Board Certified in Obstetrics & Gynecology, Dr. Evelyn Felluca has 20 years experience. She founded Perfectly Female Woman’s Health Care, serves on the Executive Board at the Reston Surgery Center and the Board of Trustees at Reston Hospital. The Discovery Channel recently hosted her in “Little People, Big Pregnancy”.
“I love what I do! I relive the miracle of birth as well as face the challenges inherent with providing the latest in minimally invasive procedures to my patients.” Her passion for minimally invasive approaches started during residency at Maryland General Hospital in Baltimore, when vaginal procedures were in their prime and laparoscopy in its infancy. Technology has allowed for better laparoscopic and hysteroscopic devices. Ultimately, robotic surgery provides 3D HD, which allows surgeons unparalleled manual dexterity and control. ‘If a patient has to undergo major surgery, why wouldn’t they want the least invasive approach paired with excellent results?” Outpatient hysteroscopic removal of polyps, fibroids and ablations help control menstrual abnormalities, vaginal procedures treat prolapse and laparoscopy facilitates ovarian cystectomy, endometriosis and hysterectomy procedures. While most gynecologists still perform open procedures, among advanced laparoscopic surgeons, many cases are performed minimally invasively with smaller incisions, less postoperative infections, less discomfort and a faster recovery.
As a highly skilled laparoscopic surgeon, Dr. Felluca is also leading the way for gynecologic robotic cases at Reston Hospital and is up for the challenge of providing the latest in minimally invasive procedures for her patients so that they can get back to living their lives. Dr. Felluca has been named one of the Top Doctors in Northern Virginia Magazine and Washingtonian.
