Hysteroscopy D&C

Our surgeons have experience in performing dilation and curettage procedures in women, where a portion of the uterus is removed for treatment or diagnosis. Often, this procedure is performed along with a hysterectomy. It can also be done to investigate cells or to repair damaged tissue. Patients may experience mild pain and possible spotting post-op and can return to normal activity within a few days.

Endometrial Ablation

During this procedure, our professional medical team will ablate, or destroy, the endometrium, or uterine lining. This operation takes less than an hour and can be performed with the use of saline, lasers, electricity, freezing, or heating. Patients can expect to receive some type of anesthesia during this procedure and afterward can expect cramping, nausea, spotting, and discharge. For those patients who are planning on having pregnancies later in life, this procedure is not recommended.

Tubal Ligation Procedure

Our office is the only place in Effingham to perform sterilization procedures. This surgery is referred to as “having your tubes tied,” and it involves the blocking of a woman’s fallopian tubes or the insertion of an implant. Tubal ligation is a permanent birth control method. Most patients receive some type of anesthesia for this procedure and can return to normal activities the day after the surgery.

Our team members understand the importance and sensitivity of women’s healthcare and strive to provide personalized, professional care. We pride ourselves on our doctors, nurses, and anesthesiologists’ experience and the quality of our facility. To learn more about our capabilities or schedule your procedure, contact us today!
