Today more and more Ob-Gyn practices are finding themselves in a crisis situation. The number of surgeries performed by these independent Ob-Gyn practices has seen a rapid downfall over the past decade. According to researches carried out by Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, certain types of surgeries—including gastrectomy and knee arthroplasty—have increased in hospitals across the nation while, some OB/GYN surgeries are on the decline. While the survey studied the number of various surgeries women undergo, it became clear that of the surgical procedures on the upsurge none were Ob-Gyn procedures however, of the 10 procedures that are witnessing a significant decline at least 4 are Ob-Gyn related. Oophorectomy (unilateral and bilateral) saw a 54% decline between 2003 and 2012. Hysterectomy, which included procedures done through open surgery and those done vaginally, decreased by 51% during the same time of evaluation. Genitourinary Incontinence procedures fell at 62.5% and vaginal obliteration by 59% shows research.
