This vaccination also helps to protect against genital warts.
Gynecological Care and Surgeries
Dr. Curtis is experienced in providing gynecological care throughout a woman’s lifetime. We offer basic gynecological services, such as routine pap smears, as well as gynecological surgery. When you’re facing surgery, the technology that will be used isn’t usually the first thing you think about–you’re more concerned with a quick recovery, as little pain as possible, and getting back to normal life!
Live Oak Women’s Care has good news… our surgeons now offer many types of minimally invasive surgery, including robotically-assisted surgery with the new da Vinci Robot.
With the da Vinci Surgical System, surgeons operate through just a few small incisions. The da Vinci System features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and tiny wrist instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human hand. As a result, da Vinci enables your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision and control.
