Among the most common treatments and procedures for gynecologic diseases and conditions:

Cryosurgery

Cryosurgery is the use of extreme cold in order to destroy diseased tissue. This procedure can be performed at a doctor's office or an operating room, depending on the reason a person is having the procedure.

D & C

D & C, or dilation and curettage, is a surgical procedure usually performed following a miscarriage. Dilation means to open up the cervix, and curettage means the removal of the contents of the uterus.

Hysterectomy

A hysterectomy is a surgical procedure completed to remove the uterus. It may also involve removal of the cervix, ovaries and the fallopian tubes.

LEEP procedure

This procedure uses a heated, wire loop in order to remove cells and tissue. The LEEP procedure can be used as part of treatment or to help make a diagnosis of cancerous or abnormal cells and tissue.

Myomectomy

A myomectomy is a surgical procedure performed in order to remove uterine fibroids. Uterine fibroids are usually benign tumors that grow in the uterus that can be very uncomfortable.
