Fertility Enhancing Surgery

Many conditions can contribute to infertility, including fibroids, endometriosis, pelvic adhesions (scar tissue in the pelvis) and uterine anomalies such as a uterine septum and adhesions (scar tissue inside the uterus, see Asherman's syndrome).

Serving communities throughout Greater Boston, the gynecologic surgeons at Newton-Wellesley Hospital’s Minimally Invasive Gynecological Surgery are experts in surgical treatment and management of these conditions, offering hysteroscopy and laparoscopic surgery options. Some of the advantages of minimally invasive surgery are decreased recovery time and better cosmetic results. Contact us to inquire about fertility enhancing surgery at Newton-Wellesley Hospital.

Fertility Surgery Procedures

The following surgical procedures can be performed to treat conditions that lead to infertility:

Hysteroscopic Treatment Options
Some of the hysteroscopic procedures, such as removal of scar tissue from the inside of the uterus or removal of a uterine septum, can be performed in the office. Others are performed in the operating room with anesthesia.

Laparoscopic Treatment Options
Many procedures that were traditionally only done through large open incisions can now be done laparoscopically. The types of surgeries include:

  • laparoscopic myomectomy for the removal of large fibroids or multiple fibroids
  • laparoscopic treatment of advanced stage endometriosis
  • laparoscopic procedures in patients with a history of multiple prior surgeries
  • laparoscopic tubal reanastomosis (tubal ligation reversal)
  • laparoscopic removal of large benign ovarian masses or cysts
