General gynecology

We provide exceptional care in general gynecology, which focuses on functions and conditions specific to women and girls, as well as two gynecologic subspecialties: gynecologic oncology, which focuses on cancers of the female reproductive system; and urogynecology, which focuses on urinary incontinence and pelvic floor disorders.

Services provided include:

  • Annual well-woman gynecological exams
  • Menopausal care
  • Sexual health care
  • Hormone therapy
  • Osteoporosis screening and care
  • Gynecologic surgery

From routine to complex conditions, we offer integrated medical and surgical expertise, and provide the most appropriate and effective care for each patient. Our medical team includes board-certified doctors, physician assistants and advanced practice registered nurses (nurse practitioners). Our doctors are gynecologic surgeons whose practices center on evaluation of gynecologic conditions and options for treatment, which frequently involves minimally invasive options.

Minimally invasive gynecologic surgery

Virginia Mason Franciscan Health has some of the most experienced surgeons practicing minimally invasive techniques in the region. In 2001, Virginia Mason Franciscan Health introduced the precision of robot-assisted surgery. What started as a handful of advanced surgical procedures has grown to more than 70 minimally invasive and robotic-assisted options for patients, with new procedures added each year.

Our experience using minimally invasive surgery techniques helps women recover faster and with less risk. Virginia Mason’s high-case volumes and board-certified physicians ensure successful treatment with the least invasive approach possible for every patient.

Virginia Mason Franciscan Health has earned national recognition as a Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecology™ (COEMIG™) by the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists (AAGL™). Our teams earned this designation because of their excellence in gynecological surgery, with emphasis on quality outcomes, patient education and overall care.
