Dallas IVF’s physicians are contemporary trained in the latest techniques that are proven surgical procedures to correct anatomical abnormalities that can lead to infertility or pregnancy losses.
Most infertility surgeries are outpatient procedures that do not require overnight stays in the hospital. Dr. Barnett, Dr. Ku, Dr. Havemann, and Dr. Mucowski are highly skilled surgeons with many years of experience and training. Below are listed the most common types of surgical procedures performed by our Dallas IVF physicians.
Laparoscopy and Hysteroscopy
Müllerian reconstructive surgery
A Müllerian anomaly occurs when the uterus, tubes, or the upper portion of the vagina do not form correctly while developing in the womb. Laparoscopic, hysteroscopic, or even open abdominal procedures may be necessary to correct these anomalies and restore fertility.
Open Abdominal Procedures
Although most infertility surgeries are performed using the minimally invasive techniques, sometimes laparoscopy or hysteroscopy will not be sufficient to correct an abnormality of the pelvis. As such, the physician will recommend a larger abdominal incision. The most common type of abdominal procedure performed by our medical staff is an abdominal myomectomy for the removal of large uterine fibroids. Most open abdominal procedures require 1 – 2 nights of hospitalization. Most patients return to work within 4 weeks.
