The surgeons at Western Carolina Women’s Specialty Center are committed to providing the safest & most effective procedure to improve your health. We are experienced in performing alternatives to major invasive open abdominal surgery. Over 98% of our procedures are performed either vaginally or laparoscopically. This dramatically reduces the discomfort of surgery, minimizes the time spent in the hospital, & allows you to return to your regular activities much sooner. These procedures also reduce the amount of bleeding at surgery, avoids many possible complications, & result in fewer problems with infection.
Drs. Howden & Theofrastous are among the few surgeons nationally who perform complex vaginal & laparoscopic surgery to correct advanced pelvic organ prolapse. Dr Daw is the only surgeon in Western North Carolina who has completed a fellowship in Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery, & she is an instructor for teaching other surgeons how to perform robotically-assisted surgery for benign conditions.
