vNOTES (vaginal natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery) is an advanced minimally invasive gynecologic surgery that combines the benefits of the laparoscopic and vaginal approaches to gynecologic surgery. The vNOTES specialized instruments are placed through the vagina into the pelvic cavity, giving access to the uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries without the need for abdominal skin incisions. This allows complex surgery to be performed without visible incisions with faster recovery and return to normal activities.
The UCLA Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology has providers with specialized training and extensive experience in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery for the management of a range of women’s health conditions.
