Reproductive Surgery

Reproductive Surgery involves surgery in the field of reproductive medicine. Reproductive surgeons consist of gynecologists and urologists who specialize in reproductive surgery and are the experts in the conservative treatment of reproductive organs in both men and women. Reproductive surgery includes a wide range of operations designed for different purposes. Most operations are done to restore normal uterus, tubes and ovaries.

Although the use of assisted reproductive technology (ART) has become more prevalent, surgeries conducted on the fallopian tubes and ovaries have become less common. Nevertheless, there are still many occasions where reproductive surgery can make a difference. At the UCLA Fertility and Reproductive Health Center, our reproductive surgeons specialize in surgeries that aim to investigate female reproductive organs and treat reproductive problems that lead to infertility such as endometriosis, uterine fibroids, pelvic adhesions, tubal occlusions, ovarian cysts, and congenital or acquired abnormalities. Male reproductive surgeries are performed by our UCLA urologists who specialize in male infertility.
