Gynecologic Cancer Surgery

When surgery is needed, we make sure you get the best care possible from surgeons who have a long history of success. Dr. Finkelstein, Dr. Wisner, and our team specialize in minimally-invasive robotic surgery and advanced gynecological surgery. Dr. Finkelstein is double-boarded in obstetrics and gynecology as well as gynecologic oncology. She has performed more robotic procedures than 95% of surgeons nationally. Dr. Wisner is instrumental in the development of protocols for advanced surgical techniques such as sentinel lymph node mapping, and she incorporates these techniques with our treatment options.

Robotic/Minimally Invasive Surgery

For most patients, robotic surgery can offer numerous potential benefits over traditional surgical approaches, particularly when performing more challenging procedures. Potential benefits include:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Better surveillance of the entire abdomen and pelvic area
  • Fewer complications
  • Less scarring
  • A shorter hospital stay
  • A faster return to normal daily activities
