Having these procedures done in our office with mobile anesthesia is safe, and should cost significantly less than having the procedure performed at the hospital or surgi-center.

Why suffer through heavy or unpredictable menses when treatment is effective, affordable and convenient? Our physicians can perform endometrial ablations under local anesthesia with minimal oral sedation required. An endometrial ablation destroys the cells inside the uterus responsible for heavy bleeding. It has over a 90% satisfaction rate and bleeding is markedly decreased, if not entirely eliminated. Ask your provider if endometrial ablation is right for you, or visit these sights below.
Abnormal bleeding caused by polyps and fibroids can not only be troublesome; it can be dangerous. Office hysteroscopy allows us to see, with a very small camera, the inside of the uterus to help evaluate and treat abnormal bleeding. This procedure can be done easily and with minimal discomfort.
LEEP (loop electrosurgical excision procedure) is used in the evaluation or treatment of an abnormal pap test. LEEP procedure removes abnormal cells from the cervix. We offer this in our office to maximize your convinience and your comfort. For more information, visit the following link: https://www.acog.org/publications/patient_education/bp110.cfm
Mirena, Paragard and Kyleena IUDs:
Looking for effective, easy but reversible contraception? An IUD may be your best bet. We offer many different types of IUDs in our office. The Mirena is an intrauterine device used as birth control or in the treatment of heavy menstrual bleeding. Mirena slowly releases small amounts of progesterone, a naturally occurring hormone, directly to the uterus. Mirena lasts for 5 years and may also be removed before this time. It is over 99% effective in preventing pregnancy. For more information, visit https://www.mirena-us.com/index.jsp
The ParaGard is a hormone-free intrauterine device. ParaGard works by preventing sperm from reaching and fertilizing the egg. ParaGard IUD can be used for up to 10 years. Because it is hormone-free, it may be used by women who either cannot or do not want to use hormonal birth control. It is over 99% effective in preventing pregnancy.

The Kyleena IUD is a low maintenance, pill-free birth control option. Kyleena is a hormone-releasing IUD (intrauterine device) that prevents pregnancy for up to 5 years. The small, flexible plastic T-shaped system slowly releases a progestin hormone called levonorgestrel (LNG) that is often used in birth control pills. Because Kyleena releases LNG into your uterus, only small amounts of the hormone enter your blood. Kyleena does not contain estrogen, and can be used whether or not you have given birth to a child.

Nexplanon is one of the most effective birth control options available. Nexplanon is a long-term birth control option that lasts for up to 3 years† to prevent pregnancy. It is an implant, not an IUD. Nexplanon a small, thin, and flexible contraceptive arm implant that is placed discreetly under the skin of your inner, upper arm by your health care provider. This contraceptive arm implant puts a steady, low dose of hormone into your bloodstream to prevent pregnancy. Nexplanon must be removed by the end of the third year and may be replaced by a new implant at the time of removal, if you wish to continue preventing pregnancy.
