Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Tedesco "Dr. Tedesco is devoted to women s health issues. Early in his career, he became interested in uterine and vaginal prolapse problems, and has performed a large number of complex vaginal procedures to help correct these issues. He also has a commitment to minimally invasive surgery. Dr. Tedesco is the only gynecologic surgeon in the area to perform surgical procedures using the DaVinci Robotic System, thus turning major cases with extended hospitalization into minimally invasive procedures with only an overnight stay and rapid return to health."
