Common Gynecologic Diagnostic Procedures:
With adult woman, reproductive health can be an important part of your overall physical health. When gynecological issues arise, the concern for future health becomes a priority. In some cases, this points to a need for a procedure to identify and treat the problem. Sometimes the condition can be treated with just a change in lifestyle or medications. Sometimes, however, the only option is a minimally invasive procedure or traditional surgery may be required.
The following are some examples of Gynecologic Procedures:
– A procedure that allows for visualization of cervical and vaginal tissue by magnification.
– Acetic acid can be used to visualize areas considered abnormal which require biopsy
– Dilation of the cervix and curettage, by a metal tool with the goal of removing polyps and other procedures
3.) Endocervical curettage
– Using curette to remove cervical tissue.
– Used to diagnosis dysplasia and cancer
4.) Endometrial biopsy
– A process of removing areas of tissue.
– A small scope or camera that can be passed through the cervix.
– Visualization, biopsy, and tissue removal can be preformed
– An injection into the cervix to improve visualization due to a particular dye. (radiopaque)
– Typically used to assess fertility difficulties.
– The passing of a scope or camera into the abdomen or pelvic cavity through a small surgical incision in the skin.
– Improves diagnostic capabilities and the treatment of many conditions
– A procedure in which amniotic fluid is removed from the uterus for prenatal testing or treatment.
– A painless procedure to cryo freeze an area on the cervix.
– This procedure is done to help with excessive vaginal discharge or excessive bleeding after discharge
10.) Pelvic Floor Repair
– This procedure is performed to correct pelvic prolapse, when the muscles can no longer support organs in the pelvic area (uterus, vagina, bladder and/or rectum).
– This procedure intends to treat symptoms related to urinary leakage, discomfort, constipation, problem during intercourse, and others.
– The procedure helps reconstruct the pelvic floor without the need without a large abdominal incision. Sometimes surgical mesh is to reinforce the weakened vaginal walls.
– Removal of uterine fibroids, precancerous growths within the uterus – helping treat heavy bleeding and pelvic pressure.
