Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Cleburne offers a wide range of outpatient and inpatient procedures to meet the needs of women in the area. From incontinence to abnormal bleeding to hernias of the reproductive tract, physicians on the medical staff treat a variety of conditions.
The hospital offers advanced technology for gynecologic surgeries, which allows physicians to perform more minimally invasive procedures. In many cases, surgeries that once required large incisions can now be performed with tiny instruments that need only small incisions. These less invasive laparoscopic methods often mean benefits for patients such as less pain, shorter hospital stays and faster recovery times.
For example, many women needing hysterectomies, the most commonly performed gynecological procedure at the hospital, may be candidates for laparoscopic or vaginal hysterectomies. Physicians at the hospital also can use a hysteroscope, an advanced piece of equipment that allows physicians to look inside the uterus, for procedures. This technology often eliminates the need for an invasive diagnostic procedure such as a blind D & C (dilation and curettage) or directed biopsy.
