Minimally Invasive Procedures

Solutions for gynecologic problems

Fortunately, there have been many great advances in gynecologic surgery over the last several years. As a result, there are now minimally invasive surgical solutions for many gynecologic problems. These procedures require only tiny incisions that usually leave no scars. They also have less pain, shorter recoveries and fewer complications – just what gynecologist Dr. Gatlin wants for all his patients. Minimally invasive procedures include:

Laparoscopic procedures – The laparoscope uses a flexible tube with tiny medical instruments that allow both diagnosis and corrective treatment for a variety of gynecologic conditions. 

Hysteroscopy – A procedure that tells us whether your problem us due to scar tissue, the shape and size of your uterus, fibroids or polyps. Performed laparoscopically, it may also determine the cause of repeated miscarriages, abnormal bleeding, endometriosis or a blocked fallopian tube.

Endometrial ablation – Safely removes the lining of the uterus. This is an outpatient procedure with minimal recovery time. There are no incisions and most women are able to return to their normal activities within a day or two. Endometrial ablation is highly effective for improving heavy bleeding. Most women report that their periods are shorter and lighter after treatment – some say their periods stopped completely.

Essure® – The superior alternative to surgical tubal ligation. Essure® is a permanent in-office birth control solution that does not require anesthesia or any kind of incision. This outpatient procedure results in little, if any, downtime. Many women go right back to their regular routine the same day. Essure is also highly reliable – 99.8% effective in preventing pregnancy. At the right time in your life, permanent birth control with this procedure can offer you great freedom and peace of mind.  

These procedures can often be done in-office, without general anesthesia or a hospital stay. At Nevada Women's Care, we want you to recover fast so you can get back to your normal life with minimal disruption. Don’ t accept major surgery when there are safer, more effective, less invasive alternatives.
