Contraception is the voluntary prevention of pregnancy. Men and women can choose from a variety of reliable methods to prevent conception. Choosing the right birth control can depend on several factors, including effectiveness, cost, protection against disease, and personal preference. Contraception is intended to prevent undesired pregnancy and not to protect against STDs. Condoms may help prevent disease transmission.
This is a growth of cancer cells in your breast. It is the most common form of cancer in women after skin cancer. It affects one woman in eight during their lives. Men can also have breast cancer, but it’s rare.
This outpatient procedure is used to examine and in some cases treat abnormalities in the lining of the uterus. The procedure is performed with a lighted viewing instrument called a hysteroscope.
During this procedure, which takes about 30 minutes to complete, the physician uses a radiofrequency device to destroy the endometrial lining of the uterus. This procedure is an effective method for the treatment of abnormal vaginal bleeding, especially heavy menstrual bleeding.
This minimally-invasive surgical procedure is performed to remove a cyst that has developed on an ovary. It is performed with the aid of a lighted viewing telescope, called a laparoscope, and is performed in an outpatient setting.
This outpatient procedure is used to remove abnormal areas of tissue from the cervix. The procedure typically takes about 20 to 30 minutes to complete.
This procedure, commonly called “having one’s tubes tied,” is performed to block the fallopian tubes to prevent pregnancy. It is performed with the aid of a lighted viewing telescope, called a laparoscope, and usually takes about 30 minutes to complete.
In this outpatient procedure, a small tool called a curette is used to remove tissue from inside the uterus. Dilation and curettage is often used to obtain a biopsy in cases of heavy menstruation or postmenopausal bleeding or to clear tissue that may be left after a miscarriage or delivery. The procedure usually takes about 15 to 30 minutes.
This outpatient procedure is used to remove one or more fibroids – growths that commonly develop along the walls of the uterus. The procedure is performed with the aid of a specialized device called a hysteroscope, which is inserted through the cervix and into the uterus. The hysteroscope contains a light, camera and a cutting instrument called a morcellator.
This minimally-invasive procedure, performed with the da Vinci Surgical System, is used to restore a collapsed vagina. In this procedure, a surgical mesh support is anchored to the sacrum and attached to the outside of the vagina, restoring the vagina to its normal position.
This minimally-invasive procedure, performed with the da Vinci Surgical System, is used to remove a diseased uterus. In some cases, the surgeon may also have to remove the cervix, ovaries, fallopian tubes or surrounding lymph nodes.
The da Vinci Surgical System is an advanced robotic platform that allows surgeons to perform complex procedures with great precision. da Vinci procedures are performed with minimally-invasive techniques that minimize scarring and pain during recovery. Compared to traditional surgery, a da Vinci procedure can offer a higher success rate and a shorter recovery time.
The simple, in-office screening procedure is used to identify the presence of abnormal cells on the cervix (the opening of the uterus). The Pap test can be used to detect precancerous cells and cervical cancer. It takes only a few minutes to perform.
This procedure is used to freeze and destroy abnormal cells in the cervix. Cryosurgery is a common treatment for precancerous cells, a condition known as cervical intraepithelial neoplasia.
This diagnostic procedure is used to collect a small tissue sample from the endometrium, the layer of tissue that lines the uterus, so that the cells can be examined under a microscope. Endometrial biopsy is performed on an outpatient basis, and takes about 5 to 15 minutes to complete.
During this outpatient procedure, typically performed after an abnormal Pap smear, the physician collects a tissue sample from the cervix so that the cells can be examined under a microscope. In some cases, a biopsy may be performed to remove precancerous lesions or larger areas of abnormal tissue.
This procedure, which takes about ten to fifteen minutes to perform, is a visual examination of the cervix with a microscopic viewing device called a colposcope. It may be performed in conjunction with a biopsy or other procedure.
Cervical cancer happens here, in the cervix. It’s the lower part of a woman’s womb (or uterus). If this cancer is found early, it can be cured. If left untreated, it can spread to other parts of your body.
These growths, also called “myomas,” form in the wall of your uterus. They are made from muscle cells and other tissues. They can be small or large, and you can have one or many. Fibroids are tumors, but they are benign. That means they aren’t cancerous.
These are sacs filled with fluid. They can form on or in the ovaries (the reproductive organs that produce a woman’s egg cells). Ovarian cysts are common. Most women have them at some time during their lives. In most cases they are not cancerous and aren’t harmful.
This condition is an inability to hold back urine when pressure or physical stress is placed on the bladder. Stress incontinence can cause embarrassing incidents of wet clothing.
This is abnormal, unpredictable bleeding from your vagina. It isn’t caused by things like infection, disease or pregnancy. It can happen between your menstrual periods, and the bleeding may be light or heavy.
This is a change in the cells of your cervix. That’s the lower part of your uterus. If you have cervical dysplasia, cells of the cervix begin to show signs that are not normal. They aren’t cancer cells, but they may become cancerous over time.
