Arthur Greenwood, MD | Specialties

Hysterectomies

I specialize in minimally invasive surgery and have additional training in Single Incision Laparoscopic Hysterectomy. I brought leading edge technology to the operating room utilizing 3D laparoscopic technology. Using 3D single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery we are able to perform minimally invasive hysterectomies of large fibroid uteri that would otherwise require five abdominal skin incisions with the DaVinci robot or one large vertical incision for an abdominal hysterectomy. My technique reduces post operative pain and recovery time and reduces
the risk of skin infections and hernias by reducing the number and size of incisions. My goal is to correct patients’ problems and help
return them to a normal lifestyle as quickly as possible.

Obstetrics

Obstetrics can be the most rewarding part of my work. I am dedicated to reducing the maternal morbidity and mortality that has been increasing in our country. I believe in order to achieve this goal I must carefully listen to my patients and treat them as individuals rather than a case from a textbook. Individualized risk Assessment and individualized care is critical to reduce pregnancy complications in this country.

For my pregnant patients I do everything I can to allow for natural childbirth and only step in to avoid injury to the mother or her baby. I understand that the birth process is not about me, but rather it is a once and a lifetime experience for the parents. I’m am blessed to be allowed to experience their joy.

Menopause

I also recognize menopause to be a life altering condition that equally deserves attention. I benefited from training at Wake Forest Baptist Health where our Chairman was a leader in the treatment of and research on menopause.
