- In early October, the FDA approved the intrauterine device Mirena to treat heavy menstrual bleeding in women who use intrauterine contraception as their main form of pregnancy prevention. Ask your doctor if the Mirena device is right for you as birth control or as a method to control heavy bleeding. It’s an easy and quick out-patient office procedure.
- Looking for other birth control options besides the pill or an IUD? Ask your doctor about IMPLANON/NEXPLANON, a small, thin hormonal contraceptive that is effective for up to three years. It is implanted in your arm in a quick in-office procedure.
- Getting a hysterectomy has progressed dramatically through the years. Our doctors are specialists in advanced hysterectomy procedures, including LASH (Laparoscopic Supracervical Hysterectomy), which is a state-of-the-art procedure that is minimally invasive, cost-effective and has the benefit of a quick recovery time. Ask your doctor if LASH is right for you. Over 98% of our patients go home the same day.
