Gynecologic Procedures

​Vulvar or vaginal biopsy is a procedure necessary to rule out cancer on any abnormal or unusual growth.

Colposcopy with possible cervical biopsy is basically an examination of the cervix under magnified lenses for abnormal pap smears.

LEEP procedure is done for precancerous cervical conditions or cervical dysplasia.

Hysteroscopy is a procedure where a camera is used to view the uterus from inside of the cavity. This procedure allows the doctor to identify any abnormal tissue or growth including polyps, fibroids, etc.

Hysterectomy is the most common non-pregnancy related major surgery performed on women in the United States. Approximately 600,000 women undergo this procedure every year. Hysterectomy refers to surgical removal of the uterus. Frequently, the ovaries are removed at the same time. Hysterectomy is widely accepted both by medical professionals and the public as appropriate treatment for uterine cancer and for various common non-cancerous uterine conditions that can produce disabling symptoms of pain, discomfort, uterine bleeding, emotional distress, and related complaints. Yet, while hysterectomy can alleviate uterine problems, less invasive treatments are available for some conditions.

Endometrial biopsy is a diagnostic test performed in a doctor’s office. The test is used to acquire a small tissue sample of the endometrium (lining of the uterus) for further examination. This test is most likely performed for abnormal uterine bleeding to rule out cancer.

Endometrial ablation is a procedure in which the uterine lining is destroyed either with a laser electrosurgery, or another method.
Operative laparoscopy is the procedure where a camera is placed into the abdomen to visualize and treat multiple gynecological conditions such as ovarian cysts or masses, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, PCOS, etc.
