Hysterectomy Surgery – Myomectomy Surgery – Oophorectomy Surgery – Uterine Arteries Embolization
Hysterectomy surgery is when the uterus (also called the womb) is removed from a uterine prolapse, which occurs when the uterus drops through the cervix and protrudes from the vagina. Your uterus can be removed in small pieces through the incisions, through a larger incision made in your abdomen, or through your vagina (which is called a laparoscopic vaginal hysterectomy). The best Virginia gynecologic surgeons may also remove the ovaries and the fallopian tubes during the procedure. Sometimes this is not decided until the time of the surgery. This is called a bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, or BSO. (Together with a total abdominal hysterectomy this is referred to as a TAH/BSO).
Myomectomy surgery is performed to remove of uterine leiomyomas.
Oophorectomy surgery is a surgical procedure to remove one or both of your ovaries which are almond-shaped and the part of a woman’s reproductive system that stores and releases eggs for fertilization and produces female sex hormones.They will also diagnose and treat amenorrhea (which is the absence of menstruation).

(It is also called uterine artery embolization.) It takes usually less than an hour.
