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.

Surgical Sterilization in Littleton

Our laparoscopic tubal ligation procedure, also called female sterilization, or “getting your tubes tied,” is an operation that prevents pregnancy by closing the fallopian tubes. It’s a safe, minimally invasive surgery that is one of the most effective ways to prevent pregnancy. Because of this, our Littleton providers would not recommend that you have a laparoscopic tubal ligation procedure done if you may ever want to get pregnant in the future.

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.

Hysterectomy Procedure in Littleton

A hysterectomy procedure is a gynecological surgery that removes the uterus completely. Reasons why may include painful uterine fibroids, uterine prolapse, cancer of the uterus or surrounding reproductive parts, endometriosis, adenomyosis, and abnormal bleeding and pain in the vaginal and pelvic areas. A hysterectomy is usually only done after all other treatment options have been explored. Our gynecological surgery could be exactly what you’re looking for.

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.

Myomectomy in Littleton

A myomectomy procedure, or uterine fibroid removal, removes uterine fibroids, which are non-cancerous growths in the uterus. In contrast to a hysterectomy, which removes the entire uterus, a myomectomy removes only the fibroids of the uterus, leaving the organ. The point of uterine fibroid removal is to remove fibroids that cause pain or unpleasant symptoms while allowing you to keep your uterus in the case that you plan to bear children. Our Littleton providers can provide more information during an appointments if you think this procedure may be right for you.
