Gynecologic Surgery

Our San Antonio OBGYN team performs gynecologic surgeries

After seeing one of our San Antonio OBGYN team members, it is possible a woman might need a surgical procedure to maintain their health. These procedures are performed by a gynecologist to treat conditions affecting women’s reproductive organs.

Women may need gynecologic surgery at Live Oak Women’s Health for various conditions including endometriosis, fibroids (benign tumors), ovarian cysts or abnormal bleeding. Advances in gynecologic surgery provide our skilled physicians options to treat these and other common conditions so women can readily access the treatment they need and improve their quality of life.

Our team can perform many types of gynecologic surgery

Our OBGYN team performs a variety of surgical procedures ranging from minimally invasive to more involved open surgeries. The OBGYNs at Live Oak Women’s Health compassionately care for their patients and strive to provide the least invasive option when possible. There are times when complicated conditions require open surgery, and your San Antonio OBGYN will carefully and thoroughly explain the procedure, its risks and benefits.

Here are some examples of the types of surgery and procedures we perform:

  • Laparoscopic surgery: A minimally invasive surgical technique using a laparoscope – a thin lighted telescope – to view the inside of the abdomen and pelvic region. It is commonly used to diagnose and treat conditions like endometriosis, ovarian cysts and ectopic pregnancy.
  • Hysteroscopic surgery: A minimally invasive procedure using a hysteroscope—a thin tube with a camera – to view the inside of the uterus. It is used to diagnose and treat conditions like uterine fibroids, polyps and adhesions.
  • Robotic surgery: Computer-controlled robots can allow our San Antonio OGBYN surgical team to perform many minimally invasive procedures with precision and accuracy with less impact to surrounding tissue.
  • Hysterectomy: A common procedure that varies in complexity that removes the uterus. It is used to treat uterine fibroids, endometriosis and abnormal uterine bleeding. This procedure is one of the most common procedures performed on women in the United States totaling almost 600,000 per year.
  • Myomectomy: A procedure that varies in complexity that involves the removal of uterine fibroids. It is done to preserve the uterus and fertility in women.

Embracing a collaborative approach in gynecologic surgery

Our San Antonio OBGYN team involves every patient and their all-important loved ones in the education and decision-making process when considering gynecologic surgery. We fully inform patients of the risks that accompany these types of surgeries and ask them to carefully consider those risks and weigh them against the benefits and quality-of-life improvement that can accompany a successful procedure.

It is important to consult with a skilled and experienced gynecologist to discuss the best treatment options for your condition. Our San Antonio OBGYN team is ready to help you. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment.
