Gynecology and Urology Services
Women who choose Women's Memorial Hermann at Memorial City for gynecology and urology services will discover a private environment, away from our busy labor and delivery area.
Doctors Skilled in Minimally Invasive Procedures
Physicians here are skilled in minimally invasive, robotic-assisted and computer-assisted gynecological procedures, including uterine ablation and vaginal hysterectomy, as well as procedures to treat endometriosis, ovarian cysts, fibroids and abnormal bleeding. The advantages are significant: shorter hospital stays, faster recoveries, decreased risk of infection, less scarring, and reduced blood loss and need for transfusion.
Comprehensive Treatment Options
Researchers estimate that more than one-third of women will experience urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, fecal incontinence, or other abnormalities of the lower urinary and gastrointestinal tracts.
Physicians affiliated with Women's Memorial Hermann offer urodynamic testing as well as a complete range of treatments that typically begin with the most conservative - Kegel exercises, medication and pessary fitting - before recommending surgical repairs such as bladder slings or pelvic reconstructive surgery.
Minimally invasive treatments available include tension-free vaginal tape placement, transobturator tape placement and Supra Pubic Arc (SPARC™).
Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center is home to West
Houston's first da Vinci® Surgical System, currently used for urological and
gynecological procedures, extending the surgeon's capabilities through enhanced
3-D visualization, improved dexterity, greater surgical precision, improved
access, increased range of motion and reproducibility. We are commitment to
excellence in robotic-assisted surgery and affiliated physicians use it
regularly for many gynecological surgeries.

Pelvic Floor Disorders Online Presentation
At Women’s Memorial Hermann, you have access to affiliated gynecological oncologists who specialize in the diagnosis, treatment and management of cancers that occur in any of the female reproductive organs. These types of cancers include ovarian, uterine (also called endometrial), cervical, vaginal or vulvar cancer. Because a gynecological oncologist is both an obstetrician and an oncologist, many patients are comforted by the continuity of care they receive from this type of specialist.
Treatment for gynecological cancer depends on the type and stage of cancer, and on other general health factors. In tandem with the Memorial Hermann Cancer Center at Memorial City, patients have access to a full range of treatment options delivered by highly-skilled, compassionate, multi-disciplinary care teams.
