What is Vulvar Vestibulectomy?

Category: Surgeries


A vulvar vesibulectomy is the removal of the innervated fibers that cause vulvar pain. A vaginal extension may be performed, in which vaginal tissue is pulled forward and sewn in place of the removed skin. This procedure is most commonly performed in patients suffering from vuvlodynia.
