Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecology

Avista is one of only three hospitals in Colorado to earn the prestigious Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecology (COEMIG) seal from the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists (AAGL) and Surgical Review Corporation. 

We are proud to have earned this designation. In addition to placing Avista Adventist Hospital at the forefront of minimally invasive gynecologic care, it signifies our commitment to provide the best and safest care to our patients, each and every day. When a woman sees the COEMIG seal, they will know they are receiving the highest quality gynecologic care from world-class experts.

Conditions We Treat

Whether a woman has severe cramps, heavy menstrual bleeding, painful intercourse or they are afraid to exercise for fear of bladder leakage; gynecologic conditions afflict women of all ages and limit their quality of life. Avista offers minimally invasive procedures for the following: 

  • Abnormal uterine bleeding
  • Endometriosis
  • Hysterectomy
  • Infertility – including uterine septum and non-patent fallopian tubes
  • Uterine fibroids and polyps
  • Uterine and ovarian cysts 

A new life, free from endometriosis

Cherie Ramirez struggled with endometriosis symptoms for over 25 years until she finally visited Dr. Schultz at Avista Adventist Hospital. Dr. Schultz and her fellow surgeons perform minimally invasive gynecologic surgeries, and gave Cherie the option to treat her condition with a minimally invasive hysterectomy. Cherie can now enjoy life without being controlled by endometriosis.

Pelvic Pain Solution

Less-invasive hysterectomy means women can stop suffering, and recover faster

After suffering for years with fibroid tumors and the pain, bloating, and constant pelvic pressure those growing tumors caused, Donna Davis finally said “enough.”

A marathoner and professional fitness trainer, Davis says that for her, the turning point came when she could barely run anymore. The fibroids pushing on her bladder made her constantly feel she had to urinate. “It got so I had to plan every run around trips to the bathroom. I’d have to go (to the bathroom) every mile.”
