Operations Performed by an OB/GYN; Female Surgery

In addition to seeing patients and delivering babies, OB/GYNs (obstetrician/gynecologist) also perform “female surgery.” Some surgeries are done in the office (cryosurgery), some are done as part of delivering a baby (cesarean or episiotomy), and the others are diagnostic (breast biopsy) or for repairs (stress incontinence).
