Caroline Peterson, D.O. is a Board Certified Ob/Gyn Surgeon with 25 years of experience in Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery utilizing minimally invasive techniques and advancements. She has advanced skills in Laser Surgery for the treatment of Endometriosis and works closely with companies such as Ethicon to continue to develop surgical products that are conducive to minimally invasive surgery. She began this innovative work early in her career as a Senior Resident where she received first place Nationally in the Resident Thesis Award competition from the American College of Osteopathic Obstetricians and Gynecologist , for her work in developing advanced techniques in Laparoscopic assisted vaginal hysterectomy.

During this time she worked with Ethicon to develop and advance their stapling device which for 15 years, advanced hysterectomies from abdominal to laparoscopic approach in the field of general pulmonary and ob/gyn cases. More recently she has done the same with their vessel sealing and separating device.

Dr. Peterson’s concern with her patients outcomes and post-operative pain relief led her to work with I Flow Corporation to develop a new method for use of the On-Q Post-Operative Pain Relief System in Advanced Laparoscopic procedures, which is a cost-effective and narcotic free pain relief system applied directly to the surgical site. By utilizing this pain relief “ball” in her advanced Lapaoscopic procedures, Dr. Peterson’s patients receive the most advanced pain relief system to assist patients in their recovery to resume the health and quality of life they deserve.

Her commitment to having this technology available to Women and their Surgeons, globally has led her to produce educational videos on the technology.
