Our Services — In-Office Procedures
Many procedures can now be done in the comfort of our office rather than in the hospital. If your doctor has recommended one of these procedures, she will perform the procedure with either no anesthesia or with medication to help with relaxation. We may also at times use a pill or shot to lessen discomfort.
The procedures may be to help diagnose a problem, such as a colposcopy for an abnormal pap smear or a hysteroscopy to evaluate the uterus for abnormal bleeding. We may also perform in-office procedures to treat a problem. This may include the treatment of precancers of the cervix and some causes of abnormal bleeding. We can also perform a sterilization procedure in the office setting.
Your doctor will talk with you in detail about the nature of your procedure and also what will be done to assure your comfort.
