Suketu M. Mansuria, MD

  • Associate Professor, Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Sciences
  • Assistant Director, Gynecologic Minimally Invasive Surgery

Dr. Mansuria finished advanced training in gynecologic minimally invasive surgery at Magee Womens Hospital in 2004. Since then his practice has been completely devoted to the care of women with gynecologic conditions that may require surgery. He specializes in the treatment of pelvic pain, endometriosis, fibroids, heavy bleeding, cysts, and other conditions that may require minimally invasive surgery. Minimally invasive surgery (laparoscopic surgery) allows his patients to have a quicker and less painful recovery in an outpatient setting. He is also actively involved in teaching other surgeons these techniques to allow more women to benefit from the advantages of minimally invasive surgery over traditional open surgery (which involves large, painful incisions). As a specialist, he is able to complete over 99% of cases laparoscopically-even those with severe adhesions, large fibroids, or severe endometriosis.
