Women's Health


 Generations of women have trusted the DMC for advanced care for more than 140 years.  The hospitals of the DMC were the first in Michigan – and among the first in the nation – to focus on women’s health.  A lot has changed since then, but we are still recognized as a national leader in women’s healthcare and research.

The DMC Women’s Health Services is always there, conducting groundbreaking research, developing innovative therapies, providing compassionate care, empowering women to enjoy better health. Our nationally recognized experts and specialized programs make the DMC a destination for women’s care, with patients traveling to us from across town and across the state.

(A safer option for gynecologic surgery)   
If you need gynecologic surgery, ask your doctor if a minimally invasive procedure is an option for you.  Minimally invasive surgery has redefined the standard of care for women.  Gynecologists at the DMC offer a full range of minimally invasive procedures.  By using robotic-assisted equipment, doctors perform complex procedures with ultimate surgical precision and efficiency.  Many procedures that once required large incisions and an open surgical field can now be performed through a few tiny incisions…or no incisions at all. Compared to traditional open surgery, patients who have minimally invasive procedures generally spend less time in the hospital, have a faster recovery, less internal scarring, less pain and a lower risk of complications.
