used to treat a range of gynecologic conditions and has many benefits over traditional surgery, including a lower risk of complications, less postsurgical discomfort and faster recoveries.
