Welcome

We are an all-female board-certified physician group dedicated to providing the best possible care for women of all ages. We focus on all aspects of women's health from family planning to menopause management including general care and wellness.

Mirena

In-Office Procedures

Our physicians perform the following procedures in the office. These in-office procedures offer our patients convenience, require less time, and offer a comfortable safe environment.

Treatment for Heavy Periods/Bleeding

Endometrial Ablations are common, minimally invasive alternatives to hysterectomy.  Typically used to treat abnormal bleeding problems, endometrial ablations can be performed in the office or in an outpatient setting when they are performed alongside other procedures.  They typically take less than 10 minutes to perform.  While physicians used to have to remove the entire uterus to solve some issues, it is now fairly common to use one of several devices to destroy a thin layer of the lining of the uterus in order to stop heavy bleeding.  Two procedures which we perform in our office are Novasure and Thermachoice.

Permanent Contraception

These procedures, which are performed in the office setting, take less than 5 minutes and require no incisions or anesthesia. Essure is a procedure in which a hysteroscope is used to block the fallopian tubes. There are no hormonal changes.

Reversible/Long-term

Mirena is a soft, flexible IUD that releases small amounts of hormone locally into your uterus. It gives you birth control that lasts for as long as you want, for up to 5 years. It also helps to treat heavy periods, resulting in shorter and lighter periods.

Paragard is an intrauterine contraceptive that lasts as long as you want up to 10 years.

Implanon is a single-rod long acting reversible hormonal contraceptive that is inserted just under the skin of a woman's upper arm.

Hysteroscopy

Hysteroscopy helps physicians diagnose and treat uterine problems. The hysteroscope which is a thin, telescope-like instrument is inserted into the uterus through the vagina and cervix in order to provide a way for physicians to look inside your uterus.  The images from the hysteroscope are transmitted to a monitor so the physician can see actual images of the inside of your uterus.  There is no incision for this procedure, and it can often be completed with limited or no anesthesia.

Sonohysterogram (SIS)

A sonohysterogram is a diagnostic procedure that does not require any anesthesia and is not considered a surgery.  It is a technique in which your physician injects fluid into your uterus through a tube in your vaginal canal and then performs an ultrasound on your uterus.  The fluid shows more detail of the inside of the uterus than when ultrasound is used alone, and is often ordered when a woman has had a normal ultrasound but is still having symptoms such as abnormal bleeding or infertility.

Ultrasound

An ultrasound creates pictures of the internal organs of the body from sound waves.  There is no radiation involved.  Some ultrasounds are performed when a device is placed outside of the body, and some ultrasounds are performed by placing a transducer in the vaginal canal.  These devices emit sound waves which then produce black and white images on a monitor.  Ultrasounds are safe to have in pregnancy and are regularly used to examine the pelvic organs for problems.

Genetic Testing

  • Panaroma Prenatal Testing- Panorama is a non-invasive prenatal test that looks for certain chromosome conditions in the baby. It requires only a blood draw and it is safe for mother and baby. At our office we offer this test at the second visit between 11 1/2 - 13 1/2 weeks at the same time as the ultrasound done for nuchal translucency.
  • BRACAnalysis ®: Hereditary Cancer Testing for Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer. - a genetic test that confirms the presence of a BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene mutation. BRCA mutations are responsible for the majority of hereditary breast and ovarian cancers. People with a mutation in either the BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene have risks of up to 87% for developing breast cancer and up to 44% for developing ovarian cancer by age 70. Mutation carriers previously diagnosed with cancer also have a significantly increased risk of developing a second primary cancer. Genetic testing, specifically the BRACAnalysis test, identifies patients who have these mutations.


    BRACAnalysis is a simple blood test or oral rinse sample to find out if you have the BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation. Knowing the results may help you and your healthcare provider act before cancer has a chance to develop.
