Gynecological Surgeries and Procedures
In some cases, surgery may be required. The gynecologists at our San Antonio clinics approach the surgery with you as your partner, explaining the surgery in detail and discussing the possible alternatives and potential risks associated with the procedure. We believe the better you understand your diagnosis and treatment recommendations, the more equipped you will be to make educated decisions and recover more quickly.
If you have a question regarding a particular procedure, please contact our office at (210) 34-WOMAN or (210) 349-6626.
