In-office gynecological procedures use noninvasive, innovative technology to diagnose or treat OB/GYN conditions. Your doctor completes numerous procedures in-office with local anesthetic, so you’re awake but don’t feel pain. You’ll go home the day of an in-office procedure and can often resume everyday activities soon after.
You might require an in-office procedure if you have one of the following gynecological conditions:
Your doctor lets you know if your condition requires a “wait and see approach” or surgery to prevent serious complications.
The minimally-invasive gynecological procedure you might require depends on your condition, your health, and whether you’d like to have children in the future. Your practitioner might recommend:
Your doctor uses a colposcopy to closely examine your vulva, vagina, and cervix to check for signs of cervical cancer. She might recommend a colposcopy after an abnormal pap test or if you have genital warts.
During an endometrial biopsy, your gynecologist takes a sample of tissue from your uterus and sends it to a lab to diagnose certain gynecological conditions. She might recommend an EMB if you have abnormal menstrual bleeding or bleeding after menopause.
A cystometrogram is a quick 20-minute procedure that allows your gynecologist to diagnose and treat urinary stress incontinence or other bladder problems. She inserts a tiny catheter into your bladder and fills it with a sterile solution to evaluate bladder function.
During a loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP), your provider uses a wire loop heated by an electric current to remove abnormal or cancerous tissue and allow healthy tissue to grow in its place.
During endometrial ablation, your gynecologist removes a thin layer of endometrial tissue that lines your uterus. The procedure helps reduce heavy menstrual bleeding and is an option for many women who don’t plan on having children in the future.
Fractional dilation and curettage, or D&C, is a procedure your provider uses to diagnose gynecological conditions and remove tissue from your uterus, such as a miscarriage, precancerous endometrial tissue, uterine polyps, and fibroid tumors.
