What is Gynecologic Surgery?

Gynecologic surgery is surgery performed on a woman’s pelvic region. It is usually performed by an OB/GYN and can involve the bladder, rectum, or reproductive organs. Surgery in this area may be performed for many reasons, but the most common procedures include:
  • Hysterectomy
  • Fibroid removal
  • Treatment of endometriosis or other heavy bleeding
  • Cancer treatment, including cervical, uterine, and ovarian cancers
  • Removal of ovarian cysts
  • Infertility treatment
  • Treatment for incontinence
  • Sterilization or ‘tube-tying’
  • Surgery for pelvic organ prolapse
  • Repair of vaginal tears

More and more, gynecologic surgery is moving towards the use of minimally invasive surgery. Minimally invasive surgery uses several small incisions and tiny tools and scopes to perform the operation, rather than one large opening. While it is not appropriate in every case, minimally invasive surgery can lead to less scarring, less blood loss, faster recovery, and a lower chance for infection. Minimally invasive gynecologic surgery may be performed with a laparoscope, a thin tube with a camera on the end that allows the surgeon to see inside the body. It may also be performed robotically, using even smaller tools and cameras that a surgeon controls from a computer. Robotic surgery allows even better vision, precision, and control than laparoscopic surgery.

Over the course of a lifetime, many women need pelvic surgery to stay healthy. Qualified gynecologic surgeons will have the right tools at their disposal to provide care with a minimum of discomfort.
