This team of highly trained surgical specialists opts for minimally invasive gynecological surgery (MIGS) to precisely target a broad scope of conditions, including endometriosis, fibroids, ovarian cysts, abnormal uterine bleeding and adenomyosis. Among the procedures offered are endometrial ablations, hysteroscopic fallopian tube cannulation, hysterectomy, myomectomy, ovarian cystectomy, revision/removal of vaginal graft, salpingo-oopherectomy and vaginal cystocele repair.

“We do a tremendously high volume of surgery through Orlando Health Winnie Palmer Hospital, and the vast majority is completed with minimally invasive techniques at more than double the national average,” says Jed Schortz, MD, a board-certified gynecologic surgeon with Orlando Health Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women and Babies Center for Advanced Gynecology and Minimally Invasive Surgery. Dr. Schortz is fellowship-trained in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, including advanced laparoscopic and da Vinci robotic surgery, as well as operative and office hysteroscopy.

“We see a high prevalence of both symptomatic fibroids and bleeding, vaginal and fibroid uterine bleeding, as well as endometriosis and pelvic pain,” says Dr. Schortz. “As specialists at a high-volume, high-level GYN surgical practice, we have the expertise to address both benign and complex gynecologic diseases using the minimally invasive surgical techniques we find patients prefer, thus avoiding traditional, open abdominal incisions.”

A recognized epicenter for da Vinci robotic surgery, Orlando Health Winnie Palmer offers advanced surgical training to physicians nationwide. In December, Orlando Health Winnie Palmer was again named a Top Teaching Hospital by the patient-safety advocates at The Leapfrog Group.
