Gynecologic surgical procedures are surgeries that involve the female reproductive system, including the uterus, ovaries, and fallopian tubes. These procedures may be performed for a variety of reasons, including to diagnose or treat gynecologic conditions, to address infertility, or to prevent cancer.
Some common gynecologic surgical procedures include:
Hysterectomy: A hysterectomy is the surgical removal of the uterus. It may be performed to treat conditions such as uterine fibroids, endometriosis, or uterine cancer.
Oophorectomy: An oophorectomy is the surgical removal of one or both ovaries. It may be performed to treat ovarian cancer or other ovarian conditions, or as part of a hysterectomy.
Tubal ligation: Tubal ligation is a surgical procedure in which the fallopian tubes are sealed or cut to prevent pregnancy. It is a permanent form of birth control.
Laparoscopy: Laparoscopy is a surgical procedure in which a small incision is made in the abdomen and a laparoscope (a thin, lighted tube) is inserted to view the reproductive organs. It may be used to diagnose or treat gynecologic conditions.
Gynecologic surgical procedures can be performed using various techniques, including traditional open surgery or minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery. The specific technique used will depend on the type and complexity of the procedure and the individual patient’s needs.
