Endometrial ablation is an outpatient procedure that reduces orstops heavy menstrual bleeding. The treatment takes less than an hour; patients go home the same day. During this procedure, a small device is inserted through the cervix into the uterus. Heat or electric currents are released from the device to ablate the uterine lining.
A hysteroscopy is a basic diagnostic procedure (sometimes used in treating gynecologic conditions) that helps physicians determine the cause of bleeding or difficulty in conceiving.
A colposcopy is a diagnostic exam that may prescribed after abnormal findings in a Pap test. This simple procedure is oftentimes performed to take a biopsy.
The loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP) is a common procedure that uses a small electric wire to treat dysplasia (abnormal cell growth).
