Gynecologic surgeon Sandra Laveaux, MD, MPH
Sandra Laveaux, MD, MPH, provides expert care for women at all life stages, from puberty through menopause. She specializes in the medical and surgical treatment of abnormal uterine bleeding, uterine fibroids, endometriosis and chronic pelvic pain.

Her fellowship training in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery provided Dr. Laveaux with specialized training and expertise in the field of advanced laparoscopy and robotics. She favors a minimally invasive approach to the care of her patients, understanding that this approach leads to less pain, shorter length of hospital stay, faster recovery, improved cosmetics and greater patient satisfaction.

Her surgical areas of expertise include advanced operative office hysteroscopy, as well as vaginal, laparoscopic, robotic and complex open surgical techniques.

Dr. Laveaux is a funded clinical researcher and is well published. She has co-authored multiple book chapters on robotic surgery in benign gynecology. Her research interests include the role of technology in women’s health, as well as the local and global impact of technologic advances in the management of abnormal uterine bleeding, uterine fibroids, endometriosis and pelvic pain.
