Our gynecological inpatient and outpatient clinics provide patient-centered and multidisciplinary care to women with gynecological concerns. We deliver a full range of gynecological services, emphasizing education and healthy lifestyle choices. We specialize in minimally invasive surgery, including the da Vinci Surgical System. Our main services are listed below. Additional services include urogynecology, adolescent gynecological services and mid-life care and counseling.

Gynecological care

We provide a broad range of expertise to meet the needs of women with complex conditions, including endometriosis and uterine fibroids. Our gynecologists specialize in minimally invasive surgery for some conditions, which has decreased the length of stay in hospital and length of the patient's recovery period. St. Michael’s offers the only two-year fellowship in minimally invasive gynecological surgery in Canada.

Pelvic Health Clinic

We use an innovative combination of therapies to treat women with complex pelvic disorders, including pelvic floor prolapse, chronic pain, vulvodynia and incontinence. Our holistic approach includes a multidisciplinary team of a gynecologist, uro-gynaecologist, nurse practitioner, social worker/sex therapist as well as experts in pain management. Not every patient will need to see every member of the team and the care will be individualized based on patient need and wishes.
