Pediatrics Providers

Gynecologic Surgery

The Section of Benign Gynecologic Surgery at the MedStar Georgetown Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology (Ob/Gyn) offers expert surgical care for all non-cancerous gynecological conditions.

Gynecologic conditions can often be treated non-surgically. When surgery is the best option, however, our expert team of board-certified gynecologic surgeons are here to help you get well—safely and comfortably. Whenever possible, we use minimally-invasive, laparoscopic, vaginal, and robot-assisted approaches. These techniques offer better outcomes, faster healing, less scarring, and lower risks of complications.

We can help patients overcome a wide range of gynecological health challenges, including: infertility, endometriosis, fibroids, abnormal uterine bleeding, uterine polyps, ovarian cysts, pelvic pain, pelvic organ prolapse, and bladder disorders. Patients with gynecological cancers are treated through the MedStar Georgetown Cancer Institute.

Our Ob/Gyn providers work closely with other departments throughout MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, including the department of Bloodless Medicine and Surgery for patients who cannot or prefer not to receive blood transfusions during surgery. With a wide variety of capabilities all available at one location, you can seamlessly access all of the care you need.

Our Surgical Capabilities Include:

Office Diagnostic Hysteroscopy

An Office Diagnostic Hysteroscopy can be used to diagnose problems in a woman’s uterus. To complete the procedure, a thin tube (scope) equipped with lights and a camera is inserted through the vagina. The Ob/Gyn then guides the scope’s movement using a video screen.

Hysteroscopy is a minimally-invasive procedure that can be completed right in the doctor’s office. Since the approach does not require any incisions, there is no healing time required after the procedure and patients can return home right away.

Hysterectomy

A hysterectomy is the surgical removal of the uterus. This procedure can be used to treat several types of gynecological conditions—including cancer, non-cancerous tumors, fibroids, endometriosis, uterine prolapse, abnormal bleeding, and chronic pain.  The Section of Benign Gynecologic Surgery offers laparoscopic, vaginal, and robot-assisted approaches for this procedure, as well as traditional open/abdominal approaches when necessary.  

  • Laparoscopic hysterectomy: To perform a hysterectomy laparoscopically, the surgeon creates a very small incision near the patient’s belly button. After inserting a thin tube (scope) equipped with tiny surgical tools, lights, and a camera, the surgeon uses a video screen to guide the procedure.
  • Robot-assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy: This type of hysterectomy is similar to the laparoscopic approach described above. It begins with a small abdominal incision and the insertion of a scope. The surgeon uses a computer to manipulate the surgical instruments, a technique that can allow for more precise movement in small spaces.
  • Vaginal hysterectomy: This approach is performed completely through the vagina, without any abdominal incisions.

Myomectomy

Fibroids are a very common type of benign (non-cancerous) tumor that can develop in the uterus.  Although many women experience no symptoms, fibroids may cause menstrual bleeding, frequent urination, fertility problems, or pain.  In these cases, a myomectomy procedure to remove fibroids may be helpful.

Unlike a hysterectomy, a myomectomy allows a woman to keep her uterus—only the fibroids are removed. This makes it a good option for women who may want to have a baby in the future.

We offer several minimally-invasive types of myomectomy:

  • Laparoscopic myomectomy: To perform this procedure, the surgeon creates a very small incision near the patient’s belly button. After inserting a thin tube (scope) equipped with tiny surgical tools, lights, and a camera, the surgeon uses a video screen to guide the operation.
  • Robot-assisted laparoscopic myomectomy: This approach is similar to the laparoscopic procedure described above, beginning with a small abdominal incision and the insertion of a scope. However, the surgeon uses a computer to manipulate the surgical instruments. This can allow for more precise movement in small spaces.
  • Hysteroscopic myomectomy: During a hysteroscopic myomectomy, the surgeon inserts the scope through the vagina. This is an option for fibroids located in certain areas of the uterus.

Cancer Risk Reductive Surgery

Genetics can put women at higher risk for certain types of cancer. For instance, women who have a gene mutation called BRCA are at increased risk of ovarian and breast cancer.  

Risk-reducing surgery can help prevent cancer from developing. Several types of surgery fall into this category of procedures, including removal of the ovaries (prophylactic oophorectomy) or the uterus (hysterectomy).

For many women, these procedures offer great peace of mind. For others, a different treatment approach is the right fit. Your clinician will help you make the decision that is right for you.

Fertility Surgery

Gynecological conditions can have an effect on your fertility, make it more difficult to become pregnant or to have a healthy full-term pregnancy.  We offer several surgical techniques to improve fertility.

  • Uterine septoplasty: Women with a septate uterus have a thin wall, or membrane, that divides the inner part of the uterus into two sections. This is a common cause of fertility problems. A uterine septoplasty is a procedure to remove the membrane dividing the uterus. This procedure is performed using a minimally-invasive approach called hysteroscopy that requires no incisions.
  • Treatment of endometriosis: Endometriosis is a condition in which the tissue that normally grows inside the uterus grows outside the uterus. Endometriosis is common, but it can be painful and cause fertility issues. We can treat this condition in several ways, including medication or surgery to remove or treat the endometriosis.
  • Adhesiolysis: Some women have scar tissue in the pelvis, a condition most commonly caused by prior surgeries. When appropriate, pelvic scar tissue can be removed—typically in a minimally-invasive fashion—through a procedure called Adhesiolysis. Adhesiolysis can be helpful to patients who are experiencing pain or fertility issues as a result of the scar tissue.

Ovarian Surgery

The ovaries can be affected by several kinds of benign conditions, including the growth of non-cancerous tumors or fluid-filled sacs called cysts.  Our team can treat the full range of ovarian conditions. Typically, these procedures can be done using minimally-invasive approaches that allow for faster healing and fewer complications.

Endometrial Ablation

If you have extremely heavy or long menstrual cycles, endometrial ablation may a treatment option.  This procedure removes the lining of the uterus so that menstrual flow is greatly reduced or stopped. Typically, this procedure is not done on women who want to have children because it can increase the risks of pregnancy. This procedure is typically performed using hysteroscopy, a minimally invasive approach that requires no incisions.

Polypectomy

Polyps are a type of growth that can develop on the lining of the uterus or cervix. While polyps are usually benign (non-cancerous), they can sometimes become cancerous over time. They can also cause problems like heavy or irregular menstrual periods, bleeding between periods or after menopause, reduced fertility, or pain. 

A polypectomy is a procedure used to remove polyps. This procedure can often be performed hysteroscopically. This means that the surgeon inserts a thin tube (scope) equipped with tiny surgical tools, lights, and a camera through the vagina—no incisions required. The surgeon uses a video screen to guide the procedure.

Proton Therapy

What is Proton Therapy?

Proton Therapy at MedStar Georgetown

Pencil Beam Scanning Proton Therapy (PBS) / Intensity-Modulated Proton Therapy (IMPT)

While many proton centers offer treatment with an older form of proton therapy called double scattered protons, the most recent refinement to proton therapy is called pencil beam scanning (PBS), allowing the delivery of intensity-modulated proton therapy (IMPT). PBS is designed to treat a single layer of a tumor at a time, in effect painting the tumor with radiation spot-by-spot, and slice by slice. Many centers that offer PBS still use the older form of proton technology to treat patients. At Medstar Georgetown, all patients are treated using proton therapy with HYPERSCAN™, an advanced form of PBS.

HYPERSCAN Proton Therapy Technology

The MEVION S250i™ with HYPERSCAN proton therapy system is the most advanced proton cancer treatment technology currently available. MedStar Georgetown is the first proton therapy center to access this level of advanced cancer treatment technology. With focused targeting of PBS, proton therapy with HYPERSCAN is the most precise PBS system available. The HYPERSCAN system is the fastest form of PBS, reducing the duration of each treatment session and improving both clinical accuracy and patient comfort.

How HYPERSCAN Technology Works

The HYPERSCAN system uses a pencil beam proton scanner, which deposits protons in the tumor spot-by-spot, layer-by-layer. The planning system creates a 3-dimensional representation of the tumor and relays the information to the proton therapy device. Then, the HYPERSCAN machine precisely targets the exact location of the tumor, delivering radiation one layer at a time. The accuracy of this state-of-the-art proton treatment system allows patients to be treated for cancer with less radiation exposure to normal tissues than other proton therapy systems.

Image-Guided and Adaptive Proton Therapy

MedStar Georgetown is also able to deploy proton therapy with the most advanced system available for the foreseeable future; we will enable the best positioning for patients to receive their treatments. We offer image-guided proton therapy (IGPT), using high-resolution imaging systems to accurately position a patient for radiation delivery.

Unlike other proton units, we offer adaptive proton therapy, with a diagnostic-quality CT scanner in the treatment room that can be used to modify treatment in response to changes in the patient’s anatomy, such as when the tumor shrinks during the treatment course.

Proton therapy with HYPERSCAN is a highly advanced form of radiation therapy (radiotherapy) that has the power to shrink and eliminate cancer by precisely focusing protons onto the target tumor. The state-of-the-art therapy, which is available at the MedStar Georgetown University Hospital Proton Therapy Center, improves the outcomes of patients undergoing radiation therapy. Proton therapy involves significantly less radiation exposure to normal tissues and can result in fewer side effects compared to traditional radiation therapy.

Proton therapy takes advantage of the physical properties of the proton particles, which can be controlled better than conventional radiation. This makes proton therapy more accurate and precise, destroying tumors without causing damage to the surrounding healthy cells. Proton therapy can avoid the need for certain surgeries and provides patients with an alternative treatment option for cancers of all types as well as recurrent cancers.

Why is proton therapy used?

Proton radiation therapy can be used to treat a wide range of cancers and can treat tumors anywhere in the body. The cancer care team at MedStar Georgetown is continuously working to expand the list of conditions that can be treated using proton therapy.

Below are some of the most common conditions treated with proton therapy:

For a complete list of conditions treated using proton therapy, visit our Proton Therapy Conditions page

How does proton therapy work?

Proton therapy is similar to other forms of radiation in application, targeting cancerous cells without the need for surgical incisions. Traditional radiation therapy uses a special kind of high-energy beam, which is aimed at the cancer to damage the cells and stop them from multiplying. However, this high-energy beam impacts not only tumor cells, but it also damages other healthy cells that are in its path. On the other hand, proton therapy is better able to precisely target the exact location of the tumor, leaving surrounding healthy cells unharmed. In the long run, this can reduce the chances of developing secondary cancers due to radiation.

What to Expect During Proton Therapy

Visiting MedStar Georgetown for Proton Therapy

At MedStar Georgetown, our doctors are dedicated to providing a seamless experience that is tailored to meet each patient’s individual needs. MedStar Georgetown University Hospital is home to leaders in proton and other forms of radiation therapy, who will guide you through every step of your treatment process and offer you personalized care and support throughout your recovery.

Proton Therapy Consultation

MedStar Georgetown University Hospital is home to leaders in proton and other forms of radiation therapy, who will guide you through every step of your treatment process and offer you personalized care and support throughout your recovery.

The first step of proton therapy is determining whether it is the best treatment for your unique situation and health condition. During an initial consultation, a specialized radiation oncologist will determine whether you are a good candidate for proton therapy by reviewing your medical history and discussing your personal needs with you. 

Proton Therapy Cost

Once your doctor determines that you are a good candidate for proton therapy, the next step involves our Radiation Medicine Department team contacting your insurance provider to determine whether your treatment will be covered. We understand that medical bills and questions about insurance coverage can be a significant source of concern and stress for patients and their families, so it is a priority for us to keep you well-informed prior to beginning your treatment.

Does insurance cover proton therapy?

Medicare is covering proton therapy. Proton therapy is a standard of care for pediatric patients so insurance plans will cover most patients under the age of 21 or 19, depending on the plan. 

If you are a candidate for the proton therapy, your insurance will be contacted to find out if it is a covered benefit for you.  We have hired associates who will help our patients work through to obtain authorization and assist in the appeal process, if necessary.

We anticipate that insurance plans will cover most patients who need proton therapy, which is just a new way to deliver radiation, a treatment that has been around for decades. We will keep you informed as we pursue the process.

Proton Therapy Treatment Outline

Friendly staff members help patients check in at the MedStar Georgetown University Hospital Proton Therapy Center.

Proton therapy is performed in two stages:

  • Treatment Preparation (Simulation Session): Prior to actual treatments, our physicians will generate a radiation plan that is specific to you and your treatment needs including positioning and identification of your treatment area. Preparing this plan generally involves diagnostic imaging (CT, MRI, and/or PET scanning), which will guide the simulation session of the proton therapy that follows. Your physician will work with the radiation physicist and dosimetrist to come up with the best treatment plan, including dosage and beam configuration, to meet your needs.
  • Treatment Sessions: Shortly after the preparation phase, your radiation treatment sessions will begin. Most patients visit their radiation oncologist at least once a week while they are on treatment. During the course of the treatment sessions, most patients can continue their everyday routine, and return to work and other regular activities following treatment. Because proton therapy may cause significantly fewer side effects than other radiation therapies, it is less disruptive to your daily routine.

Benefits of Proton Therapy

Benefits of Proton Therapy at MedStar Georgetown

 

Proton therapy  with HYPERSCAN™ is the next generation of radiation therapy, providing patients with a wide range of benefits:

  • Targets and destroys tumors with precise accuracy
  • Applies less radiation dose than other types of radiation therapy due to its ability to shape to the exact size and shape of the tumor
  • Causes less damage to surrounding healthy tissues by improved accuracy
  • Results in virtually no exit dose (radiation exposure that continues through the body beyond the tumor)
  • Lowers the risk of radiation-induced secondary cancers
  • Results in fewer side effects and better quality of life following treatment
  • Highly customizable treatment that can be tailored to each patient's unique needs

Benefits of Proton Therapy with HYPERSCAN for Children 

Proton therapy is generally accepted as part of the standard of care treatment for many pediatric cancers. In addition to providing the most advanced form of radiation therapy for adults, proton therapy is beneficial for children, in particular, for several reasons.

  • Children are less likely to develop a secondary cancer when treated with proton therapy. There are several studies that suggest that proton therapy is more effective at eliminating cancerous cells while keeping healthy surrounding cells unharmed. This means that the chances of suffering from a secondary radiation-induced cancer later in life may be significantly reduced when using proton therapy.
  • Proton therapy lowers a child’s exposure to radiation. Because proton therapy with pencil beam scanning (PBS) can be more tightly controlled than conventional radiation therapy, it avoids unnecessary radiation exposure, especially to healthy tissues surrounding the treatment area. This results in less growth impairment.
  • Normal activities are less impacted during proton therapy treatments than with other forms of radiation treatment. During traditional radiation treatment, a child is usually exposed to higher levels of radiation to normal tissue, which can cause more side effects. This is especially concerning when treating a child, who may have to stay home from school or other activities during treatment. Proton therapy increases the likelihood that a child can continue his or her everyday life with less disruption during the treatment process.
