For the convenience of our patients, we perform many common procedures in the comfort of our office


Office Procedures

We pride ourselves in offering our patients a wide array of in-office procedures such as:


Ablation

What is an Ablation? Ablation is a procedure used to stop heavy bleeding. Many women begin to experience heavy and/or irregular bleeding in their 30s and 40s, as they begin to get closer to menopause. Heavy periods are more than just an annoyance – they take a physical, social, and emotional toll as well. Fortunately, 90 to 95 percent of women can be helped by having an in-office procedure. The procedure performed typically takes from five to 15 minutes.

What can I expect? Prior to ablation, we typically perform a hysteroscopy and a dilation and curettage (D&C). We use a variety of leading devices, such as Novasure and Gynecare Thermachoice to perform the procedure.


Permanent Birth Control

What is Permanent Birth Control? Permanent birth control is a procedure that works with your body to create a natural barrier to prevent pregnancy.

Hysteroscopy

What is a Hysteroscopy? Hysteroscopy is the inspection of the uterine cavity by endoscopy with access through the cervix. It allows for the diagnosis of intrauterine pathology and serves as a method for surgical intervention (operative hysteroscopy). There are no incisions. Risks are minimal and may include bleeding; infection; uterine perforation that may require laparoscopy, and anesthetic risks.

What can I expect? This surgery is usually performed to evaluate abnormal bleeding during a woman’s life span. Most often a D&C is performed in conjunction. This involves sampling the lining of the uterus, so that it can be evaluated under a microscope to rule out pre-cancerous or cancerous lesions. It is very uncommon to experience any significant pain after this procedure and you may return to your normal activities the day following surgery.
