Office Based Procedures

Due to advances in technology, traditional procedures that were performed in the operating room can now be performed in the office setting safely. The benefit of office procedures is that you don’t have to get general anesthesia and you don’t have to take extra time off work.

Office procedures commonly done are:

Colposcopy: This involves using a big microscope to take a look at the cells on your cervix to determine if there are any abnormal cells and to take biopsies of those abnormal cells

LEEP (Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure)

LEEP (Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure)

A procedure to remove pre-cancer cells on your cervix. This is usually done in the doctor's office after a diagnosis of CIN 2 or greater on your colposcopy result.

Endosee Hysteroscopy

Endosee Hysteroscopy

Hysteroscopy is the way to look into your uterus. Due to advancing technology, you no longer need to go to the OR for a hysteroscopy. This can be done at the doctor’s office. We utilize the Endosee system.

NOVASURE ABLATION

NOVASURE ABLATION

Many women have abnormal and or heavy bleeding. They are not ready to have their uterus removed and look for a procedure that may alleviate their problem without them having to go to the Operating room (OR). Novasure Ablation can help control their bleeding without having them undergo a hysterectomy.

Dilation and Curettage

Dilation and Curettage

This is done in the office to remove retained products of conception, or retained blood clots. We use a manual evacuator in the office.

Vulvar Biopsy

Vulvar Biopsy

This is done in the office to remove any masses or lesions or skin tags in areas of concern for the patient.

Removal of genital warts

Removal of genital warts

Warts can be removed by cutting, burning, or freezing.  Depending on how much time a patient has, warts are usually treated over 4-6 weeks unless it is only one lesion. Lesions have to be sent to pathology for confirmation that they are genital warts and not vulvar cancer, but after the confirmation, serial weekly cryofreezing can be done or destruction of the lesions can also be applied by TCA in the office on a weekly basis.

Drainage of Bartholin’s glands

Drainage of Bartholin’s glands

A lot of women get “bumps” in the vaginal area. This is usually a Bartholin gland inflammation or abscess. We usually give local anesthesia and drain the abscess or infection in the office.

Sometimes we place a catheter in the abscess to facilitate continuous drainage
