Gynecological Surgery

What is gynecological surgery?

Gynecological surgery is a group of surgical procedures that involve your reproductive organs. The experienced team at Women's Preventive Healthcare specializes in all types of female surgery. 

They take a patient-centered approach to care and work one on one with you to design a treatment plan that best fits your needs. When it comes to gynecological surgery, your OB/GYN provides comprehensive surgical care. 

They review the details of your surgical plan with you, including how to prepare for your procedure, what happens during surgery, and your expected course of recovery. 

What are the types of gynecological surgery?

The team at Women's Preventive Healthcare performs many kinds of gynecological surgery. They may perform some procedures at the office and others at a surgical center.

Some of the types of gynecological surgery include:

  • Endometrial ablation for heavy menstrual bleeding
  • Hysterectomy to remove the uterus
  • Incontinence surgery
  • Bladder repair
  • Removal of ovarian cysts
  • Myomectomy to remove uterine fibroids
  • Tubal ligation 
  • Loop electrical excision procedure (LEEP) to treat precancerous cervical lesions
  • Oophorectomy to remove the ovaries
  • Colposcopy to evaluate the cervix
  • Hysteroscopy to evaluate the uterus
  • Dilation and curettage
  • Cervical, endometrial, or uterine biopsy

Some of these procedures help your doctor to diagnose a female health problem while other surgeries treat the gynecological issue. 

How is gynecological surgery performed?

The experts at Women's Preventive Healthcare are skilled surgeons, and they use the most advanced surgical tools and techniques so you get the best outcome. When possible, the team uses minimally invasive procedures, such as:

Laparoscopic surgery

During laparoscopic surgery, your surgeon uses small incisions, slender instruments, and a laparoscope to perform your gynecological surgery. 

The laparoscope is a surgical camera that allows your surgeon to see the surgical area without having to make a large open incision through your abdomen. With laparoscopic surgery, you can expect small scars, less pain, and a faster recovery. 

Vaginal surgery

During vaginal surgery, your surgeon gains access to your reproductive organs through your vagina. This is the least invasive type of gynecological surgery. 

Hysteroscopic surgery

During hysteroscopic surgery, your provider at Women's Preventive Healthcare uses a hysteroscope to view your cervix and uterus. Like the laparoscope, the hysteroscope provides detailed images of your reproductive organs.

They may perform hysteroscopic surgery to diagnose a gynecological condition or to remove fibroids or polyps.
