Anesthesia and nursing care are provided by an anesthesiologist and experienced surgical registered nurse. This will usually save you considerable expense over a hospital or outpatient surgery setting yet provide the same safety which is always paramount.
For those who are experiencing heavy or abnormal flow with their menses, endometrial ablation, using the NovaSure® procedure, offers an excellent treatment option with a very high rate of patient satisfaction.

Hysteroscopic Tubal Occlusion for Permanent Sterilization
Permanent sterilization can now be accomplished incision free! Using methods, including the Essure® procedure, of a small scope placed through the cervix to visualize the internal aspect of the fallopian tube opening (hysteroscopy), permanent blockage can be accomplished by inserting a small soft coil. This causes the tube to scar down and thus prevents the sperm from reaching the egg. Once a simple dye study is done to confirm closure, you can be assured of an extremely effective form of permanent contraception.

Transcervical sterilization has moved femaile sterilization from a minimally invasive laparoscopic technique, to a less invasive hysteroscopic procedure. The small transcervical scope referred to previously can also be used to evaluate and often treat causes of abnormal uterine fibroid bleeding, such as polyps or adhesions and give you uterine polyps treatment options.
Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure
Loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP) is the process of removal of the surface of the cervix containing abnormal PAP cells or potentially precancerous cells (dysplasia, CIN or HSIL). This is a procedure which is usually done under local but in some cases, it is preferable to do this with the benefit of anesthesia.
