Dr. Eric Heegaard is a Minnesota based Gynecologic Surgeon whose surgical practice has been on the forefront of minimally invasive gynecology for over 2 decades. He was one of the first surgeons in the twin cities to perform a laparoscopic subtotal hysterectomy (removing the uterus while leaving the cervix in place) and was the first surgeon at Fairview Southdale Hospital in Edina, Minnesota to perform a total laparoscopic hysterectomy using the Davinci Robot. Dr. Heegaard was one of the first gynecologic surgeons in Minnesota credentialed to use the Davinci Robot and has served as a proctor for other gynecologists training to use the Davinci system.
His clinical passion is in the diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis and his mission is to increase awareness among patients, the general public, and the medical community of this condition.
Dr. Heegaard’s interest in minimally invasive management of fibroids (benign uterine tumors) led him to start the Midwest Fibroid Treatment Center, the first of its kind in Minnesota. His expertise also includes treatment of endometriosis, fibroids, infertility, bladder incontinence and cosmetic gynecology.
