Experimental: Tissue Donation
This study will involve females over 18 who are scheduled to undergo elective surgery. These patients will be screened for participation in this study, which will only involve the collection of discarded tissue.
Other: Tissue Donation
Females over 18 who are scheduled to undergo elective surgery will have discarded tissue collected.
- cell expansion [ Time Frame: weekly ]The goal of this pilot study is to obtain small amounts of human skeletal muscle that would normally be discarded during gynecologic surgery and instead conserve this tissue for laboratory analysis.
