We all lead busy lives. Unfortunately, health issues don’t take into account your hectic schedule before impacting your life. Whether you’re in your 20s looking for permanent birth control or in your 80s suffering from urinary incontinence, same-day, outpatient procedures are an easy and effective way to resolve many of the medical conditions that women of all ages face — without having to put your whole life on pause.
Our Florida OB/GYN specialists offer a wide-range of minimally-invasive, same-day treatments and solutions for common issues like heavy periods, urinary incontinence and birth control. By performing these procedures right in our comfortable office setting, we're able to offer the warm, convenient and personalized care you deserve.
Procedures completed in the comfort of our office eliminate the need for hospitalization and general anesthesia, resulting in a more pleasant experience and quicker recovery time.
Our board-certified obstetricians and gynecologists are trained and experienced with the most advanced in-office treatments available, including:
As an expectant mother, you want to feel confident knowing you're doing everything possible to keep your child healthy. As partners in women's health, we offer complete pregnancy care, starting with fertility and conception and continuing through the birth of your child and beyond. Learn more
The best preventive care measure is the annual well-woman exam. Well-woman care includes a general health history, a sexual health history, a review of medications, contraceptive counseling, menopause counseling, a physical exam and, if needed, laboratory or other testing. Learn more
Excessive or heavy bleeding can impact a woman's life in many ways. NovaSure® and other hysterectomy alternatives are 5-minute, one-time, permanent and non-invasive procedures for premenopausal women who are finished childbearing. Learn more
Many women feel embarrassed about infertility, and yet it's more prevalent than you might think. Learning more about the causes and possible solutions of your infertility is the first step to make empowered and informed decisions about what to do next. Learn more
An IUD is a small, plastic, T-shaped device placed inside a woman’s uterus to prevent pregnancy and is a popular long-term, reversible birth control method. Both insertion and removal is easy and quick. There are several types of IUDs available. Learn more
A pap smear is when a doctor checks for changes that could indicate cervical cancer caused by the HPV virus. How often a woman should get a pap smear depends on several health factors, but the general rule is every 3-5 years starting at age 21. The procedure only takes a few minutes. Learn more
A polypectomy is a procedure that removes polyps from the inside of your colon or large intestine. Using minimally invasive tools like Resectr™, our surgeons are able to accurately and efficiently target polyp tissue for removal without the risk of bleeding or uterine perforation. Learn more
Talking about sex and your health can feel awkward, but it's important — not to mention it shows your partner that you care about their health. We can test for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and infections (STIs) like chlamydia and gonorrhea, as well as many others. Learn more
Urodynamic studies (UDS) test how well your bladder, sphincters, and urethra hold and release urine. These tests are commonly used to diagnose urinary incontinence or other urinary health issues. Learn more
3D/4D ultrasound is just as safe as conventional 2D ultrasound, but it uses additional computer processing to provide more life-like images of your baby. With the added dimension of time in a 4D ultrasound, images appear to be moving in real time. Learn more
If your pap smear test comes back abnormal, a colposcopy is often the next step. This quick and painless procedure can help determine the cause of the abnormality. Many times, abnormal pap smears are caused by vaginal inflammation or infection. A colposcopy can help your doctor find out. Learn more
For women experiencing abnormal uterine bleeding, an endometrial biopsy may be needed to determine the cause. The procedure is performed by using a thin, hollow catheter to collect tissue samples. Learn more
A hysteroscopy may be used as a diagnostic tool — and to perform endometrial ablation, myomectomy or placement of permanent birth control. The benefits of a hysteroscopy is that it requires no major incision of any kind and patients typically recover quickly. Learn more
LEEP Excision of the Cervix is typically performed after a colposcopy and cervical biopsy have confirmed abnormal pap test results. The procedure involves cutting away abnormal cells from the cervix using a thin, electrified wire loop.
Pelvic floor dysfunction (PFD) can be caused by infections, pregnancy or childbirth, poor posture from chronic low back pain, trauma, or following surgery. External and internal therapy can help treat the factors contributing to your PFD. Learn more
When an expectant mother and her unborn baby carry different Rhesus (Rh) protein factors, their condition is called Rh incompatibility. Doctors strongly recommend Rh(D) blood typing and antibody testing for all pregnant women during their first visit for pregnancy-related care. Learn more
Sometimes a sonohysterogram is needed to investigate abnormal uterine bleeding. It involves inserting a thin catheter through your cervix opening, near the endometrial cavity, where a tiny amount of sterile solution is released and an ultrasound is run. Learn more
A vulvectomy involves the removal of precancerous or cancerous tissue located on the external genitalia of women. Different classifications of the vulvectomy refer to the size and depth of the tissue removed depending on the severity and extent of the diseased cells. Learn more
Vaginal prolapse can happen to any woman. It is a common condition that occurs in about one-third of women in the U.S. Most of those who experience it have had a vaginal birth. As women age, the risk of a vaginal prolapse increases. Learn more
Women of any age can get fibroids, but they are most common in women who are childbearing age. Fibroids are non-cancerous growths that can appear on your uterus. If left alone, they can grow and cause a lot of pain, discomfort and heavy periods. Learn more
Tubal ligation, which is commonly referred to as “tubal sterilization” or “having your tubes tied,” is a permanent form of birth control. Women who no longer wish to have children may opt for the procedure. Learn more
Has your doctor recommended a salpingectomy procedure? There might be several reasons for this, such as a preventative measure against cancer or as a contraceptive. However, you might be concerned when you hear the word “surgery.”
