In-Office And Outpatient Treatments
Tennessee Women’s Care, PC is fully committed to the use of technically advanced treatment options for women including laparoscopy, hysteroscopy and robotics. Many treatment options are performed in-office, when available and outpatient.
The following general descriptions are some of the most common procedures and/or surgical services, but not inclusive to all those we render.
- COLOPSOCOPY: a non-surgical device which magnifies the cervical area. This is a sampling of tissue to determine if abnormal cells on the cervix are pre-cancerous. (Performed in-office)
- ENDOMETRIAL ABLATION: the destruction of the thin lining of the uterus, generally for the treatment of frequent or heavy periods. (In-office and/or outpatient)
- ENDOMETRIAL BIOPSY: the sampling of the endometrial lining to evaluate abnormal bleeding or to evaluate the uterine lining. (Performed in-office)
- FEMALE STERILIZATION: hysteroscopic procedure using the ADIANA or ESSURE method; or traditional method (BTL). Each method is permanent and irreversible. ADIANA or ESSURE procedure involves deploying a tiny insert into the tubes to promote scarring and occlusion of the tubes.
- HYSTERECTOMY: the removal of the uterus and possibly ovaries and fallopian tubes. Procedure can be performed abdominally, laparoscopic or robotic. (Performed inpatient or outpatient)
- LEEP: Non-invasive removal of abnormal areas found on the cervix, generally called cervical dysplasia. (May be performed in-office or outpatient)
- MYOMECTOMY: the surgical removal of uterine fibroids. Can be performed laparoscopic or robotic. (Performed outpatient)
- PELVIC SUPPORT PROCEDURES: procedures that restore prolapsed pelvic organs. There are several procedures including bladder repair (anterior colporrhaphy), Uterine Prolapse Suspension. Procedures for a prolapsed vagina are sometimes referred to as a Vaginal Vault Suspension. These may or may not be performed in conjunction with a cystocele or rectocele repair. In some cases, a vaginal hysterectomy may be necessary to achieve the desired outcome for the restoring of the pelvic muscles. (Performed outpatient or inpatient)
- URODYNAMICS TESTING: assesses urinary incontinence symptoms. In office evaluation.
- URINARY INCONTINENCE: Renessa® a non-surgical approach that can be completed in an office setting. Slings involve thin mesh placed through small vaginal incisions. (Performed outpatient)
