Treatment for Excessive Menstrual Bleeding
If you suffer from heavy menstrual bleeding, also known as menorrhagia, an endometrial ablation may be the solution. Our Physicians perform the *Gynecare Thermachoice Endometrial Ablation and the *Novasure Endometrial Ablation. Both of which are minimally invasive and highly effective. It is performed as an outpatient alternative to a hysterectomy for the treatment of heavy periods.
Recovery is fast and most women can return to their normal activities by the next day. To learn more about the procedures:

A laparoscope is a small telescope that is inserted into the abdomen (belly button) through a small incision (cut). It brings light into the abdomen so the doctor can see inside. Laparoscopy is usually done on an outpatient basis, meaning you don't have to stay in the hospital overnight. Laparoscopy is often used to diagnose causes of abdominal pain. If the doctor finds that he or she can treat the condition during the procedure, diagnostic laparoscopy can turn into operative laparoscopy. This procedure is used to treat many health problems. Laparoscopes can be used to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis, fibroids, adhesions, ovarian cysts, and infertility. Before undergoing laparoscopy, you and your doctor will discuss the procedure and any other treatment.
Dilation and Curettage (D&C)
This surgical procedure is used to remove the lining (endometrium) and contents of the uterus. The D & C is most often used to diagnose and treat abnormal uterine bleeding. It is also sometimes used to treat miscarriage. We normally perform this procedure in a hospital or outpatient surgery setting.
A hysteroscope is a camera that is used to look inside the uterus. This procedure can be used to help remove polyps, uterine lining, and fibroids. In most cases this is done with a dilation and curettage(D&C).
Resection for Uterine Fibroids
The *Myosure or *Versapoint systems can be used to remove uterine fibroids or polyps. The surgery is done using a camera(hysterscope) that has a special instrument that helps vaporize the fibroid or polyp. With this procedure there is no cutting of the skin or sutures, therefore recovery is quick. It is an outpatient procedure.
