GYN Surgery – Minimally Invasive Surgery – The most common gynecological surgery is laparoscopy. Rather than a large open incision, our OBGYN specialists strategically make a few small incisions using a tiny camera and long, thin surgical instruments. The camera takes images inside your body, and those images are sent to a video monitor in the operating room which guides surgeons as they operate.

- Tubal Ligation – Tubal ligation, often referred to as “having your tubes tied,” is a surgical procedure in which a woman’s fallopian tubes are blocked, tied, or cut. Either procedure stops eggs from traveling from the ovaries into the fallopian tubes, where the egg is normally fertilized by a sperm. How long does it take to recover? Usually, after a laparoscopy, it’s about a week’s recovery time. After a mini-laparotomy, it usually takes 1 to 3 weeks. If you had a mini-laparotomy after having a baby, your recovery may take longer. You will be protected from pregnancy right away. (Pregnancy prevention will occur right away.)

Hormonal Therapy – HRT is a treatment used to augment the body’s natural hormone levels, either in the form of estrogen-alone therapy (ET), for women who have had a hysterectomy (or surgical menopause) or as estrogen with progesterone therapy (EPT), for women who experience menopause naturally at midlife. To learn more about natural hormone replacement therapy options, schedule a consultation with our OBGYN specialists in Henderson.
