Because each woman is unique, Brookings Health System offers a wide range of gynecologic surgery procedures.

Board-certified gynecologists help women navigate the best course of care for their individual condition, including heavy menstrual periods (defined as soaking a tampon or a pad every two hours or less OR periods that last longer than eight days), irregular menstrual periods, bleeding after menopause, pelvic pain, endometriosis, fibroids, polyps and ovarian cysts.
