Surgical Procedures Q & A
What are in-office surgical procedures?
Yakov Levy MD PC is a high-tech OB/GYN practice that has the most advanced medical tools available. Some of the in-office surgical procedures performed include:
A colposcopy allows the OB/GYN team to closely examine your cervical tissue. During the colposcopy, your OB/GYN uses a special magnifying instrument called a colposcope to look for areas of abnormal tissue.
You may need a colposcopy if you have an abnormal Pap test.
During a cone biopsy, your OB/GYN removes a thin or thick cone-shaped sample of cervical tissue, which a pathology lab receives for further evaluation.
To treat women suffering from heavy menstrual bleeding, the team at Yakov Levy MD PC offers endometrial ablation with NovaSure®. During the in-office procedure, your OB/GYN places the NovaSure device into your uterus, which uses radiofrequency energy to ablate your endometrial tissue.
To treat vaginal dryness, sexual discomfort, and vaginal laxity, the OB/GYN practice offers vaginal revitalization treatments with the FemiLift laser.
To strengthen vaginal muscles and treat urinary incontinence, the team relies on Emsella®, which uses electromagnetic stimulation to contract and strengthen the muscles.
What surgical procedures occur at a surgical center?
Yakov Levy MD PC performs more serious gynecological surgical procedures at the hospital or surgical center, such as:
- Surgical removal of fibroids or ovarian cysts
- Treatment of an ectopic pregnancy
- Tubal ligation
- Pelvic reconstructive surgery
- Repair or bladder and rectal prolapse
When possible, the experienced surgical team uses minimally invasive surgical techniques to perform your surgical procedure, which results in smaller incisions, less pain, and a faster recovery.
The OB/GYN team at Yakov Levy MD PC may also recommend a diagnostic laparoscopy, which is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that allows your OB/GYN to evaluate your reproductive organs using a surgical cameral called a laparoscope.
This is a common procedure to diagnose endometriosis, for example. During your diagnostic surgical procedure, your OB/GYN may also perform any necessary surgery to address the findings.
What happens after my surgical procedure?
What happens after your surgical procedure depends on the type of procedure. The Yakov Levy MD PC team explains the specifics of your surgery at your consultation, which includes how to prepare and what to expect afterward.
You may be able to resume most of your usual activities soon after an in-office procedure. However, a more invasive surgery may require some downtime.
