Laparoscopy, Hysteroscopy, Dilation and Curettage (D and C), Pelvic Prolapse, and Bladder Sling
Laparoscopy is a minimally-invasive procedure performed in the abdomen and pelvis through small incisions with the aid of a camera. Laparoscopic procedures improve the health of a patient by diagnosing and treating gynecological disorders. Treatment procedures may include removal of abnormal tissue, lesions, or dissolving tissue adhesions.
Hysteroscopy is a procedure that improves health by diagnosing and treating problems of the uterus in women of all ages. Hysteroscopy is performed using a thin tube that is inserted into the vagina to examine the cervix and inside of the uterus. This minimally invasive procedure allows the surgeon to simultaneously diagnose and treat issues such as uterine disorders, including abnormal bleeding, fibroids, polyps and potentially cancer.
Dilation and Curettage is a procedure performed to remove tissue from inside of the uterus to provide samples for diagnosing or treating some uterine conditions including heavy vaginal bleeding, post-menopausal bleeding, and hyperplasia.
Pelvic Prolapse is a procedure that improves health of the patient by reinforcing weakened walls of the bladder and vagina to improve vaginal bulging, prolapse, and bladder function.
A Bladder Sling is a surgically implanted mesh or human tissue that supports the bladder and vaginal wall. A Bladder Sling improves the health of the patient by relieving symptoms of urinary stress incontinence.
