With laparoscopy, surgery is performed through one or more small incisions, using small tubes and a miniature video camera and surgical instruments. Laparoscopic surgery is typically performed in an outpatient surgical facility.
In-office surgery is also an option offered for many procedures. Hysteroscopy, D&C, and endometrial ablation may be performed in the office in many cases, utilizing anesthesia. This allows our patients to avoid the cost and inconvenience of the hospital. More importantly, our patients can return to their lives quickly and with minimal interruption while experiencing less pain. Depending on the situation, minimally invasive procedures may be recommended for:
- Irregular or heavy menstruation
- Removal of uterine or cervical polyps
- Hysteroscopic IUD removal
- Cervical Cryotherapy
- Endometrial Biopsy
