What minimally invasive surgeries are performed in-office?

To provide you with the best care possible, the team at Lake OB-GYN Associates of Mid-Florida, LLC performs many minimally invasive surgeries at the office. The in-office procedures include:

Hysteroscopy

The hysteroscopy is a diagnostic procedure that allows your doctor at Lake OB-GYN Associates of Mid-Florida, LLC to evaluate your uterus using a hysteroscope, a lighted telescope-like device. Your doctor would recommend a hysteroscopy to diagnose the underlying cause of your abnormal bleeding or to remove noncancerous growths (polyps or fibroids).

Colposcopy

A colposcopy is a diagnostic procedure that allows your doctor at Lake OB-GYN Associates of Mid-Florida, LLC to evaluate your cervical tissue using a magnifying device called a colposcope. Your doctor would recommend this procedure following an abnormal Pap smear.

Excisional biopsies

To further evaluate your vulvar, vaginal, or cervical tissue, your doctor can perform an excisional biopsy, removing a sample of your tissue, and can be done during your colposcopy.

Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy is a procedure that uses liquid nitrogen to freeze and destroy abnormal cervical tissue.

The team at Lake OB-GYN Associates of Mid-Florida, LLC also performs ultrasounds at the office, which can be used to diagnose a gynecologic condition like fibroids or polyps.

What are hospital-based minimally invasive surgeries?

Depending on your gynecologic needs, the team might need to perform your minimally invasive surgery at the hospital. Hospital-based procedures include:

Laparoscopy

During a laparoscopy, your doctor at Lake OB-GYN Associates of Mid-Florida, LLC inserts a surgical camera called a laparoscope through a small incision into your abdominal area. Then, your doctor makes additional small incisions for the surgical instruments to perform the necessary procedure.

Vaginal

Some procedures like hysterectomy can be performed by making small incisions through your vagina.
