When surgery is necessary, OGI physicians are qualified and experienced in providing surgeries for gynecological problems. We offer a full-range of procedures to provide the best outcome for our patients and strive to provide the least invasive, most convenient surgeries that meet our patient’s needs.
Colposcopy: A procedure to diagnose and treat abnormal pap smears.
Endometrial Ablation: A procedure to treat the uterine lining and prevent heavy bleeding. After a successful endometrial ablation, most women will have little or no menstrual bleeding.
Endometrial Biopsy: The physician performs a biopsy to obtain a sample of the lining of the uterus.
Essure Procedure: A permanent birth control procedure. Small flexible micro-inserts™ are inserted into your fallopian tubes which works with your body to create a natural barrier to prevent pregnancy.
Hysterosalpingogram: A HSG is an X-ray test that looks at the inside of the uterus and fallopian tubes and the area around them. This procedure is for women who are having a difficult time conceiving.
Hysterectomy: An inpatient operation to remove a woman’s uterus. In some cases, the ovaries and fallopian tubes also are removed.
Hysteroscopic surgery: An endoscopic procedure used to visualize the uterine cavity and treat conditions such as intrauterine adhesions, uterine fibroids, endometrial polyps, or uterine developmental abnormalities (congenital defects).
Laparoscopic surgery: A surgical procedure useful for the diagnosis and treatment of infertility, endometriosis and pelvic pain. This operation allows a direct view of the uterus, tubes, ovaries and pelvis in general.
LEEP: Loop Electrical Excision Procedure to remove abnormal cervical tissue for treatment of abnormal Pap Smears and HPV.
Microsurgery: Many women who have borne children decide to have a tubal ligation as a means of contraception, thus blocking a fertilized egg from passing to the uterus for implantation. However, some have a change of mind later and wish to have the procedure reversed. A specially trained surgeon can perform a reversal through a microsurgical tubal reanastomosis.
Myomectomy: Surgical removal of fibroids, with reconstruction and repair of the uterus. Fibroids may cause heavy bleeding, pelvic pain or pressure, urinary frequency or incontinence. A fibroid that has changed the wall of the uterus can sometimes cause infertility or miscarriages.
Pelvic Support surgery: Surgery to correct pelvic support disorders. These occur when weakened support allows the bladder, rectum, intestines, or uterus to drop down (prolapse) and, in some cases, protrude into the vaginal wall or even protrude through the opening of the vagina.
Urethra and Bladder Surgery: Surgical treatment of stress incontinence includes Tension-free vaginal tape (TVT) surgery or a Sub-Urethral sling.
Vaginal Reconstructive and Cosmetic Rejuvenation Surgery: Surgery to decrease the internal and external vaginal diameters as well as build up and strengthen the perineal body (the area immediately outside the vagina and above the anus). It effectively enhances the vaginal muscle tone, strength, control and improves sexual function.
