This procedure is most commonly completed on an outpatient basis and is used to remove the endometrial lining of a woman’s uterus. It is appropriate for women who suffer from prolonged to excessive bleeding during their menstrual cycle, but cannot or do not wish to undergo a hysterectomy. Endometrial Ablation is not recommended for patients who may still want to get pregnant.
A hysteroscopy allows your physician to view and examine the wall of your uterus. The hysteroscope is a small, telescope-like instrument that is inserted into the uterus through the vagina and cervix. It is used to diagnose or treat uterine problems.
This procedure is considered minor surgery and may be performed in our office. For most women, it is very low risk and is performed with local, regional, or general anesthesia. It can be used instead of open abdominal surgery to diagnose and treat uterine adhesions, fibroids, or septums.
Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure (LEEP)
LEEP is used to remove tissue and cells in a woman’s lower genital tract, and plays a role in diagnosing and treating abnormal or cancerous conditions. The areas this is used to treat include the vagina and cervix. This procedure uses a wire looped heated by an electric current. This loop is then used to cut away a thin layer of abnormal tissue, which will be sent to the lab for testing. LEEP may also be used to remove abnormal cells to allow healthy tissue to grow.
For more information about this procedure, please contact GirlTalk & Gynecology. We are happy to answer any questions you have and will address your concerns.
This type of tubal ligation procedure is an in-office procedure that seals off the fallopian tubes. Blocking off these tubes prevents sperm from reaching the egg to fertilize it. The procedure uses two small metal springs, which are inserted into the fallopian tubes. This causes scar tissue to form within the tubes, permanently blocking them off. It is a form of permanent birth control and irreversible.
Dilation and Curettage (D&C)
D&C is used to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the uterus. During this procedure, the cervix is dilated and a thin instrument is inserted into the uterus to remove uterine tissue. This procedure may be done in conjunction with a hysteroscopy or other procedures.
Our practice offers the convenience of in-office laboratory services. We provide limited on-site lab testing providing immediate results for pregnancy, urinalysis, and thyroid among others. Laboratory tests that are not available on site are sent to a larger reference lab (LabCorp or Quest Diagnostics) and results are typically available to providers with 24 to 48 hours.
