Gynecology Services

Gynecology-Services

Gynecology is a surgical specialty dealing with the female reproductive organs.  Modern gynecology deals with menstrual disorders, menopause, infectious disease and mal-development of the reproductive organs, disturbances of the sex hormones, benign and malignant tumor formation and the prescription of contraceptive devices.

At NEMO ASC, we commonly perform gynecological procedures that can be safely performed in an outpatient setting.

Common Procedures

Some of the common gynecological procedures performed at our facility include:

  • Laparoscopic Surgery (minimally invasive procedures)-allows surgery to be performed with less trauma to patients and minimal damage to body tissues.
  • Dilation and curettage (D&C) – refers to the dilation of the cervix and surgical removal of the contents of the uterus
  • Hysteroscopy Procedures – to treat fibroids/abnormal bleeding/removal of adhesions
  • Endometrial Ablations – removal or obstruction of the endometrium
  • Female Sterilization

Your surgeon and our staff will provide a warm and compassionate environment from admission all the way to discharge.  We are sensitive to the needs of your health and privacy needs.
