Gynecologic surgery is surgery that occurs on any organ within your reproductive system including the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, or cervix. Some gynecologic surgeries target the urinary system since much of it is intertwined with your reproductive system.
Many gynecologic surgeries are more simple than they sound and can be done in your doctor’s office. Others require a referral to a specialist surgeon in a hospital.
There are many reasons why you may explore your options for gynecologic surgery or why your doctor might recommend that you get it. Not all reasons are medical necessities: some are personal preferences regarding fertility. Common reasons for gynecologic surgery include:
Your doctor may recommend surgery as part of your treatment, or you may inquire about certain procedures by choice, such as for birth control if you choose not to have children or are finished having children.
Dr. DeLeon’s Woman’s Health Care offers many gynecologic surgeries in the office for your convenience. They include:
A hysteroscopy allows your doctor to see the inside of your uterus and diagnose issues related to abnormal vaginal bleeding.
Similar to a hysteroscopy, a laparoscopy allows your doctor to view your pelvic organs by inserting a thin tube with a light and camera into your body by way of a small incision.
An oophorectomy is a surgical removal of your ovaries.
Tension-free vaginal tape (TVT) sling is a surgical insert that is used to treat urinary incontinence caused by a lack of strength in your pelvic muscles.
Anterior repair is a surgery that targets and strengthens the anterior (front) wall of your vagina. It’s used to alleviate the pressure that your bladder puts on your vaginal wall.
Vaginal reconstruction surgery is used to tighten your vagina after normal aging or childbirth. Some surgeons claim that it also restores sensitivity to the area. This surgery is usually performed due to the patient’s preference and is not a treatment for disease.
Bilateral tubal ligation (BTL) reversal is a procedure that restores your fertility after previously having your tubes tied.
