Diagnostic Laparoscopy Procedure in Littleton
A diagnostic laparoscopy procedure is a surgical procedure done laparoscopically to examine organs in the abdominal area and diagnose visible conditions. Depending on the problem areas and the conditions being examined, diagnostic laparoscopy can take anywhere from 30-60 minutes. Because a laparoscope is so thin, it can be inserted into a small incision to reach the internal organs in a minimally invasive way.
Ovarian Cyst Removal in Littleton
Ovarian cysts are solid or fluid filled pockets on or in the ovary. They may need to be removed if they are large, painful, or cancerous. Ovarian cyst removal is a gynecological procedure that can be done laparoscopically, in keeping with the minimally invasive approach to surgery that we take here at Littleton Gynecology and Wellness. During the operation, tissues from the cyst may be removed and tested for cancer. If the testing is positive, it could mean that the ovaries need to be removed.
Dilatation and Curettage Procedure in Littleton
Dilation and curettage are a gynecological procedure that involves dilating the cervix and curetting the uterus. The dilation and curettage procedure is done to treat heavy bleeding or diagnose other abnormal endometrial conditions, or to clear the uterine lining after a miscarriage or abortion. Sometimes, this procedure will be done to remove a molar pregnancy, clear excessive placenta that remains after delivery, or remove polyps on the cervix or uterus.
