Gynecological surgery is surgery on the female reproductive system. It is typically performed by a gynecologist.

Minimally Invasive Surgery

The surgeries below use a minimally invasive approach. Unlike traditional open surgery, minimally invasive surgery uses small incisions, resulting in faster recovery and less pain.

  • Pelvic reconstructive surgery (laparoscopic and robotic-assisted) 
  • Hysterectomy (laparoscopic and robotic-assisted) 
  • Myomectomy (laparoscopic and robotic-assisted)
  • Tension-free vaginal tape for treating urinary incontinence
  • Vesicovaginal fistula repair for treating urinary incontinence
  • Endometrial ablation
  • Resection of endometriosis (laparoscopic)
  • Reversal of tubal ligation
  • Cervical cerclage / cervical stitch (laparoscopic and robotic-assisted)

Many gynecological procedures are performed laparoscopically. To see inside the abdomen, the surgeon inserts a small telescope into the abdomen through a small incision. Tiny surgical instruments inserted through other small incisions repair the problem.

Minimally invasive surgery may also be robotic-assisted. As a result of technological advancements in surgery, even the most complex benign and malignant gynecologic conditions can now be treated in a minimally invasive fashion.
