OB/GYN Surgery

Obstetrics and gynecology are two surgical specialties, often abbreviated OB/GYN, that deal with female reproductive organs. The field of obstetrics specifically focuses on pregnancy and child delivery, whereas gynecology takes a broader stance and is concerned with general female reproductive health. UnityPoint Clinic - OBGYN provides a full range of OB/GYN procedures including traditional and minimally invasive options for therapeutic or diagnostics reasons.


Hysterectomy is one of the most common OB/GYN surgical procedures. At UnityPoint Health - Des Moines, both traditional or minimally-invasive surgical options are offered. If your doctor recommends this procedure, you could be a candidate for da Vinci robotic-assisted surgery, which is one of the least invasive treatment options for this condition. Surgeons can work with unmatched precision and control with only a few small incisions. 

Compared to vaginal, laparoscopic or open abdominal hysterectomies, the da Vinci method offers numerous benefits including:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Fewer complications
  • Less scarring
  • A shorter hospital stay
  • Quicker return to normal daily activities

Other common procedures include:

  • D&C Dilation and Curettage
  • Anterior or Posterior Repair for Vaginal Prolapse
  • Hysteroscopy
  • Endometrial Ablation
