Gynecologic Surgery

When surgery is the best option for your reproductive health needs, trust Cone Health for compassionate care from experienced gynecologists.

Gynecologic Surgical Services We Offer

Choose Cone Health for a wide range of specialized women’s surgical services, including:

Contraceptive Services

Help prevent pregnancy with permanent or long-acting reversible birth control, such as:

  • Intrauterine contraceptive device (IUD)
  • Subdermal contraceptive implant (Nexplanon®)
  • Essure® tubal occlusion – Places an insert that permanently blocks your fallopian tubes without surgery
  • Surgical sterilization, including tubal ligation

Relief for Heavy Periods

Ask about endometrial ablation procedures that can reduce or stop heavy menstrual bleeding, such as:

  • Genesys HTA™ System – Destroys uterine tissue with a heated saline solution
  • NovaSure® endometrial ablation – Uses radiofrequency energy to remove uterine lining

Minimally Invasive Hysterectomy

Your doctor may recommend a hysterectomy to treat cancer or to relieve pain, heavy bleeding or other uterine conditions. Whenever possible, your Cone Health doctor uses minimally invasive techniques, such as robotic-assisted surgery, that result in smaller scars and a quicker recovery time. Talk with your gynecologist about which type of procedure is best for you.

You can feel confident in the quality of our hysterectomy care because our rates of surgical site infections after hysterectomy are significantly lower than the national benchmark.

Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery

Pelvic reconstructive surgery may be part of your care plan if you experience pelvic floor conditions such as:

  • Urinary incontinence, including stress incontinence and urge incontinence
  • Pelvic organ prolapse

Specialized Care in a Hospital Setting

Rest assured, your gynecologic care team at Cone Health has the experience and ability to handle complex conditions and any unexpected complications. Whether you have your procedure in one of our hospitals or short-stay surgery centers, your doctor has quick and easy access to all the support and resources of a full-service hospital.

Plus, you’ll benefit from post-surgical care from nurses who specialize in caring for women and their reproductive health.

What To Expect Before & After Surgery

Depending on your condition and procedure, you’ll either have a pre-op phone call with a nurse or a pre-op appointment with your doctor. At this time, you’ll learn how to prepare for surgery and receive instructions on what you can do to help prevent surgical site infections and prepare for a smooth recovery.

Before you leave the hospital after surgery, you’ll receive instructions about how to care for yourself and your surgical site. Within three days of returning home, you’ll receive a follow-up call from one of our nurses.
