SurgicalServices

Our two physicians, Dr. Scott Jennings and Dr. Ward Katsanis, are Board-Certified Gynecological Oncologists and practice surgery at Roper St. Francis Hospital in downtown Charleston and at the Trident Regional Medical Center in North Charleston.   Both Dr. Jennings and Dr. Katsanis are constantly honing and upgrading their skills to stay current with emerging surgical technologies.

Their desire to stay current with new medical techniques is evidenced by their early adoption of robot-assisted surgery.   Dr. Jennings and Dr. Katsanis are among the most experienced da Vinci Surgical teams in South Carolina!

In addition to robot-assisted surgery, both Dr. Jennings and Dr. Katsanis are experienced in other surgical options, including:


    Â» Advanced Surgery
    Â» Laparoscopy
    Â» LEEP
    Â» Biopsies
