Anterior repair is used to tighten the front (anterior) wall of the vagina. It is used when the bladder drops out of its normal position and bulges into the front of the vagina, causing the front wall of the vagina to sag. This condition is known as anterior wall prolapse, cystocele or dropped bladder.
Surgical removal of hemorrhoids (enlarged and dilated veins in and around the anus). Hemorrhoidectomy is usually reserved for severe hemorrhoids if more conservative treatment measures fail to alleviate the symptoms (burning, itching, swelling, protrusion, bleeding, and pain).
Laparoscopy is a surgical diagnostic procedure used to examine the organs inside the abdomen. It’s a low-risk, minimally invasive procedure that requires only small incisions.
LEEP is an abbreviation for loop electrosurgical excision procedure. It is a way to test and treat abnormal cell growth on the surface tissue of the cervix. LEEP may be recommended after abnormal changes in the cervix are confirmed by Pap tests and colposcopy biopsies.
Posterior repair is used to tighten the back (posterior) wall of the vagina. It is used when the rectum drops out of its normal position and bulges into the back of the vagina, causing the back wall of the vagina to sag, which may result in bowel dysfunction.
Scar revision is surgery to improve or reduce the appearance of scars. It also restores function, and corrects skin changes (disfigurement) caused by an injury, wound, poor healing, or previous surgery.
Skin Tag Removal
Skin tags are benign tumors of the skin. They commonly occur in creases or folds of the skin. They are not dangerous, but they can be removed for aesthetic and cosmetic reasons. Methods of skin tag removal include over the counter (OTC) therapies, excision, and cryotherapy.
Abnormal Pap Smear
If your Pap test is abnormal, this means that your sample contained abnormally shaped cervical cells. Most of the abnormal cells found during a Pap test are the result of a cervical or vaginal infection and are not cancerous. Abnormal Pap tests are very common.
Pelvic pain: Pain perceived in the area of the pelvis, the lower part of the abdomen located between the hip bones. The term pelvic pain is most commonly used to refer to pain arising from reproductive organs (uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, vagina) in women.
Cervical dysplasia is a precancerous condition of the cervix, caused by the humanpapillomavirus(HPV). Cervical dysplasia usually appears without symptoms, therefore it is important to see your OB-GYN for an annual exam, as well as regular pap smears after the age of 21, to screen for any abnormal cells.
