In Office Surgical Procedures


 

As we expand out services to our patients, we are now offering permanent menstrual flow reduction and permanent sterilization in the office. These procedures are done hysteroscopically (through the vagina, into the uterus) without any incisions. We provide oral and intra muscular pain relief and you are awake and able to follow with the procedure as shown on the video screen. Many of our patients appreciate the lower cost and quicker procedure and recovery time involved with in-office procedures.

Endometrial ablation is a hysteroscopically assisted procedure. Hysteroscopy allows us to evaluate the internal contour of the uterus to confirm that you are a good ablation candidate. Then the ablation procedure is initiated with either an electrical mesh or a hot water balloon. It is approximately a 30 minute procedure. The pain associated is usually similar to severe menstrual cramping. Recovery time is approximately 24-48 hours.

Essure permanent birth control is a hysteroscopically performed procedure to block the fallopian tubes (the tubes that carry the sperm to the egg and then the embryo to the uterus), so that sperm cannot fertilize the egg. It is approximately a 30 minute procedure done under camera guidance. The pain associated is usually similar to menstrual like cramping. Recovery time is approximately 24 hours.
