Endometrial Ablation
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.

Hysteroscopy
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.

Colposcopy
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.

LEEP
The loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP) is a common procedure that uses a small electric wire to treat dysplasia (abnormal cell growth).

Zika - What You Need to Know
Last year was marked by an intense amount of concern for the growing threat of the Zika virus and its impact on pregnant women and babies. This year the threat remains elevated, and, despite increased public awareness, it still is important to reinforce that physicians still do not have a vaccine to prevent or medication to treat the virus.
