Yuma Regional Medical Center works closely with local OB/GYN doctors to make it as convenient as possible for women to undergo the surgical procedures they need while receiving the compassionate care they deserve. Women's Surgical Services at YRMC includes three operating rooms dedicated to performing OB/GYN surgery, a pre-op area and its own Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU), often called a recovery room. Any pre-admission testing patients need in order to prepare for surgery is also completed in this area of the hospital.
Some of the common surgical procedures performed by Women's Surgical Services include:
- Tubal ligation
- Bladder lift
- Dilation and curettage (D&C)
- Treatment of ovarian cysts
- Thermal ablation
Women who require hospital care after their surgery are admitted to the Women's Post-op Care Unit on the floor directly above Women's Surgical Services center.
