Gynecology surgeries include any surgical procedure that is used to treat an issue that affects the female reproductive system. Some common gynecological surgeries include:
Today, most gynecological surgeries can be completed using minimally-invasive techniques, including techniques that use small external incisions and techniques that can be performed through the vagina without any external incisions.
Endometrial ablation is a minimally-invasive procedure that uses intense heat to destroy the lining of the uterus in women who are experiencing extremely heavy bleeding, usually as a result of menopause-related changes.
Essure is a permanent form of birth control that uses tiny inserts placed into the fallopian tubes. The inserts promote the formation of a natural barrier that prevents the eggs and sperm from meeting so fertilization and pregnancy cannot occur. The Essure procedure uses minimally-invasive techniques that can be performed in about 10 minutes. Once the implants are in place, it takes about three months for the natural barrier to completely form, so another form of birth control must be used until then.
Vaginal prolapse is a condition that occurs when the tissues that normally support the vagina become damaged or weak, often as a result of a prior hysterectomy. Without proper support, the vagina “falls forward,” and in some cases, the top of the vagina may actually protrude, essentially turning the vagina inside out. Vaginal prolapse can cause significant pain and discomfort as well as an increased risk of infections. Prolapse issues can be treated using a sling device that helps support the vagina and hold it in its proper position.
