Is a place where other doctors are afraid to go. Do a pelvic exam? As if!
But it is our hallmark. Vaginal surgery is what differentiates us gynecologists from other surgeons. We up the degree of difficulty by operating through it. Vaginal surgery violates many surgical dictums - good visualization (nope), easy access (HA!), good lighting (as I knock the OR light with my head yet again). But we do it. Successfully.
Nowadays, we are retreating from it. Adding laparoscopy, or using the robot. And this is not in the patient's nor our society's best interest.
We need to reclaim the vagina for surgery.
