Gynecological Surgeries Q & A

Are there gynecological surgery options to treat incontinence?

Urinary incontinence can be divided into two main types: Overactive bladder (urge incontinence) and stress incontinence, which occurs when you laugh, sneeze, cough, or perform certain physical activities. Many women experience incontinence as a result of pregnancy, vaginal childbirth, trauma, or excessive weight gain. About 25 percent of all women experience incontinence at some point in their lifetimes.

If treatment with exercise and medication is ineffective, there are minimally invasive gynecological surgeries and procedures that can be performed to relieve your symptoms. Urethral injections and bladder sling surgery are two of the more common procedures used in treatment of incontinence.

What is gynecological laparoscopy surgery used for?

Diagnostic laparoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure in which a tiny incision is made near the belly button to allow for the insertion of a tiny scope (called a laparoscope) in order to view the internal organs. During the procedure, a small amount of gas is placed in the abdomen to create more space for the doctor to see the organs more clearly. If anything is identified during the initial procedure, the surgeon can insert other small implements through the incision to treat the condition. Gynecological laparoscopy surgeries are often used to treat:

  • Ovarian cysts
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Removal of scar tissue and adhesions
  • Tipped or retroverted uterus
  • Incontinence (bladder sling)
  • Uterine bleeding

How long is the recovery period for gynecological surgeries?

Each surgical procedure is different and recovery time will depend on a number of factors, such as the type of procedure performed, the health of the person undergoing surgery, the surgical approach, and the type of anesthesia used. With most laparoscopic procedures, you will be able to go home the same day, although occasionally, an overnight stay in the hospital is required. You may have some pain and discomfort for a few days after the procedure, but your doctor will prescribe medications to help manage it. In most cases, you can return to normal activity within a week or two after surgery.
