As a certified fellow of the American Academy of Gynecologic Laparoscopists (AAGL) and Society of Reproductive Surgeons (SRS), Dr. Morozov has a particular interest in minimally invasive surgery and techniques that allow minimal post-operative pain, small and barely detectable incisions, and much shorter recovery time.

Dr. Morozov offers the services of the minimally invasive gynecology to his patients. Treatment of abnormal uterine bleeding and hysteroscopy (the visualization of the inside of the uterus), cervical stenosis, laparoscopic presacral neurectomy and sacrocolpopexy (treatment of the prolapse of the vagina) are among his areas of expertise and training of particular interest.
