In-Office Surgeries Q&A

What are common in-office gynecologic surgeries?

For your convenience, Dr. Gadh/Dr. Danastor performs a wide range of gynecologic procedures on-site at Advanced OB/GYN Institute, including:

LEEP

A loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP) involves removing areas of abnormal cell growth from your cervix with a wire loop that has an electrical current running through it. Dr. Gadh/Dr. Danastor uses the loop to cut away a very thin layer of your cervix.

Hysteroscopy

Dr. Gadh/Dr. Danastor may use hysteroscopy as a diagnostic or surgical procedure. Hysteroscopy involves inserting a thin telescope-like device (hysteroscope) through your vagina and into your uterus. If Dr. Gadh sees an abnormality, she may treat it by inserting small surgical instruments through the hysteroscope.

Dilation and curettage

During dilation and curettage (D&C), Dr. Gadh/Dr. Danastor opens (dilates) your cervix and inserts a thin instrument into your uterus. Then, she uses this instrument to remove tissue from inside your uterus (curettage).  

Endometrial ablation

Endometrial ablation uses radiofrequency energy to treat and remove the lining of your uterus (endometrium). Dr. Gadh/Dr. Danastor uses NovaSure®, a safe, effective, FDA-approved endometrial ablation procedure that takes only five minutes.

Why would I need an in-office gynecologic surgery?

Dr. Gadh/Dr. Danastor may recommend an in-office surgery if you have pain and symptoms that don’t resolve with nonsurgical treatments, like medications and lifestyle changes. She uses in-office surgeries to treat many common conditions, including:

  • Abnormal uterine bleeding
  • Abnormal Pap test results
  • Miscarriage
  • Displaced intrauterine device (IUD)

She may also perform in-office surgery to remove adhesions, which are bands of scar tissue that may develop after an infection or another surgery.

What should I expect from an in-office gynecologic procedure?

First, Dr. Gadh/Dr. Danastor carefully reviews your medical history and performs a physical exam to make sure you’re a good candidate for surgery. Then, she discusses the best treatment options for your specific condition. She spends time answering your questions so you can make an informed decision. 

The details of your procedure vary depending on the type of surgery you need and the severity of your condition. Generally, in-office surgeries use local anesthesia to numb your cervix so you’re awake during the procedure. You may experience some mild cramping and spotting for a few days or weeks afterward.
