Manhattan Women’s Health and Tribeca Women’s Health perform many in-office minimally invasive procedures, such as:
A hysteroscopy allows your doctor to look inside your uterus. It’s often used to diagnose or treat conditions related to abnormal bleeding. As an in-office procedure, a diagnostic hysteroscopy is used to determine the cause of abnormal bleeding, such as uterine polyps or fibroids.
NovaSure is a quick, minimally invasive procedure that removes the uterine lining. It’s recommended to women who experience heavy bleeding. Not only is your uterus left completely intact during the procedure, it also requires no incisions.
The Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure (LEEP) is a cervical cancer prevention treatment that removes abnormal cells from your cervix with a small electrical wire loop. In all, the LEEP procedure takes about 10 minutes.
A polypectomy removes uterine polyps, noncancerous growths. The Manhattan Women’s Health or Tribeca Women’s Health team inserts a small device through the vagina, so no incisions are needed during the procedure.
A labiaplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that reshapes the inner lips of your vagina. While it can improve the appearance of your vagina, many women opt for labiaplasty to relieve pain and discomfort.
During an endometrial biopsy, your physician takes a small sample of your endometrial tissue to look for signs of abnormal cells.
A dilation and curettage (D&C) procedure treats uterine conditions, such as heavy bleeding or to sample for abnormal cells.
