The Value of Hysteroscopy as a Diagnostic Tool for Women with Suspected Endometrial Cancer
Presented by: Yelena Havryliuk, MD, FACOG
Dr. Yelena Havryliuk is a Board Certified Obstetrician and Gynecologist. She received her medical degree at the University of Medicine and Dentistry – Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and completed her residency training at the New York-Presbyterian Hospital Weill Cornell Medical Center. She initiated her career at New York University Langone Medical Center, where her career focus was on benign gynecological conditions and women’s health. In 2011 she returned to New York-Presbyterian Hospital Weill Cornell Medical Center to join the faculty as an Assistant Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
Dr. Havryliuk provides care in all aspects of gynecology and women’s health including the management of contraception, abnormal pap smears, endometriosis, abnormal uterine bleeding, hormone replacement therapy, as well as preventative care. In addition, Dr. Havryliuk has a special interest in the surgical management of fibroids and adnexal masses. When indicated, she strives to offer all of her patients minimally invasive therapy using robotically assisted surgery. Robotically assisted surgery provides the surgeon increased precision and control, allowing for the treatment of complex pathologies using small incisions. As compared to conventional surgery, it provides patients with less post-operative pain and enables a faster recovery.
Dr. Havryliuk has also fostered collaborations with other departments within the medical center in order to offer a multidisciplinary and comprehensive approach. This is particularly true with regards to the treatment of fibroids, where she performs complex hysteroscopic resections of fibroids following uterine fibroid embolization, performed by the department of Interventional Radiology.
Lastly, Dr. Havryliuk’s goal is to always establish an environment that is conducive to an open and clear dialogue with her patients. Her belief is that patients do better when they fully understand their condition and are empowered and confident through a thoughtful and well-informed decision-making process.
