  • Novasure: Endometrial ablation
    This is an office procedure to treat heavy menstrual bleeding in the pre-menopausal woman. This will replace the need for hormones or major surgery to control the heavy bleeding. Menorrhagia (heavy menstrual bleeding) occurs in up to 1 in 5 women. Endometrial ablation with Novasure will lessen the monthly bleeding and many women will have no bleeding altogether. Bleeding, cramping and PMS are minimized after this procedure. The ablation procedure takes less than 90 seconds and is performed under local anesthesia in our office. <www.novasure.com>
     
  • Essure: Hysteroscopic tubal ligation
    This procedure is permanent sterilization performed through a hysteroscope (camera into the uterus). Tiny coils are placed into the fallopian tube to scar the tubes and cause sterilization. The procedure takes about 15 minutes and has a minimal recovery time. This can be done under local anesthesia. <www.essure.com>
     
  • Gardasil: HPV vaccine
    Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) is the virus that causes cervical cancer. There is now a vaccine to prevent from getting the most common types of this virus. We can now prevent cancer of the cervix with a simple vaccine. <www.gardasil.com>
     
  • Halo: Breast aspiration screening
    Using a breast pump, we can retrieve a sample cells form the breast ducts to screen for abnormal cells that can increase your risk of breast cancer. A 5 minute painless procedure can help detect early signs of breast cancer. <www.neomatrix.com>
