Gynecological Surgery

When you need gynecological surgery, you want an experienced surgeon using state-of-the-art techniques and technology. As a Center of Excellence for Minimally Invasive Gynecology, Westlake Hospital offers both. We offer many procedures laparoscopically, including hysterectomy (a surgical operation to remove the entire or a part of the uterus), myomectomy (surgical procedure to remove uterine fibroids) and tubal ligation.

Westlake Hospital and Joseph Furlin, M.D., have earned the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists Center of Excellence status from Surgical Review Corporation. This nationally recognized accreditation has been achieved by only ​three other hospitals in Illinois and demonstrates Westlake Hospital’s commitment to be at the forefront of minimally invasive gynecologic surgical care.
