The Hospitals of Providence is now offering transvaginal natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery, better known as vNOTES, a new type of minimally invasive hysterectomy procedure that is scarless and almost painless. The procedure is being performed by Dr. George Iskander, an obstetrician and gynecologist with Texas Tech Physicians of El Paso, at the Transmountain Campus. Iskander is one of only 20 physicians in the country certified to perform the procedure, according to a news release. The robotic procedure allows a hysterectomy to be performed without any abdominal incisions on the patient.
