The Women's Laser Institute

The Women's Laser Institute has specialized in “Alternatives to Hysterectomy” since 1983. The Institute was involved in the early use of laser for laparoscopic and intra-abdominal surgery for pelvic adhesive disease, endometriosis and uterine myomata. Since 1993, the Institute also made use of the Harmonic Scalpel as a surgical tool for the treatment of pelvic disease.

Over the past 20 years, the Institute has taken an active role in the treatment of uterine fibroids and advocates myomectomy as a uterine sparing procedure.
