Gynecological surgery refers to any surgery that treats complications with the female reproductive system. That includes complications with the following organs:
Gynecological surgery can also treat complications involving your urinary tract and bladder. There are many types of gynecological surgery, some of which are minimally invasive and don’t involve any abdominal incisions at all.
After a physical exam, pelvic exam, and various tests like ultrasound imaging, your provider at Surgery of Tomorrow, LLC, might recommend gynecological surgery as part of your treatment. In most cases, the team recommends surgery only when more conservative treatments are not an option or if they prove to be unsuccessful.
Surgery of Tomorrow, LLC, offers numerous types of gynecological surgery. After evaluating your condition and discussing your personal preferences, they might recommend:
Minimally invasive options often involve using a laparoscope, which is a lighted telescope-like instrument that your surgeon uses to view your internal organs through only a small incision or your vagina.
Your provider can tell you the exact type of surgery and technique they use before the date of surgery. They can also answer all of your questions about the preparation, the surgery itself, and the recovery.
Each gynecological surgery is different and requires different steps for preparation. If your surgery involves general anesthesia, which renders you unconscious, you may need to take extra steps to prepare. You should arrange a ride to the appointment and back home again after your surgery if you’re going under general anesthesia.
In many cases, you may also need to adjust certain medications or stop taking them before gynecological surgery. During your consultation, you should bring a list of your current medications and supplements, so your surgeon knows what you take. They might also give you additional medications to take leading up to your surgery, like antibiotics to prevent an infection.
If you smoke, it’s always a good idea to stop before surgery. Your provider may ask you to take other steps before gynecological surgery that can greatly reduce your risk of complications and set you up for a smooth recovery.
