    What is Gynecological Cancer Surgery?

    • Gynecological cancer is a tumor affecting one or more of the Cervix, Uterus, Ovaries and other pelvic organs.
    • The treatment procedures for the cancer depend on the malignancy, size, location and rate of proliferation of the tumorous growth


    • The tumor is first diagnosed using different imaging techniques, like MRI, Ultrasound, etc.
    • After this, a biopsy is conducted to detect the nature of the cancerous cells.
    • Depending on this diagnosis, further treatment procedures are determined

    Types of Surgery

    Following are the types of surgeries performed

    • Staging surgery - removal of tissue samples from different Pelvic organs to determine the proliferation of the cancer
    • Debulking - Removal of maximum portion of the tumor so that less tumor is left to be treated by chemotherapy
    • Total Hysterectomy - Removal of the uterus and the cervix
    • Radical Hysterectomy - Removal of uterus, cervix and a part of the vagina. In some cases, the ovaries, Fallopian tube and/or nearby lymph nodes may also be surgically removed
    • Salpingo-oophorectomy - Removal of one or both ovaries and Fallopian tubes
    • Lymph node removal - Removal of all lymph nodes in the neighboring region of the pelvic organs

    Follow up

    • The surgical procedure aims at removing as much of the tumor as possible.
    • After this, appropriate methods such as chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy are used to remove the rest of the tumor
    • In case of hysterectomy or other procedures involving total removal of the organ, further procedures are not required

    Alternative methods

    In some cases, the following methods of surgery may be used-

    • Laparoscopic surgery
