TUBAL LIGATION

TUBAL LIGATION IS A SURGICAL PROCEDURE WHEREIN THE FALLOPIAN TUBES ARE SEVERED. THIS IS A METHOD OF BIRTH CONTROL, WHICH WORKS BY PROHIBITING THE EGG FROM BEING FERTILIZED AND REACHING THE UTERUS.

REMOVAL OF OVARY

SURGERY TO REMOVE EITHER ONE OR BOTH OVARIES DUE TO A MEDICAL CONDITION OR COMPLICATION SUCH AS CANCER OR PRE-CANCER OR CANCER RISK-REDUCTION, ABSCESS (A PUSS-FILLED POCKET), ENDOMETRIOSIS, CYSTS, OR WHEN AN OVARY BECOMES TWISTED – THIS IS CALLED AN OVARIAN TORSION.

MYOMECTOMY

A MYOMECTOMY IS A SURGICAL PROCEDURE TO REMOVE FIBROIDS ON, INSIDE, OR AROUND THE UTERUS. FIBROIDS ARE COMMON AND NON-CANCEROUS GROWTHS OF TISSUE. OFTEN THIS TISSUE BECOMES PAINFUL OR CAN INTERFERE WITH SUCCESSFUL CONCEPTION.

D&C

DILATION AND CURETTAGE (D&C) IS A PROCEDURE TO REMOVE TISSUE FROM INSIDE THE UTERUS. D&C IS USED TO TREAT CONDITIONS SUCH AS HEAVY PERIODS, PERIODS THAT DO NOT END OR TO CLEAR THE LINING OF THE UTERUS AFTER A MISCARRIAGE.

ABLATION

ENDOMETRIAL ABLATION IS A PROCEDURE THAT PERMANENTLY DAMAGES THE LINING OF THE UTERUS WITH THE GOAL OF LIGHTENING, OR COMPLETELY STOPPING, MENSTRUAL FLOW (A PERSON’S PERIOD).

HYSTERECTOMY

HYSTERECTOMY IS THE COMPLETE OR PARTIAL REMOVAL OF THE UTERUS AND OVARIES. IT IS POSSIBLE DURING A HYSTERECTOMY THAT A PHYSICIAN MAY CHOSE TO LEAVE ONE OR BOTH OVARIES AND ONLY REMOVE THE UTERUS. A COMPLETE HYSTERECTOMY REMOVES EVERYTHING PLUS THE CERVIX (THE OPENING TO THE UTERUS). A HYSTERECTOMY MAY BE PERFORMED DUE TO FIBROIDS, BLEEDING, UTERINE PROLAPSE (WHEN THE UTERUS EXITS THE BODY THROUGH THE CERVIX), ENDOMETRIOSIS, OR OTHER PROBLEMS.

DIAGNOSTIC LAPAROSCOPY

A DIAGNOSTIC LAPAROSCOPY ALLOWS A PHYSICIAN TO LOOK INSIDE THE BODY TO DETERMINE CAUSE FOR A SPECIFIC SYMPTOM OR SET OF SYMPTOMS. THIS MAY BE USED TO DIAGNOSE A PROBLEM OR TO ALSO TREAT THE CAUSE OF SYMPTOMS, SHOULD IT BE NECESSARY.

OVARIAN CYST REMOVAL

SURGERY TO REMOVE AN OVARIAN CYST CAN INCLUDE REMOVING ONE OR MANY CYSTS FROM ONE OR BOTH OVARIES. CYSTS CAN BE ANY SIZE AND MAY OR NOT CAUSE PROBLEMS. IF A CYST BECOMES PAINFUL OR INTERFERES WITH DAILY LIVING, OR BECOMING PREGNANT, THEN IT WILL BE REMOVED THROUGH SURGERY. CYSTS MAY ALSO BE REMOVED IF A PHYSICIAN SUSPECTS THE CYST MAY BE, OR MAY BECOME CANCEROUS.

BARTHOLIN CYST REMOVAL

THE REMOVAL OF A BARTHOLIN GLAND CYST IS A MINOR PROCEDURE. A BARTHOLIN CYST IS A PUSS-FILL OR FLUID-FILLED SAC UNDER THE SKIN NEAR THE LABIA. CYSTS CAN GO AWAY ON THEIR OWN, BUT IF THEY BECOME SENSITIVE OR PAINFUL, THEN A PHYSICIAN WILL DECIDE TO LANCE OR RUPTURE THE CYST TO DRAIN THE FLUID OR INFECTION. CYSTS ARE DANGEROUS TO OPEN AT HOME BECAUSE OF THE INCREASED RISK OF INFECTION OR BLEEDING.

LABIAL REPAIR

THE LABIA ARE A PART OF THE VULVA, WHICH IS A PART OF THE EXTERNAL FEMALE REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM. LABIA REPAIR CAN BE DONE FOR MANY REASONS RANGING FROM ADHESIONS, INJURY, TO ADDRESS PAINFUL INTERCOURSE OR DAMAGE FROM CHILDBIRTH.

BLADDER SLING

A BLADDER SLING IS A MEDICAL DEVICE USED TO HELP CONTROL URINARY INCONTINENCE, WHICH IS THE LEAKING OF URINE, OR THE INABILITY TO HOLD URINE IN FOR LONGER PERIODS OF TIME. AGE, ATHLETICS, INJURY, AND CHILDBIRTH ARE COMMON CAUSES FOR STRESS INCONTINENCE – WHEN COMMON ACTIONS, SUCH AS RUNNING, SNEEZING, LAUGHING, OR JUMPING CAUSE URINE TO EXIT THE BODY. DURING THIS PROCEDURE, THE SURGEON USES A SLING MADE FROM TISSUE OR MEDICAL MATERIAL. THEY PLACE THIS SLING UNDER THE TUBE THROUGH WHICH URINE PASSES. THIS SLING IS LIKE A HAMMOCK THAT SUPPORTS THE URETHRA AND BLADDER TO PREVENT LEAKING.
