Women's Procedures

Colposcopy - is done when a Pap test result shows abnormal cells of the cervix. A colposcope is a specialized magnifying device which allows better evaluation that cannot be seen by the eye alone.

Dilatation and Curettage - is a procedure done in a hospital setting to dilate the cervix and curette/scrape tissue samples from the lining of the uterus. This is done to evaluate abnormal or heavy bleeding, evaluate polyps, and screen for cancer.

Endometrial Ablation - is a procedure to eliminate or greatly reduce menstrual bleeding. Ablation destroys the thin lining of the uterus.

Hysteroscopy - is an office procedure in which a thin device allows us to view directly inside the uterus.

Hysterectomy - is a surgical procedure to remove the uterus. The ovaries and fallopian tubes may or may not be removed during this procedure. The pros and cons of these options are discussed with you to allow you to make the appropriate choice.

Laparoscopy - is a minimally invasive procedure in which very small incisions are used to accommodate a camera and specially-designed instruments to evaluate and treat various gynecologic conditions. This allows for less pain and scarring and faster recovery.

LEEP - A Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure removes abnormal cervical cells. A thin wire loop with low-voltage electrical energy cuts away unwanted cells.

Ultrasound - enables us to create images of your pelvic organs with the use of sound waves. Our office and two sonographers are accredited by the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine.
