Surgery & Procedures

At Southdale ObGyn we offer comprehensive gynecologic care including in-office, outpatient, and hospital-based surgical procedures.

To schedule an appointment, please call our office.

  • Minimally Invasive Surgeries

    Benefits to this type of surgery are smaller (or no) incisions, shorter recovery and less pain.

    • Endometrial Ablation – The lining of the uterus (endometrium) is cauterized using a device placed through your vagina and cervix.
    • Hysteroscopy – The lining of the uterus is viewed through a small camera placed through the cervix and uterus.
    • Laparoscopy – uses a small camera to operate inside your abdomen. (Find out more about laparoscopy)
    • DaVinci Robotic Surgery – A special type of laparoscopic surgery that allows the surgeon to perform more difficult surgeries (for bleeding, fibroids, endometriosis or prolapse) using the help of a surgeon-controlled robotic assistant.
  • In Office Procedures

    A Colposcopy is a procedure that allows for evaluation and management of abnormal pap smears.  Learn more details about colposcopies.

    A LEEP (Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure) is a procedure performed with local anesthetic for management of abnormal pap smears. Learn more details about LEEP procedures.

    Sonohysterogram – a specialized ultrasound that involves evaluations of the uterine cavity.

    Endometrial Biopsies – a thin tube is used to collect a small amount of tissue from the lining of the uterus (endometrium).

    Hysterosalpingogram (HSG) – an X-ray tubal dye study performed with a radiologist and gynecologist.

  • Hospital Admission

    M Health Fariview Procedure or Hospital Admission:

    Before you come in you must get tested for COVID-19, even if you’ve been vaccinated.

     

    If you’re going home on the same day as your procedure (surgery):

    1 to 2 days before your procedure, take an at-home, rapid antigen test. You can buy these at many pharmacy stores. Or you can order free, at-home tests at covid.gov/tests. If you can’t find an at-home, rapid antigen test, please schedule a PCR test with M Health Fairview by calling 1-855-324-7843, or visiting mhealthfairview.org/resources/covid19. *We can’t accept tests that are more than 4 days old.*

    If your test is NEGATIVE, please take a photo of the test. Show the photo to the nurse when you come in for your procedure.

    If your test is POSITIVE, please tell your surgeon’s office right away. A positive test means that you have COVID-19. We’ll probably have to postpone your admission, surgery or procedure. Your care team will discuss this with you. After that, we’ll let you know what to do and when you can re-schedule.

     

    If you’re staying overnight in the hospital:

    4 days before your procedure, please get a PCR test from a lab. To schedule a PCR test with M Health Fairview, call 1-855-FAIRVIEW. Or, visit mhealthfairview.org/resources/covid19.

    If your test is NEGATIVE, please ask the testing location to fax your results to us at 612-884-3674.

    If your test is POSITIVE, please tell your surgeon’s office right away. A positive test means that you have COVID-19. We’ll probably have to postpone your admission, surgery or procedure. Your care team will discuss this with you. After that, we’ll let you know what to do and when you can re-schedule.

     

    After your test and before your procedure, please follow these safety guidelines:

    • Limit trips outside your home.

    • Limit the number of people you see.

    • Always wear a face covering outside your home.

    • Use social distancing. Stay 6 feet away from others whenever you can.

    • Wash your hands often.

     

     

  • Hysterectomy

    Removal of the entire uterus to treat multiple different menstrual problems. This can be performed vaginally, laparoscopically, abdominally or with a robotic assistance.

  • Sterilization

    Laparoscopic tubal ligation
    Using 2 or 3 tiny incisions in your belly, either a part of your fallopian tube (or sometimes the whole fallopian tube) is removed.

    Essure tubal occlusion
    Tiny metal coils are inserted into your fallopian tubes using a device placed through your vagina and cervix. There is no incision. A follow up test (tubal dye study) is needed after 3 months to make sure your tubes are blocked.

  • Urinary Incontinence

    Transobturator Sling – A minimally invasive outpatient surgery using mesh tape under the urethra, like a hammock, to keep it in the normal position. This helps prevent involuntary release of urine.
