Caring Gynecological Surgery at Dignity Health Central Coast
A number of conditions can lead you and your doctor to consider gynecological surgery. If you experience any of the following symptoms or conditions, this treatment option may effectively relieve your pain and improve your well-being:
- Heavy menstrual bleeding
- Cancer of your vulva, vagina, ovaries, cervix, or uterus
- Pelvic prolapse, when your reproductive organ, bladder, or rectum move out of place
- Endometriosis, where tissue that lines your uterus grows outside the uterus
- Infertility to help with endometriosis or fallopian tube blocks
- Ovarian cysts
- Uterine fibroids
- Stress incontinence, or bladder leakage that occurs when coughing, laughing, or during physical activity
What to Expect During Your Gynecologic Surgery
You and your Dignity Health Central Coast gynecologist will determine whether you can have open or minimally invasive gynecologic surgery. Open surgery requires your doctor to make a large incision, and you can expect to stay overnight at one of our hospitals.
Minimally invasive surgery makes smaller incisions in your abdomen or vagina. This type of surgery is usually done as an outpatient and has much less pain and a faster recovery.
Your doctor will discuss the risks of each procedure, being mindful of your well-being and personal needs. Schedule an appointment with a Dignity Health Central Coast doctor today to help you regain quality of life with gynecologic surgery. Dignity Health’s women’s health services help you live life fully without pain with gynecologic surgery throughout California’s Central Coast.
