Minimally Invasive Procedures

Hysteroscopy

A hysteroscopy is a minor surgical procedure used to evaluate and possibly treat the cause of abnormal bleeding or possible abnormalities in your uterus. Your doctor inserts a very thin sterile telescopic device attached to a camera through the cervix and into the uterus so she can see if there are any growths or abnormalities. It is performed along with a D&C.

Laparoscopy

Laparoscopic surgery uses a special instrument called the laparoscope. The laparoscope is a long, slender device that is inserted into the abdomen through a small incision. It has a camera attached to it that allows the physician to view the abdominal and pelvic organs on an electronic screen. If a problem needs to be fixed, other instruments can be used. These instruments usually are inserted through additional small incisions in the abdomen. They sometimes can be inserted through the same single incision made for the laparoscope.

Hysterectomy

Hysterectomies are performed to treat a variety of conditions including symptomatic fibroids, heavy menses, prolapse, various cancers of the reproductive organs, severe endometriosis and chronic pelvic pain. It is sometimes recommended for patients as a preventive measure if they have a strong family history of reproductive organ cancers. Hysterectomies are performed through one of several techniques. We strive to perform our hysterectomies through a minimally invasive technique whenever possible. Minimally invasive hysterectomy techniques include vaginal hysterectomy, laparoscopic hysterectomy, and robotic-assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy.

Myomectomy

Myomectomy is the surgical removal of fibroid tumors. It ranges from hysteroscopic removal to laparoscopic procedures where the fibroid is destroyed, to a more traditional surgical approach where an incision is made and the fibroid is removed.

  • Uterine Fibroids
    Noncancerous growths in the uterus that can develop during a woman's childbearing years. Uterine fibroids are noncancerous growths of the uterus that often appear during childbearing years. Fibroids range in size from seedlings, undetectable by the human eye, to bulky masses that can distort and enlarge the uterus. Many women have uterine fibroids sometime during their lives. But most women don't know they have uterine fibroids because they often cause no symptoms. Your doctor may discover fibroids incidentally during a pelvic exam or prenatal ultrasound. Non-invasive treatment options are available.To learn more, visit this link.

Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure (LEEP)

If you have an abnormal cervical cancer screening result, our providers may suggest that you have a loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP) as part of your cervical cancer screening. A LEEP is one way to remove abnormal cells from the cervix. An electric current is passed through the loop, which cuts away a thin layer of the cervix. The procedure only takes a few minutes.

Endometrial Ablation

Endometrial ablation is a procedure that surgically destroys the lining of your uterus. The goal of endometrial ablation is to reduce menstrual flow. In some women, menstrual flow may stop completely. This procedure is used to treat many causes of heavy bleeding. If they heavy bleeding cannot be controlled with medication, this procedure may be used.
