Common procedures and treatments

When medication and non-invasive gynecological procedures do not relieve symptoms, surgery is often the most effective treatment. We use the most advanced, minimally-invasive techniques for reduced pain and a faster recovery. We offer the following procedures and treatment options:

  • Hysterectomy (removal of the uterus)
  • Myomectomy (removal of non-cancerous growths in the uterus called uterine fibroids or leiomyomas)
  • Uterine fibroid embolization (shrinking of uterine fibroids by blocking off their blood supply)
  • Endometriosis resection (removal of endometrial patches or displaced uterine lining on and around ovaries, fallopian tubes, bladder, intestines, and abdomen)
  • Sacrocolpopexy (repair of pelvic organ prolapse – a weaking of pelvic muscles commonly caused by menopause, childbirth or a hysterectomy)
  • Advanced laparoscopic and hysteroscopic surgery (minimally invasive options)
  • Dilation and Curettage (removal of abnormal tissue from inside the uterus)
  • Loop electrosurgical excision (LEEP) (removal of abnormal tissue on the surface of the cervix)
  • Uterine endometrial ablation (removal of a thin layer of tissue (endometrium) that lines the uterus to stop or reduce heavy menstrual bleeding)
  • Novasure (customized type of endometrial ablation procedure)
  • Urogynecology (including pelvic reconstruction surgery)

Midwifery/Doula

Midwives and/or doulas can be an important part of a mother’s birth plan, especially in instances of natural birth and non-hospital birth. They provide individualized education, counseling, prenatal care, hands-on assistance during labor and delivery, and postpartum support. The reasons for working with a midwife are many:

  • Better chances of a natural birth
  • Learning pain management techniques that can reduce the need for intervention, drugs and even cesarean birth
  • Decreased risk of preterm birth
  • Lower costs for clients and insurers
  • Increased chances of a positive start to breastfeeding

In addition, they offer a lifetime of holistic and comprehensive care including:

  • Annual checkups
  • Health screenings
  • Family planning
  • Obstetrical care
  • Menopause symptom management
  • Senior care
