Home Obstetric & Gynaecology Gynecological Surgery

What is Gynecological Surgery?

Gynecological surgery refers to any surgical procedure involving the structures or organs of the female pelvic region, such as the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, vagina, and vulva. Gynecological surgeries range between minimally invasive and fully invasive, depending on the health condition. Some of these procedures are performed on an out-patient basis, while others require a stay in the hospital. 

Health Conditions Treated with Gynecology Surgery

This surgery can help address various gynecological conditions faced by women. Examples of health conditions that can be treated with gynecological surgery include:

  • Ovarian cysts
  • Cancer
  • Fibroids
  • Endometriosis
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Chronic pelvic pain
  • Uterine prolapse
  • Bleeding disorder

Benefits of Gynecological Surgery

Gynecological surgeries aim to improve women’s health and well-being. The type of benefit one gets from this treatment depends primarily on the condition being treated and the type of surgery. For instance, removing a cancerous tumor will help prevent cancer progression in the future. Many surgeries are performed to relieve pain in the pelvis region or treat incontinence. Some gynecological surgeries are performed to diagnose other conditions, such as procedures to check the uterus or bladder for infections or other problems.

Common Gynecological Surgeries

Different gynecological surgeries are performed to treat various health issues. Let’s have a brief overview of the most common surgical procedures.

Hysterectomy

Hysterectomy is a procedure that involves removing the uterus surgically. This surgical procedure also stops periods if menopause has not already occurred. Women aged 40-50 are the most common recipients of this treatment.

Oophorectomy

The surgical procedure involving the removal of one or both ovaries is called oophorectomy. This surgery may be performed to treat:

  • Tubo-ovarian abscess
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Noncancerous tumors or cysts
  • Endometriosis
  • Ovarian or breast cancer prevention
  • Ovarian torsion

Endometrial Ablation

This minimally invasive surgical procedure helps treat heavy menstrual bleeding. This procedure involves eliminating or destroying the endometrium tissue in the uterus lining. Since this tissue causes bleeding, removing or destroying it may bring menstrual bleeding down to normal levels.

Myomectomy

Myomectomy is a surgical treatment to eliminate a noncancerous growth called uterine fibroid, also known as leiomyomas. This tissue formation occurs in the uterus. Although fibroids can develop anytime, they most commonly develop during the childbearing years.

During a myomectomy, the surgeon removes fibroids and reconstructs the uterus.

Laparoscopy

Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure during which a surgeon makes small incisions in the abdominal wall to pass monitoring instruments and surgical tools into the abdominal cavity. These components can be maneuvered through a remote control system, allowing the surgeon to monitor, access, and operate on the target organ or area.

This surgical technique helps evaluate the pelvic regions, such as the ovaries, uterus, and fallopian tubes. The laparoscope (miniature camera) sends the live feed to a video monitor, from where the surgeon evaluates the problem and uses remote controls to perform surgery.

What are Minimally Invasive Gynecological Surgeries?

Minimally invasive gynecological surgeries primarily help treat noncancerous gynecologic conditions or diagnose severe health conditions. It is worth noting that the decision between minimally invasive and traditional surgery depends on the specific case, including the patient’s condition, the extent of the disease, and other health factors. Illnesses treated with minimally invasive procedures usually include:

  • Pelvic pain
  • Irregular menstrual periods
  • Heavy menstrual periods
  • Endometriosis
  • Ovarian cysts

A minimally invasive surgical procedure is generally performed in an outpatient surgical setting. These procedures have been shown to deliver a positive outcome with less pain, fast recovery, and more convenience. On top of that, these procedures are more cost-effective than their invasive counterparts.
