If you are anxious by the idea of having surgery, you are not alone. Many people get nervous about the idea of surgery, especially if it is their first time. At OB-GYN Women’s Centre of Lakewood Ranch, we do all we can to make you feel confident about your surgical experience. Receiving surgery is a big decision and often unavoidable. You should feel comfortable and assured every step of the way.

OB-GYN Surgical Procedures

We offer a number of surgeries for women to treat a wide range of gynecological issues. Some of the most common surgeries our physicians perform include:

Abdominal Hysterectomy / Oophorectomy: These are two of the most common surgical procedures performed on women to remove either the uterus (hysterectomy) or the ovaries (oophorectomy). Hysterectomies and Oophorectomies are performed to treat a variety of medical conditions, but most commonly cancer.

Bartholin’s Gland Excision: Painful cysts can grow in a woman’s Bartholin’s Glands, located near the opening of a woman’s vagina. These cysts sometimes have to be removed surgically when traditional methods of removal do not help.

Endometrial Ablation: This procedure is done as an alternative to a hysterectomy for women who experience abnormally heavy periods.

Loop Electrode Excision Procedure: Also referred to as LEEP, is a procedure that is used to remove abnormal or cancerous cells from a woman’s cervix or vulva. The procedure uses a wire loop heated by an electric current to remove the abnormal cells.

Myomectomy-Hysteroscopic: A myomectomy is performed to remove the fibroids in a woman’s uterus, without harming the healthy tissue. This surgery is a great alternative for any woman needing fibroids removed, but who still wishes to have children in the future.

Pelvic Organ Prolapse Surgery: When a woman has constant pain and discomfort in her pelvic organ, she may need surgical treatment. Pelvic organ prolapse surgeries aim to repair prolapsed areas so patients can live their lives free of pain.

Minimally Invasive OBGYN Surgery

Minimally invasive surgery (also referred to as laparoscopic surgery) allows for surgeons to perform complex surgeries and intricate surgeries, while only making a small incision or avoiding one altogether.
