Gynecologic Surgery

The providers in Women's Health offer a variety of gynecologic surgical options based on your individual needs. Most of these surgeries are performed at Bassett Medical Center in Cooperstown. Some minor surgeries can be performed in an ambulatory setting closer to your home. Our surgeons and their teams have extensive experience in a wide variety of gynecologic surgeries and offer compassionate and quality care to ensure the best experience possible.

Surgical procedures performed at Bassett:

  • Removal of ovaries and fallopian tubes
  • Removal of uterine/ovarian masses
  • Laparoscopy for evaluation of pain/fertility
  • Hysteroscopy for evaluation of bleeding
  • Hysteroscopic removal of fibroid tumors (Myosure)
  • Sterilization procedures such as laparoscopic tubal ligation and hysteroscopic tubal occlusion (Essure)
  • Endometrial ablation (Novasure and Thermachoice)
  • Cervical cone biopsy for treating cervical pre-cancer
  • Dilation and currettage (D&C)
  • Hysterectomy

A hysterectomy (surgical removal of the uterus) is still one of the most common surgeries performed in the United States. It can be performed either through the vagina, using small incisions through the abdomen (laparoscopically), or through a single larger adominal incision (laparotomy), depending on the size of your uterus and the reason for your hysterectomy. Sometimes the cervix is left in place (supracervical hysterectomy). Sometimes it is recommended that the ovaries and fallopian tubes are removed as well. If a hysterectomy is medically necessary, our providers will be here to discuss options and help you choose the best one.
