Why might I need gynecological surgical services?
You may require gynecological surgical services for numerous reasons. You might select elective surgeries because you desire permanent birth control or reductions in heavy menstrual bleeding. Your provider might recommend gynecological surgery if you have:
- Cervical cancer
- Ovarian cancer
- Abnormal tissue
- Heavy bleeding
- Uterine fibroids
- Uterine cysts
- Ectopic pregnancy
- Pelvic pain
- Vulvar disorders
Surgery is often recommended as a last resort or when it’s in your best interest to prevent serious gynecological complications.
What happens during surgery?
Prior to surgery with North Atlanta Ob/Gyn, follow all pre-surgical instructions. Your surgeon might recommend avoiding food and drinking the morning of surgery, or avoiding taking certain medications. Arrange for someone to drive you home after the procedure.
Just before surgery, you receive local, regional, or general anesthesia, so you don’t feel any discomfort. Your gynecological specialist might make a tiny incision in your lower abdomen, or complete your surgery through the vagina. The length of time surgery lasts depends on the specific procedure you undergo.
What should I expect after the procedure?
You can often head home the same day as your surgery, but you must have someone drive you. Get plenty of rest, eat a nutritious diet, and avoid strenuous activity until your surgeon gives you the okay. Take medications as prescribed and follow all post-surgical instructions.
