In-Office Procedures

Ablation
If you are experiencing heavy or frequent bleeding and you have made the choice to not consider any more children then this may be the treatment option for you. Uterine (Endometrial) Ablation is a minor procedure designed to destroy the majority of the lining tissue inside of the Uterus. Typically these procedures take less than ten minute to perform and give approximately a 90% probability of reducing you bleeding to light normal. Some lucky patients never have any more cycles! We offer both in-office as well as outpatient surgical choices. Call today if your periods are controlling your life.

Hysteroscopy
The Hysteroscope is a thin lense with camera attachment that allows us to see into the Uterine cavity. This is commonly used to evaluate Abnormal Bleeding or to place the Essure Tubal Sterilization device.

Essure
This exciting new device for permanent birth control has NO cuts or stitches. The two small coils are placed in the fallopian tubes via a thin scope inserted through the cervix. We commonly perform the procedure in the office with mild, oral pain medications. Continuing your current form of birth control for 3-6 months till an X-Ray test confirms the tubes are blocked is extremely important to prevent an unanticipated pregnancy.

Colpo/LEEP
The PAP smear is a screening tool used to detect potentially abnormal cells on the cervix. If there is evidence of abnormalities then we can utilize a microscope (Colposcope) to evaluate the cervix in more detail. If we determine that there are significant Pre-Cancerous cells on the Cervix then one option for treatment is a LEEP procedure. LEEP stand for Loop Electrical Excision Procedure. After numbing the Cervix with Novacaine we shave off the area of abnormal cells using a wire loop.
