Gynecological Surgery Q & A

What are some examples of gynecological surgery?

Gynecologic surgery includes procedures that alter or remove any portion of a woman’s reproductive system, as well as some procedures that affect the bladder. These procedures are common, and many women will require some form of gynecologic surgery at some point in life. 

Some of the more common types of gynecologic surgery include:

  • Tubal ligation (sterilization)
  • Hysterectomy
  • Uterine fibroid removal
  • Endometriosis treatment
  • Polyp removal
  • Cyst removal
  • Pelvic floor reconstruction
  • Treatment for ectopic pregnancy
  • Treatment for abnormally heavy menstrual bleeding

In short, any procedure that involves altering your reproductive organs or surrounding tissues is a form of gynecologic surgery. 

How do I decide whether to move forward with gynecological surgery?

When your women’s health specialist identifies a cause for concern, you discuss all available treatment options in detail. If surgery is a good approach for your needs, you explore various techniques and learn more about what to expect in terms of timelines and recovery. 

There is never any pressure to choose one approach over another. Your gynecologist is here to act as a supportive and experienced advisor, a partner in your women’s health journey. You’re always encouraged to ask questions as they arise. 

Are there ways to ease the recovery process after gynecological surgery?

The best way to ease your recovery is to adhere to all post-procedure care instructions provided by your specialist. This includes taking any antibiotics exactly as prescribed. 

You should also try to have a friend or loved one come by to help out for a day or two after your procedure. Give your body a chance to rest and adjust, and let someone else handle the heavy lifting and household tasks for a bit. 

If you’re a smoker, finding a way to quit the habit for good before your surgery is an outstanding way to promote healthy healing. Smoking robs your body of proper circulation which is an essential part of the healing process. Quitting will deliver a wide range of health benefits, including faster healing.
