As part of our commitment to offering comprehensive care for women, any scan or study that is indicated based on your exam can be performed in our offices. The luxury of having our own state-of-the-art imaging equipment is that you don’t leave our offices with a referral for imaging, which may take weeks to schedule, but instead, we are often able to schedule you right away, allowing us to begin treatment.
Combining multiple X-rays of the breast to create a three-dimensional picture of the breast, 3D mammograms offer the gold standard in breast cancer detection. Beyond offering the best, our Mammography Suite was designed and decorated to feel like a luxury spa. We understand the discomfort that a mammogram can present, both physically and emotionally, and we hope that the environment we have created will help ease your tension.
Ultrasound of Pelvis
Sounds waves are used to create images of the pelvic structures, including the uterus and ovaries. These images allow the physician to see inside the pelvis and identify abnormalities or causes of symptoms.
Ultrasound of Breast
Sounds waves are used to create images of the breast, allowing us an additional view of the breast tissue without mammography.
Bone Density Scan (DEXA)
A Dexa scan is a specialized X-ray that is used to measure the density of bone. It usually takes measurements of the lower spine and both hips. This allows us to screen for and manage conditions due to low bone density, including Osteoporosis, which can put women at risk for bone fractures.
These tests are used to evaluate women who are struggling with urinary leaking or other urinary symptoms. Pressure in and around the bladder, muscle function, flow rates, and other factors are analyzed in order to assist with developing a treatment plan.
More than just identifying gynecological and urinary issues, our Practice is equipped to treat them in our beautiful offices. We pride ourselves on being a one-stop-shop for Women’s Health, where you can see a Provider for your exam, receive additional testing, and, in most cases, undergo advanced treatments with us as well. This continuation of care allows us to specialize in You, and allows you to establish a meaningful and trusting relationship with your Provider.
If you’ve had an abnormal pap smear, you may need further evaluation with a colposcopy. A colposcopy, or “colpo”, is an examination of your cervix using a special microscope to identify any areas of unhealthy cells. One or more biopsies are usually taken during this procedure to confirm the level of cellular changes present.
A biopsy taken from the inside of the opening of your cervix to evaluate for abnormal cells. In office procedures.
A procedure that uses freezing gas to destroy precancerous cells on the cervix. After these unhealthy cells are destroyed, the body can replace them with new, healthy cells.
Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure (LEEP)
If abnormal cells are found on your pap or colposcopy, this treatment may be recommended to help prevent further changes and avoid cervical cancer. A small electrical wire loop is used to remove the abnormal cells from your cervix during this in-office procedure, after your cervix has been numbed with a cervical block.
Dilation & Curettage (D&C)
During this procedure a physician removes abnormal tissue from the lining of your uterus. This tissue is often sent off for biopsy to help diagnose causes of certain gynecological problems such as abnormal vaginal bleeding.
Looking for a cutting-edge way to treat heavy periods? This is an in-office procedure that treats heavy menstrual periods in just minutes by destroying the lining of your uterus.
A biopsy of tissue from the lining of the uterus used to diagnose a variety of gynecological conditions.
Hystero is latin for 'uterus' while “scope” or “scopy” means 'to view' — just like a telescope. Essentially, this procedure enables us to look inside your uterus in order to diagnose and treat any abnormal symptoms.
IUD Insertion and Removal
Interested in a long-acting and reversible option for pregnancy protection? An Intrauterine Device (IUD) may be the way to go. An IUD is a small T-shaped device that sits in your uterus and works in a variety of ways to protect you from pregnancy, and helps women who struggle with heavy and excessively painful periods. This can be inserted by one of our providers during a quick office visit, and removed just as easily.
This hormone-releasing implant is the most effective birth control method available today. Placed in our office, the matchstick sized rod is inserted just under the skin in the upper inner arm for worry free, long acting (3 years) pregnancy protection.
Polyps are tissue growths that can occur all over the body. Sometimes they grow in the lining of the uterus or on the cervix and need to be removed.
