Hysteroscopic Polyp Removal or Myomectomy

Polyps and fibroids can be removed with a simple in-office or out-patient procedure. Hysteroscopic polyp removal or myomectomy allow women to keep all their female parts with this simple no incision procedure and eliminate annoying bleeding problems.

Endometrial ablation

Endometrial ablation is a procedure used to treat abnormal bleeding of the uterine lining. It will decrease the flow, intensity and frequency of your periods, or may even stop them all together. The goal is to remove as much of the endometrium as possible.

After endometrial ablation, menstrual flow will be greatly reduced or may stop entirely. Endometrial ablation is not appropriate for women wishing to have future children.
