Gynecological Procedures

Bone Mineral Densitometry - WebMD

Bone mineral densitometry (BMD) determines the amount of bone and over time can track loss (and the risk of developing osteoporosis) by measuring radiation absorption by the skeleton.

Cervical Biopsy - WebMD

A cervical biopsy is a diagnostic procedure used to evaluate abnormal cervical tissue found during a Pap smear.

Colonoscopy - WebMD

Colonoscopy is used to evaluate blood in stool, abdominal pain, persistent diarrhea, or abnormalities found during x-rays. It is also used to determine the type and extent of inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis, and Crohn'sdisease. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, it is used to screen for colon cancer.

Endometrial Ablation - WebMD for Women

Endometrial ablation is a procedure in which the uterine lining is destroyed either with a laser electrosurgery or cryoablation.

Endometrial Biopsy - WebMD for Women

An endometrial biopsy is a diagnostic test performed by taking a small sample of the lining of the uterus (endometrium). The sample is sent to pathology to diagnose abnormal cells.

Hysterectomy - WebMD for Women

Hysterectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the uterus, with or without the removal of the ovaries.

Hysterosalpingogram - WebMD

Hysterosalpingogramis an outpatient diagnostic procedure used to evaluate the endometrial cavity and fallopian tubes for blockage of the fallopian tubes or other uterine abnormalities.

Laparoscopic Assisted Vaginal Hysterectomy - WebMD

Laparoscopic Assisted Vaginal Hysterectomy (LAVH) is similar to a vaginal hysterectomy by removing the uterus with the use of a laparoscope.

Laparoscopy - WebMD

Laparoscopy is a surgery that uses a thin, lighted tube put through an incision near the belly button to look at the abdominal organs or the female pelvic organs. Laparoscopy is used to diagnose problems such as cysts, adhesions, fibroids, and infection. Tissue samples may be taken for biopsy through the laparoscope.

Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure (LEEP) - WebMD

The loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP) uses a thin, low-voltage electrified wire loop to cut out abnormal tissue. It can remove abnormal cervical tissue that is seen during a colposcopyor tissue within the cervical canal that is not seen during the colposcopy.

Myomectomy - WebMD

Myomectomyis the surgical removal of fibroids from the uterus.

Ovarian Cystectomy

Ovarian cystectomy can be preformed by two different procedures: Laparoscopy is a diagnostic procedure used to confirm diagnoses and remove benign ovarian cysts. Laparotomyis an open procedure used to remove ovaries or larger cysts.

Uterine Suspension

Uterine suspension is used to relieve pelvic pain or painful intercourse when the pain is thought to be the result of uterine retroversion (tilted uterus) or prolapse.
