Surgical gynecology, as it name suggests, refers to surgery of the female reproductive system. Procedures that fall under this umbrella include incontinence, infertility, cancer and other ailments; however, some gynecological surgeries are performed electively.

Understanding Gynecological Surgeries

There are numerous gynecological surgeries. A general list includes:
Colporrhaphy

This surgery repairs the vaginal wall to repair hernias.

Dilation and Currettage (seen as “D&C”)

This surgery removes abnormal tissues in the uterus, abnormal uterine bleeding, or cancer.

Endometrial Ablation

This procedure removes the endometrium from the uterus, stopping or reducing heavy menstrual bleeding.

Hysterectomy

Hysterectomies remove the uterus in its entirety. Your doctor may also choose to remove one or both ovaries, and the fallopian tubes.

Oophorectomy

Also known as Ovariectomy, this surgery removes one or both ovaries.

Tubal Ligation

Colloquially known as ‘tying the tubes,” this surgery cuts, cauterizes or bands the fallopian tubes to prevent pregnancy. Tubal Ligation is a permanent form of birth control.
