Women are faced with a variety of benign gynecologic conditions that may require surgery throughout their lifespan. Dr. Cindy Hall is well-trained to offer women surgical services for a variety of conditions.
A Center for Women's Care, P.C. treats a range of benign gynecological conditions, including:
Many of these conditions can be treated through a minimally invasive approach. Minimally invasive surgical options generally include hysteroscopic, laparoscopic, and robotic surgery. The advantages of minimally invasive procedures include:
Patients having laparoscopic surgery will have a small incision inside or near the belly button, and may have other small (less than 1cm) incisions beneath the belly button. These small incisions allow the passage of a camera and special instruments into the abdomen, allowing the doctor to carry out the surgery.
Benefits of laparoscopic surgery include:
Laparoscopy can be used to perform:
Hysteroscopic surgery involves placing a small camera through the cervix to look at the inside of the uterus. Specialized instruments can be passed through the camera which allows the surgeon to operate inside the uterus without an incision.
To treat heavy periods or menorrhagia, more women are choosing NovaSure Endometrial Ablation.The NovaSure procedure is a quick, safe, simple, one-time endometrial ablation treatment. This minimally invasive procedure controls heavy bleeding by using energy to remove the lining of the uterus. The average treatment time is about 90 seconds, and only needs to be performed once to lighten or stop periods. No pretreatment drugs are required and NovaSure can be performed in the hospital or office. Without the side effects of hormones or the risks of hysterectomy, NovaSure has a quick recovery time. Most women experience no pain after the procedure, and can return to work and regular activities the next day. NovaSure reduces bleeding and much more; with more than 500,000 patients treated to date, NovaSure is proven safe and successful. A clinical trial has shown that 9 out of 10 women return to normal or lower than normal bleeding levels following treatments with NovaSure. For some women, their periods even stopped completely. Many women also experienced a reduction in PMS and painful periods, as well as other benefits such as less anxiety, greater self-confidence, and a boost in energy.
Urinary incontinence affects approximately 13 million adults in the United States and can greatly interfere with normal daily activities. If you leak urine when you laugh, cough, or sneeze, then you may have stress incontinence. A simple office test can determine if you are a candidate for a new, minimally invasive procedure to treat urinary incontinence.
