We pride ourselves on the comprehensive gynecological care we extend to women of all ages. We provide a wide range of gynecological services, from annual exams and fertility evaluations to treatment of menstrual disorders and urinary incontinence. We also offer the following services:

Colposcopy

A colposcopy is performed for a close examination of the cervix and vagina to specifically look for signs of disease. Colposcopies are usually performed to help diagnose conditions such as cervical cancer, vaginal cancer, cervicitis, genital warts or pre-cancerous cells in the cervix or vagina. Using a microscope device, your doctor will take an extensive look at your cervix and possibly use some vinegar-water to make any abnormal areas be more noticeable. If questionable areas are noticed, a biopsy may be taken for further testing. This will feel like a pinch and may cause some mild cramping.

Colposcopies generally take 20 – 30 minutes. Light bleeding or colored discharged may be present following the procedure. Patients should refrain from sexual intercourse for at least one week.

NovaSure

NovaSure is a treatment that gently removes the lining of the uterus and is performed to control heavy bleeding. Performed in the office, this is a one-time procedure to lighten or stop your period. During the procedure, a slender wand is inserted into the uterus which extends mesh into the uterus. A measured radio frequency is delivered through the mesh. The mesh is then pulled back into the wand and removed from the uterus. This minimally-invasive procedure (no incisions) is safe and quick. Patients report some cramping after the procedure, but little to no pain.
