In-Office Procedures


Are you looking for effective birth control without a daily pill? You may want to consider a hormonal IUD. IUDs are 99% effective a preventing unwanted pregnancies and they oftentimes have the added benefit of lighter to no periods. The Mirena IUD is for women who have had a child whereas the Kyleena IUD is for women who have not had a child and offers 3 years of contraception. We will schedule you for an insertion appointment a few days following the end of your period. After insertion, your physician will perform an ultrasound transvaginally to confirm proper placement. Approximately 10 weeks later, our ultrasound technician will perform a second ultrasound to verify the IUD has remained in place.


Hysteroscopy is a procedure that enables your Doctor to look carefully at the uterine lining using a thin viewing instrument (a hysteroscope). The Doctor may perform a hysteroscopy if you experience any of the following conditions, heavy or long periods, bleeding between periods, postmenopausal bleeding, severe menstrual cramps or infertility. Local anesthesia or light sedation is used and you can return to normal activities the next day.


A colposcopy lets your doctor examine the cervix and vaginal walls in more detail through a special magnifying device called a colposcope. It can detect problems of the cervix that cannot be seen with the eye alone. If an area of abnormal cells is seen, your doctor may decide that a biopsy is needed. This is normally done when a Pap test result shows abnormal changes in the cells of the cervix.


Cryotherapy is a technique that freezes abnormal tissue, which later sheds. This procedure is normally done for any mildly abnormal Pap smear. Patients may return to normal activities the next day.

Wart and Skin Tag Removal

Warts and skin tags are two of the most common skin conditions that people suffer from.  If you notice a growth on your genital area, it is important to not try to treat the condition at home on your own.  Allow our physicians to offer you a diagnosis along with an effective method of removal.

Bartholin’s Cyst Incision and Drainage

The Bartholin’s Gland is located just outside the opening of the vagina; it secretes mucous to lubricate the vagina.  The gland opening can become blocked causing mucous to build up in the gland. This produces a Bartholin’s cyst that can become enlarged. If the cyst becomes infected with bacteria, a Bartholin’s abscess is formed that can be large and painful.  Bartholin’s gland incision and drainage is an in-office procedure where an opening is made in the skin overlying the abscess and the Bartholin’s cyst is drained.
