What are the most common gynecological surgeries?

The most common gynecological surgeries are:

  • Hysterectomy (removal of the uterus)
  • Oophorectomy (removal of the ovaries)
  • Tubal ligation (a permanent form of birth control, commonly known as "getting your tubes tied")
  • Endometrial ablation (removal of the lining of the uterus)
  • Cesarean section (surgical delivery of a baby)
  • Laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy (removal of ovarian cysts)
  • Laparoscopic salpingectomy (removal of fallopian tubes)
  • Vaginal vault prolapse repair (surgery to repair a vaginal prolapse)
  • Colporrhaphy (surgery to repair a vaginal or uterine prolapse)
  • Laparoscopic surgery (minimally invasive surgery performed through small incisions in the abdomen)

It's worth noting that not all of the above surgeries are exclusive to gynecology and that the most common type of surgery may vary depending on the population and location.
