Which types of surgery does an OB/GYN perform?

An OB/GYN performs all types of diagnostic and treatment surgeries related to your reproductive system and genitals. You might need a gynecologic surgery to:

  • Remove ovarian cysts
  • Get rid of uterine fibroids
  • Gather tissue samples
  • Treat a vaginal prolapse
  • Remove tumors or masses
  • Diagnose pelvic pain
  • Treat abnormally heavy periods

Your OB/GYN is also your go-to person for permanent birth control surgery, known as tubal ligation. They can even perform a hysterectomy if you’re menopausal or have certain health conditions.

How do I prepare for a laparoscopy?

Usually, women need to fast and take nothing by mouth the night before surgery. If you’re having an extensive type of procedure, such as a tumor removal or hysterectomy, you might also need a bowel prep to clear your intestinal tract the day before.

Plan on getting your prescriptions filled before your procedure so that you have them at home. It’s also helpful to get ahead on work and housework and stock up on groceries. The more you do to organize your work and personal life, the easier it’s going to be for you to relax and recuperate after surgery.
