If you’re a woman, you’re busy. That’s why the doctors at Women’s Health Associates perform several different procedures in the comfort and convenience of our offices. These procedures are listed below.
Endometrial ablation is an in-office procedure that can be used to treat heavy periods or other abnormal heavy bleeding. During a NovaSure endometrial ablation procedure, we use an electrosurgical tool to destroy a thin layer of the lining of the uterus. This decreases the amount of lining that regrows on a monthly basis and for the majority of patients, results in a significant decrease in the amount of bleeding they experience. You should not consider an endometrial ablation procedure if you want to preserve your ability to become pregnant. To hear from women who have had the NovaSure procedure, click here.
A hysteroscopy is an in-office procedure that allows your doctor to look inside your uterus in order to diagnose and treat causes of abnormal bleeding. A hysteroscopy can help identify the cause of heavy or lengthy menstrual flow, as well as bleeding between periods or after menopause. The procedure is performed using a hysteroscope, a thin, lighted telescope-like device that is inserted through the vagina and into the uterus.
Essure is a permanent birth control method performed by placing tiny, flexible inserts into the openings of the fallopian tubes. These are inserted into the uterus through the vagina and cervix, without any incisions. For three months after the procedure, your body forms scar tissue around the inserts and eventually blocks the fallopian tubes. Three months after the initial procedure an Essure confirmation test must be performed to confirm the fallopian tubes are fully blocked.
Colposcopy is an in-office procedure that we perform to evaluate abnormal Pap test results. The colposcope provides a magnified view of the cervix so that any abnormalities can be further investigated. LEEP (Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure) is a procedure performed to remove abnormal cells from the cervix.
