7 Questions to Ask Your Provider Before GYN Surgery


Like most patients, you want to make sure you choose the best possible provider for your GYN surgery. Unfortunately, many patients do not realize that not just any doctor can perform successful GYN surgery. That is why it is paramount to ask your potential provider a few questions before making a final decision.

Ask Your Provider These Questions Before Considering GYN Surgery

At The Center for Innovative GYN Care (CIGC), our providers are full-time GYN surgeons specializing in minimally invasive techniques that have been thoroughly tested, researched and published in prestigious medical journals due to exceptional patient outcomes. That is why we encourage our patients to ask their provider the necessary questions before moving forward with treatment to ensure their GYN care is in good hands.

1. How Many GYN Surgeries Have You Performed?

GYN surgery is a delicate process, so you want to ensure your surgeon has plenty of experience. Therefore, you want to make sure you ask your potential provider how many GYN surgeries they have performed.

Having a provider you can trust is important, and at CIGC, our surgeons have the experience and expertise to provide you with the best possible care. We have performed over 25,000 surgical procedures, bringing relief to women suffering from GYN symptoms such as heavy bleeding, pelvic pain, infertility and more.

2. What Type of Training or Experience Do You Have With GYN Surgery?

When it comes to any type of surgery, you not only want a surgeon with experience, but you also want one who has had the proper high-level training needed to perform the surgery. Just because a doctor has performed a particular type of surgery before does not mean they are the best surgeon for the job.

At CIGC, all of our surgeons have had extensive experience and training in GYN surgery. This allows us to provide our patients with optimal outcomes and the best possible experience.

3. What are Your Success Rates With GYN Surgery?

Before undergoing any surgery, you should always ask your potential provider about their success rates. This will give you a good idea of what to expect and whether or not the provider is qualified to perform the surgery.

Furthermore, it is crucial to always get a second and even third opinion before surgery. This will help you compare success rates and make the best-informed decision possible. CIGC is proud to offer our second opinion GYN program to help women make informed decisions about their health.

4. What are the Risks and Side Effects Associated With GYN Surgery?

No surgery is without risks and side effects, so it is important to be aware of them before making a final decision. Be sure to ask your potential provider about any risks or side effects associated with the surgery you are considering.

CIGC strives to minimize the risks and side effects associated with GYN surgery by using minimally invasive techniques performed in ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs). This allows for less downtime, minimal pain, and fewer risks and side effects compared to traditional open or robotic GYN surgery.

5. How Do I Prepare for GYN Surgery?

Prior to your procedure, you will need to do some preparation to ensure everything goes smoothly. Be sure to ask your provider how you can best prepare for your GYN surgery.

CIGC will provide you with all the information and resources you need to prepare for your surgery. We will also be there to answer any questions or concerns you may have along the way. Preparing for your surgery is a crucial part of the process, and we are here to help.

6. What Should I Expect During GYN Surgery?

Having a deep understanding of what to expect during your surgery is important. This may help you be prepared and know what to expect during and after the procedure. The last thing you want is to be caught off guard. Therefore, your GYN surgeon should thoroughly explain the procedure and what to expect.

CIGC is committed to providing our patients with a clear understanding of their surgery and what they can expect. We believe being informed is an essential part of the decision-making process.

7. What Is the Recovery Process for GYN Surgery?

Once your surgery is complete, you will begin the recovery process. This is an integral part of the surgery, and you should be sure to ask your provider about what your recovery will entail. 

Our GYN techniques enable the shortest recovery time possible, helping our patients get back to life faster.
