Gyn Surgery Q & A

What is gynecological surgery?

Gynecological surgery is any surgery related to women’s reproductive health. You may require minimally invasive gynecological surgery for the following health conditions:

  • Fibroids
  • Endometriosis, or displaced endometrial tissue
  • Adenomyosis, or inner uterine lining that breaks through the uterine wall
  • Abnormal uterine bleeding
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Cancerous cervical cells
  • The desire for permanent birth control

Dr. Archer has years of experience and uses the latest advancements in gynecological surgery to maximize results and comfort.

What are examples of gynecological surgeries?

Dr. Archer completes numerous gynecological surgeries, especially those that are minimally invasive, to enhance your health and prevent serious complications. She may recommend:

Hysterectomy

A hysterectomy is the removal of your uterus. Dr. Archer may recommend this option if you have cancer, heavy bleeding, or no longer would like to have children.

Oophorectomy

An oophorectomy is a gynecological surgery that removes your ovaries if you have cancer, are at risk of ovarian cancer, or no longer want to have children. Dr. Archer may remove your ovaries and uterus at the same time.

Loop electrode excision

Loop electrode excision, also known as LEEP, is a procedure that uses an electric current to remove cancerous or abnormal cells from your cervix.  

Endometrial ablation

Endometrial ablation is a minimally invasive gynecological procedure that cauterizes uterine lining to prevent heavy bleeding.

Anterior repair and posterior repair

Dr. Archer uses anterior and posterior repair to surgically tighten the front and back wall of the vagina, to correct pelvic organs that dropped out of a normal position (pelvic organ prolapse).

Myomectomy

A myomectomy removes fibroids in your uterus without harming surrounding healthy tissue.

Ovarian cystectomy

An ovarian cystectomy is a minimally invasive surgery used to remove ovarian cysts.

Tubal sterilization

Dr. Archer uses tubal sterilization, or “tying your tubes,” to prevent you from becoming pregnant.

Other gynecological surgeries

In addition to the gynecological surgeries mentioned above, Dr. Archer completes biopsies to detect serious health conditions, removes ectopic pregnancies, and much more.
