Fertility Enhancing Surgery

At times, specific conditions can contribute to a patient’s infertility and may require surgical intervention. Such conditions include:

  • Tubal blockage/obstruction
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Endometriosis
  • Pelvic adhesions
  • Uterine or vaginal anatomic variants
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Intra-uterine adhesions

Dr. Behera specializes in minimally invasive surgical methods to enhance the patient’s fertility. She is highly skilled in the area of advanced laparoscopic surgery, operative hysteroscopy, and robotic surgery. Minimally invasive surgery offers a number of advantages over traditional surgery. They include:

  • Shorter recovery times
  • Shorter inpatient time
  • Smaller incisions for better cosmetic appearance

Procedures that Dr. Behera performs include:

  • Laparoscopic-assisted robotic myomectomy (removal of fibroids)
  • Laparoscopic / robotic tubal reanastomosis (tubal ligation reversal)
  • Laser laparoscopy for treatment of endometriosis (mild to moderate)
  • Laparoscopic removal of benign ovarian or tubal cysts / masses
  • Operative and diagnostic hysteroscopy

In fact, Dr. Behera was the first to conduct a robotic tubal reanastomosis at Scottsdale Healthcare, Shea Hospital.

Dr. Behera teaches many surgical courses in advanced fertility preserving surgery techniques throughout the country. She has been selected as a member of Scottsdale Shea’s Center of Excellence for Minimally Invasive Gynecological Surgery (COEMIG). Prior to that, she has held numerous prestigious surgical appointments, one being Clinical Director for the Center of Fibroid Biology and Therapy at Duke University Medical Center.
