Whether routine, complex, elective or emergent surgery, our team of specialized physicians, anesthesiologists and nurses collaborate to ensure the highest quality of care for each patient before, during and after their procedure.
Our compassionate healthcare experts are committed to providing personalized Woman-first care and using the latest medical technology for the best possible outcome. The Woman’s Hospital of Texas was the first hospital in the greater Houston area to be designated as a Center of Excellence for Minimally Invasive Gynecology.

Woman’s surgical services
In our state-of-the-art operating rooms, our surgeons perform a broad spectrum of inpatient, outpatient, and day surgeries. The Woman's Hospital of Texas is committed to providing minimally invasive surgical options, and the numbers tell the results. Approximately 85 percent of surgeries performed here are minimally invasive – more than double the number the average hospital provides.
Minimally invasive surgery means less blood loss, less pain medication, less scarring and faster recovery. Depending on the procedure, many patients are able to resume normal activities within a week as opposed to the four–to–six weeks' recovery time of traditional surgical methods. Many procedures can even be done on an outpatient basis.
