The Center for Women's Care & Reproductive Surgery provides comprehensive gynecological evaluation, diagnosis and treatment for patients who may need surgery as well as for general gynecological care and annual exams. The group employs the latest proven techniques in the treatment of endometriosis, pelvic pain, infertility, incontinence and other types of reproductive conditions including abnormal uterine bleeding, the most common women's medical problem. Many procedures can be performed in-office, saving the expense of hospital fees.

As a renowned innovator in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, Dr. Lyons trains surgeons around the world on the techniques he has developed. His laparoscopic techniques for hysterectomy, sterilization, endometriosis and other reproductive procedures attract patients from across the U.S. and as far as Buenos Aires, Moscow, Tokyo and Madrid.

The minimally invasive procedures he performs involve less pain, less risk and faster recovery times. When evaluating surgeons, it is important to consider their "conversion ratio," or the number of times they have begun a surgery as a minimally invasive procedure, and then had to convert it to an "open" procedure with a larger abdominal incision. Dr. Lyons' conversion ratio is less than one percent. Numerous testimonials are available on the Center for Women's Care web site.
