Alpha OBGYN prides itself on the current medical trends by offering our patients numerous office-based procedures formerly having to be performed in a hospital setting.
We have found the convenience and cost-effectiveness of having an office-based procedure of great benefit to many patients.
Procedures Performed At Our Office
Like regular ultrasounds, 3D and 4D ultrasounds use sound waves to create an image of your baby in your womb. What's different is that 3D ultrasounds create a three-dimensional image of your baby, while 4D ultrasounds create a live video effect, like a movie, you can watch your baby smile or yawn. Studies suggest that 3D and 4D ultrasounds are safe. Plus, the images can help doctors spot a problem with your baby and make it easier for them to explain it to you.
A fiberoptic study used to evaluate bleeding abnormalities of the uterus. Many women are now able to avoid a hospital-based operative D & C.
A treatment offered to some patients for heavy periods.
Birth Control Procedures
Essure - Hysteroscopic Sterilization-a method of permanent sterilization that avoids surgical incisions.
Mirena-an intrauterine contraceptive that delivers small amounts of hormone directly to the uterus. Made of soft, flexible plastic, it is put in place by your healthcare provider during an office.
ParaGard Intrauterine Contraceptive (IUC) is a different kind of birth control. But it's one of the most effective kinds available. It's even more effective than the Pill. But, unlike the Pill (and patch, ring, and shots), it's hormone-free. So it's great for women who prefer not to use hormones or can't for health reasons.
