If you have certain conditions, our Austin obgyns may recommend gynecological surgery
When more conservative treatments fail, our Austin obgyns may recommend gynecological surgery. Our experienced obgyns are here to highlight some of the typical conditions that may require surgery. Surgical techniques have advanced beyond traditional, open surgery. Today, almost all the surgeries we perform are minimally invasive procedures.
Which conditions might require gynecological surgery?
Before recommending gynecological surgery, our Austin obgyns typically begin a treatment plan with conservative options, including lifestyle changes or medication. If these options don’t deliver results, our physicians may recommend a surgical solution. Here are some examples where surgery may be the most appropriate choice.
- Uterine fibroids that are causing symptoms like abnormal uterine bleeding, anemia, pelvic pain or fertility problems
- Endometriosis that is affecting your ability to conceive or is causing symptoms like severe pain that can’t be resolved without gynecological surgery
There are a variety of surgical options
Our surgeons are skilled in the most-current surgical techniques. All of our experienced surgeons are trained and certified in da Vinci® robotic surgery, the preferred method for most of our major surgeries. Minimally invasive surgery, including laparoscopy and hysteroscopy, offers women faster recovery, fewer complications and smaller scars. You and your physician will discuss which type of gynecological surgery is right for your condition and healthcare needs.
- Laparoscopic surgery is a type of minimally invasive surgery where the surgeon inserts a thin instrument called a laparoscope with either a camera or surgical instruments attached into three to five small incisions to perform diagnostic procedures and surgery.
- Hysteroscopy is a type of minimally invasive surgery where our surgeon inserts a hysteroscope with either a camera or instruments into the uterus through the vagina to diagnose and treat conditions surgically.
- Hysterectomy comes in three types, including a vaginal hysterectomy that requires no abdominal incisions, a laparoscopic hysterectomy and a robotic hysterectomy.
