One of the most common types of surgical care your OBGYN near Northside Hospital does is deliveries. Whether it be a vaginal delivery or a caesarean, you will deliver at Northside Hospital. Though a vaginal delivery typically does not require a long recovery, recovering from a C-section will require some time in the hospital. Your OBGYN will discuss your delivery options with you well in advance of your due date.
Your OBGYN near Northside Hospital can also perform hysterectomies, or removing the uterus. There are many reasons women may undergo this procedure. Common reasons include: to treat endometriosis, to battle uterine cancer or fibroids, if a woman has heavy, painful periods. These are just a few reasons your OBGYN may perform this procedure.
Each women’s period is different. Some women have periods that include excessive, heavy bleeding, that can often last longer than usual. This can make it difficult for women to partake in activities during this time and even leave them feeling tired and even cause anemia. If this is something you struggle with, your OBGYN near Northside Hospital may recommend an endometrial ablation, in which they destroy the lining of your uterus. This typically reduces flow and may even stop period completely.
Ovarian cyst removal
Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs that develop in an ovary or on its surface. While most of the time these dissolve on their own, they can sometimes cause problems for women. They can become painful, and may become cancerous. Should they get large enough, they can even rupture. If there is a concern they may be cancerous, or if they are causing problems, your OBGYN near Northside Hospital may remove them surgically.
