Gynecological Surgery

Gynecological surgery is any surgical procedure that is performed on a woman’s reproductive organs. These gynecological procedures, which can be minor or major, are designed to improve function, relieve pain or other symptoms, and help women live longer, healthier and happier lives.

You can trust the gynecologic surgeons at UK Women’s Health OB-GYN to combine the most advanced medical technology with innovative surgical techniques to provide women with gynecological surgery that is on the forefront of patient care.

Why You Might Need Gynecological Surgery

Women may need surgery from an OB-GYN at different times in their lives for many different reasons. A younger woman may need ovarian cysts or fibroids removed to be able to get pregnant. An older woman may need a hysterectomy. Surgery can be used to address pelvic pain from endometriosis and abnormal bleeding in the uterine cavity. Surgery may be also needed to remove a failed pregnancy or to prevent another pregnancy from happening. Gynecological cancer is another common reason for surgery.
