Gynecology Surgery

Gynecology Surgery

As a woman, you may need surgery on the female pelvic region at some point in your life. Gynecology surgery can include procedures on the cervix, uterus, ovaries, vagina, vulva, or fallopian tubes. You might also have bladder issues that can be resolved with gynecology surgery.

A quality Lifeline Medical Associates women’s healthcare provider can help you better understand the type of surgery that is best for you in your situation. The physician will also answer any questions you may have and will fully explain all the benefits and risks of the recommended gynecology surgery.

Types of gynecology surgeries

You may need surgery for fibroids, ovarian cysts, pelvic inflammatory disease, uterine prolapse, endometriosis, or abnormal bleeding. Some of the types of surgery your physician may recommend include:

  • Hysterectomy: A surgery to remove the uterus, a hysterectomy might be recommended for you if you have fibroid-related bleeding or pressure. A total hysterectomy removes the entire uterus, including the cervix. Removal of the upper part of the uterus is called a supra-cervical hysterectomy.
  • Myomectomy: This surgery removes uterine fibroids that may be causing you problems, but it keeps the uterus itself intact.
  • Colposcopy:If your physician discovers issues, such as abnormal cells, during your pelvic exam or Pap test, they may recommend this procedure which will enable them to see changes in your vaginal and cervical tissues.
  • Bladder support surgery: This type of surgery is performed to improve support for the bladder and for the valve mechanism at the bladder neck. A cystoscopy will enable the surgeon to see inside your urinary tract to check for stones, growths, or other issues.

Gynecology surgery may also be recommended for treatment of cancers that affect women, including ovarian, uterine, and cervical cancer.
