Division of Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery

Surgeons in the Division of Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery, part of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at NYU Langone Health, are experts at advanced, minimally invasive surgical techniques that treat benign gynecologic conditions in women. These conditions include endometriosis, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, pelvic adhesions, and chronic pelvic pain. Ted T. Lee, MD, division director, is an internationally recognized expert in the field.

Dr. Lee and his colleagues collaborate with other NYU Langone physicians, including those in the Departments of Surgery, Radiology, and Urology and the Robotic Surgery Center to provide the most advanced minimally invasive approaches to treatment. There have been nearly 2,500 gynecologic surgeries performed at NYU Langone’s Tisch Hospital and NYU Langone Hospital—Brooklyn.

Our Role in Education

Our surgeons offer educational opportunities to medical students and residents.

Training for Medical Students

We teach medical students gynecologic surgical anatomy, basic suturing, and minimally invasive surgical techniques, including laparoscopic skills, in the operating room.

Training for Residents

We provide resident education in surgical anatomy and advanced laparoscopic and robotic surgical techniques. Using a dual robotic console, we offer residents the opportunity to observe procedures and acquire hands-on surgical training alongside our expert surgeons.

Training for Fellows

Under the mentorship of our faculty, fellows play an active role in the clinical care of patients, participate in education, and engage in research in this subspecialty. Learn more about the Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery Fellowship.

Our Role in Research

Our physician–scientists conduct research related to safer and less painful surgical procedures that enable patients to return to regular activity more quickly than conventional open surgery.

Our Role in Patient Care

Our surgeons offer women advanced, comprehensive care resulting in excellent outcomes and a quick return to normal activities. Conditions we treat include endometriosis, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, abnormal uterine bleeding, and chronic pelvic pain.
