Pregnancy Care

Preconception Counseling We stress the importance of a preconceptual visit. We will cover your nutrition, lifestyle choices, work/home environment and your support systems. Genetic counseling is encouraged because it enables future parents to be fully informed about their individual situation. However, we respect the fact that some couples have religious or other personal reasons for not wanting genetic testing. Alternatively, some families may have experienced tragic genetic problems and may request testing that is not generally considered standard in the mother’s age group. Since the parents are the ones who must live with the consequences of these choices, we feel that they are the ones who should make the final decision on genetic testing.

Minor Surgery

When medication and non-invasive procedures are unable to relieve your symptoms, surgery remains the accepted and most effective treatment for a range of gynecologic conditions.

Yet open surgery can result in significant pain, trauma, a long recovery process and threat to surrounding organs and nerves. For women facing gynecologic surgery, the period of pain, discomfort and extended time away from normal daily activities that usually follows traditional surgery can cause significant anxiety. Fortunately, less invasive options are available. Some gynecologic procedures enable surgeons to access the target anatomy using a vaginal approach, which may not require an external...

Endometrial Ablation

What is Endometrial Ablation? Many women experience heavy menstrual bleeding at some point in their lives. But for one in four women, every period is heavy. Doctors call this condition "menorrhagia”. Endometrial ablation is used to treat menorrhagia by removal (or “ablation”) of the inner lining of the uterus. The procedure is minimally invasive and usually takes less than an hour. It’s usually done on an outpatient basis, so if you have an endometrial ablation, you’ll most likely be able to return home on the same day. Link to: NovaSure Endometrial ablation is not recommended for women who: suffer from uterine cancer, PID, or an active urinary tract infection have certain types of uterine abnormalities use an IUD intend to become pregnant are seeking to use the procedure...
