Nothing is more important than being able to get all the gynecologic care you need in one location, where the doctors know your history, and you receive truly personal care. The team at The Ob-Gyn Center offer in-office procedures so that you can receive comprehensive care without the inconvenience of running around to other labs and offices. If you have questions about in-office procedures, call the office in Las Vegas, Nevada, or use the online booking feature to schedule an appointment.
Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive technique used to diagnose conditions and perform surgical procedures. The key instrument, a laparoscope, contains lighting and a camera in a long, thin tube. It provides a magnified view that allows your doctor to examine the targeted area.
If surgery is needed, then surgical instruments that are specially designed to fit through narrow tubes are used. All these tubes are inserted through several very small incisions.
The small incisions cause significantly less trauma compared to the single, long incision used for traditional open surgery. As a result, laparoscopic procedures offer advantages such as:
Laparoscopy also allows some types of procedures to be done in the office, so you can go home the same day.
These are a few examples of gynecologic procedures that may be performed using laparoscopy, either in the office or in the hospital:
Your doctor can also repair pelvic organ prolapse using laparoscopy.
A hysteroscopy is another type of minimally invasive procedure that’s performed in the office at The Ob-Gyn Center, where they use the cutting-edge Endosee® office hysteroscopy.
The Endosee is an innovative handheld device that’s gently inserted into your uterus by going through your vagina and cervix. The Endosee has a long, narrow tube with a camera at one end and a built-in video screen at the other end that gives your doctor a clear view inside your uterus.
An Endosee procedure is done to diagnose the underlying cause of problems such as abnormal uterine bleeding or to diagnose precancerous conditions. Procedures that may be performed during a hysteroscopy include a biopsy, endometrial curettage, and removal of uterine fibroids and polyps.
Essure was a permanent method of birth control in which two small implants were inserted into your fallopian tubes, where they caused scarring that closed the tubes. Due to side effects and injuries, Essure was taken off the market in 2018.
If you had an Essure implant, it’s important to have it removed. The doctors at The Ob-Gyn Center offer this surgical procedure in the office.
