Meet Dr. Ann Lutich
Gynecologic Surgery Specialist

When Ann Lutich, M.D., does minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery on patients who have complex ovarian cysts, fibroids, or endometriosis, she sometimes uses a robot for an assistant. With its perfectly steady “hands” and high magnification, the robot allows her to work with a delicate touch and in fine detail. Laparoscopic and robotic surgery offer less blood loss and better wound healing, especially in larger women.

The most satisfying thing to me is being part of patients’ lives and seeing them year after year – knowing how they’re doing, and how their families are doing.”

“The surgeon causes the robotic arms and instruments to move in the direction that he or she wants,” Dr. Lutich explains. “The beauty of it is that the patient has minimal pain afterward and is typically able to go home that very day.”

Even without robotic assistance, Dr. Lutich performs most hysterectomies through the laparoscope’s four small incisions. “Women are able to get back to their usual business within a couple of weeks,” she says. “This is not your mother's hysterectomy.”

She should know: Dr. Lutich has practiced in the Dallas area for more than 20 years, and the mothers of many of her patients were once her patients, too. “I'm starting to see the baby girls that I delivered as patients, which is very rewarding,” Dr. Lutich says. “I love being part of the Dallas community.”

In addition to advanced gynecologic surgery, Dr. Lutich offers an array of alternatives to surgery. She also practices obstetrics and offers hormone evaluations for women who are experiencing or are past menopause.
