Adam Ofer, M.D.
Dr. Ofer is
recognized as a regional expert and thought leader in
gynecology and minimally-invasive surgical techniques and
serves as Director of
Gynecology at Norwalk Hospital.

specialized training and expertise in pelvic reconstruction and
Laparoscopic / da Vinci Surgery:
As an expert in advanced laparoscopic techniques, Dr. Ofer can offer his patients a great alternative to traditional laparotomy (a major incision on the abdomen). Dr. Ofer's technique for laparoscopy uses the smallest laparoscopic instruments available though small incisions which can often be made in natural creases of the body to avoid scars.
Dr. Ofer was one of the first surgeons in Connecticut to utilize the da Vinci surgical system and bring his patients the safest, most advanced surgical technology in the world. The da Vinci system enables complicated procedures to be done through several dime-size incisions. Miniature specialized instruments inserted through these incisions have greater maneuverability and precision than the human hand. Dr. Ofer controls these instruments while viewing the surgical field through a magnified, three-dimensional, high-definition video system. Smaller incisions and more precision translates into safer surgery with quicker recovery for Dr. Ofer’s patients. Dr. Ofer currently uses the da Vinci Robot for a variety of gynecologic procedures, including hysterectomy, myomectomy, and sacrocolpopexy for pelvic prolapse.
For women who seek to maintain their fertility or simply desire to preserve their uterus, Dr. Ofer is able to offer a variety of options, including endometrial ablation and da Vinci myomectomy. Many of Dr. Ofer's patients have been told by other physicians that hysterectomy is the only option. Those patients now live symptom-free while retaining their uterus.
Urogynecology & Pelvic Prolapse
Dr. Ofer runs the Bladder Dysfunction Program at The Avery Center. He has broad experience with diagnosis and treatment of overactive bladder, urinary stress incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. At our Westport location, Dr. Ofer uses state-of-the-art multi-channel urodynamics equipment to evaluate bladder function. His techniques for incontinence surgery allow most surgery to be done in an outpatient setting. Most patients are home within a few hours and back to work within a few days.
Dr. Ofer's approach to pelvic prolapse offers patients a variety of options with emphasis on minimal invasiveness and rapid recovery. All of the patient's concerns are addressed, which may include discomfort from prolapse, incontinence, lack of sexual satisfaction and / or cosmetic concerns. He has experience and expertise in pelvic reconstruction through vaginal and laparoscopic approaches, including da Vinci sacrocolpopexy.
Cosmetic procedures / sexual enhancement:
Sometimes changes that occur to the vagina and surrounding tissues, which can include enlargement of the labia, relaxation of the vaginal opening or scar tissue formation in the vaginal or clitoral area, can change the way you feel about yourself and may change the amount of satisfaction you and / or your partner achieve from intercourse and orgasm. Dr. Ofer specializes in techniques of labioplasty, vaginoplasty, perineoplasty and clitiroplasty that offer patients the best cosmetic results and enhanced sexual satisfaction. These are very individualized procedures based on the patient's problem and specific goals for results. After a thorough examination, Dr. Ofer will guide you through the various choices and realistic expectations for such procedures.
