The physicians at Brookside Gyecology specialize in several gynecological procedures that can be performed right in our Greenwich CT office, making a hospital visit unnecessary. Below, find a list of our in-office procedures and click their links for more information.
- Essure® Sterilization
Essure is a permanent birth control procedure that works with the body to create a natural barrier against pregnancy.
- Her Option®
Her Option® is a safe and effective ablation procedure used to treat excessive menstrual bleeding (menorrhagia).
A hysteroscope is a thin, lighted telescope-like device. It is inserted through your vagina into your uterus. The hysteroscope transmits the image of your uterus onto a screen. This allows the doctor to see the inside of the uterus during the procedure. Hysteroscopy can be used to diagnose or treat a problem.
Colposcopy is a diagnostic procedure done when a Pap test result shows abnormal changes in the cells of the cervix. Colposcopy provides more information about the abnormal cells. Colposcopy also may be used to further assess genital warts on the cervix, cervicitis (an inflamed cervix), bleeding and benign (not cancer) growths, such as polyps and pain.
LEEP is one way to remove abnormal cells from the cervix that may be identified by a PAP test. LEEP uses a thin wire loop that acts like a scalpel (surgical knife). An electric current is passed through the loop, which cuts away a thin layer of the cervix.
