Overview of reproductive surgery

The failure to reproduce offspring is a serious blow to the mental peace of men and women. They rush to doctors to know the reason for their inability to give birth to children. Both males and females can have problems in their reproductive organs, which can be treated by simple surgery. Reproductive surgery can provide them with the immense joy of being proud parents of healthy kids.

Information about the reproductive surgery

The latest medical techniques and tools are used for reproductive surgery now. It is an easy procedure that can be done within only a couple of hours by an experienced gynaecologist. All types of congenital defects in the reproductive organs can be cured by reproductive surgery. This type of surgery is much safer than other complicated surgeries. Hence, patients recover very quickly after undergoing this surgery and they are ready for having a baby.

Who qualifies for reproductive surgery?

Many women cannot conceive due to blockage in their cervix or fallopian tubes. They may also suffer from problems, like uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, and endometriosis. All these disorders in the female reproductive organs can be cured by successful reproductive surgery.  The congenital abnormality in the uterus and pelvic adhesion can also be treated by this surgery. Reproductive defects in males, like low sperm count, can be treated through reproductive surgery. Testicular biopsy, percutaneous sperm aspiration (PESA), and vasectomy reversal are some male reproductive treatment procedures. Thus, both men and women craving to have a child but failing to reproduce for a long time can avail the benefits of reproductive surgery.

Why is reproductive surgery conducted?

Reproductive surgery is essential to restore the natural fertility of a man or woman. Various reproductive problems in males and females can be accurately diagnosed and treated with different kinds of reproductive surgeries. Modern techniques help in conducting painless surgeries, from which patients recover within only a few days. Different types of reproductive surgeries are now available, which are applied according to the condition of patients. Laparoscopy, hysteroscopy, laparotomy, tubular surgery, and robotic surgery are the main varieties of reproductive surgery. Laparoscopy and hysteroscopy are also used as diagnostic procedures to detect the exact cause of infertility in a patient.

Specific benefits of undergoing a reproductive surgery

  • Patients experience lesser post-surgical pain in laparoscopy and hysteroscopy
  • Reproductive surgery is comparatively cheaper than an open surgery
  • A very short span is needed for post-surgical recovery
  • Most reproductive surgeries are successful in curing patients
  • Very less blood loss occurs even while removing cysts, polyps or fibroids

Risks involved in a reproductive surgery

  • Damages to the lining and tissues of reproductive organs, caused by the tools used for a reproductive surgery
  •  If the patient eats or drinks just before the surgery, then food or liquid particles may be forced into the lungs from the stomach, causing much damage to tiny air sacs.
  • The smoking habit of the patient can cause complications, due to the harmful effects of nicotine and carbon monoxide present in the blood during the surgery.


Fibroids or tumours in the reproductive organs can turn malignant and result in fatal cancerous forms. Thus, reproductive surgeries can also save patients if treated at an early stage. People need to contact the best doctors in this field, to be cured of infertility or other problems related to their reproductive organs.
