Uterine fibroids are a common cause of heavy menstrual flow and pelvic pain. Our physicians are experts in medical and surgical management of uterine fibroids.
Pregnancy and childbirth are the biggest risk factors for pelvic organ prolapse, in which the bladder, uterus, intestines and rectum bulge into the vagina. Pelvic organ prolapse is treated with pessaries (supportive device worn in the vagina), physical therapy and/or surgery.
Ovarian cystectomy, the removal of a fluid filled growth on the ovary, can usually be accomplished laparoscopically. Sometimes cystectomy requires opening the abdomen, or laparotomy
Hysterectomy, the removal of the uterus, is done only if necessary. The fallopian tubes and cervix are usually removed at the same time. The ovaries may be removed also, depending on the indication for the surgery.
Hysteroscopy allows the physician to look inside the uterus, examine for polyps or other abnormalities, and take biopsies. These exams can be done in the office or at the hospital.
Endometrial ablation is a treatment option for heavy but regular menstrual bleeding. Endometrial ablation can be done in the office with sedation or at the hospital with anesthesia.
