Minimally Invasive Surgeries

David B. Mainman, MD has a particular interest and expertise in minimally invasive techniques in the office and the operating room. Many gynecologic problems once involved major surgery through large incisions, several days of hospitalization and many weeks of recovery. Today, our gynecologists correct most of these problems with no-incision in-office procedures or laparoscopic surgery either as an outpatient or with a brief hospital stay.

Unfortunately, many patients suffer needlessly with common but serious issues that can be corrected by minimally invasive techniques. These include:

  • Endometriosis
  • Pelvic pain
  • Dyspareunia (pain with intimacy)
  • Heavy, painful periods
  • Fibroids

Expertise with the most advanced treatment options

Once we diagnose your condition, we’ll discuss your options for treatment, which may include lifestyle changes, medication or surgery. If surgery is recommended, you’ll be glad to know that our gynecologists have extensive experience in minimally invasive procedures, including laparoscopic robotic surgery with the da Vinci® Surgery System. Our gynecologist has performed hundreds of these procedures and has trained medical students and other surgeons here in Tucson and elsewhere.
