Patient Care

LVMIS-WPHC is well known for being a “patient-centric” center of excellence in minimally invasive surgery and pelvic health. It’s not enough to just offer the most cutting-edge surgical procedures available. We strive to not only meet our patient’s expectations, but we exceed them with the best outcomes. Women and their families are treated as individuals. Our patient’s unique circumstances are attended to with a team approach. Before any patient undergoes surgery, the necessary studies and health assessments are performed in order to maintain the highest level of safety.

Patients seeking care outside the Las Vegas area have many accommodation options for them and their families. From personalized car service to appointment assistance, patients have a health concierge arrange everything for them. Depending on the surgery, both the patient and their family can stay at a number of our selected venues that best fits individual needs.
