Comprehensive Gynecologic Care

Gynecology focuses on maintaining a healthy female reproductive system by treating conditions that can adversely affect your health and quality of life. Some of the more common conditions include:

Dilation & Curettage (D&C)

This is a diagnostic and therapeutic procedure to remove uterine tissue from the inner lining of the uterus to diagnose or treat various conditions, including uterine cancer, endometrial hyperplasia and heavy, abnormal bleeding. D&C is a brief procedure in which we dilate the cervix and use a special instrument to scrape the uterine lining.

You may need a D&C to remove uterine tissue during or after a miscarriage or abortion or to remove leftover bits of placenta after childbirth to prevent infection or heavy bleeding. We use D&C to diagnose or treat abnormal uterine bleeding or growths such as uterine fibroids and polyps, hormonal imbalances or uterine cancer.

Hysteroscopy allows Dr. Todd to look inside your uterus in order to diagnose and treat causes of abnormal bleeding. Dr. Todd performs hysteroscopy in about 30 minutes using a hysteroscope, which is a thin, lighted tube inserted into the vagina to closely examine the cervix and internal uterus. During the procedure, she can also remove uterine fibroids or polyps.

Uterine Fibroids

Fibroids are not cancer. You do not need to seek treatment unless they are causing problems. Fibroids are common among women in their 30s and 40s and typically do not cause problems. Many women never even know they have them. For others, symptoms can vary from mild to severe.

Myomectomy is a therapeutic procedure to remove uterine fibroids or noncancerous growths. Uterine fibroids can cause pain, bleeding or other problems.

Myomectomy leaves the uterus intact, which makes it the preferred fibroid treatment for women who want to become pregnant. Your chances of pregnancy may be improved but not guaranteed after myomectomy. Myomectomy can be performed hysteroscopically or laparoscopically via robotic and exploratory laparotomy. Dr. Todd will help you decide which method is most suited to your needs. She works closely with other skilled and licensed professionals to resolve the issue. Dr. Todd and her team use the method that works most effectively considering the size, location and number of fibroids.

Hysteroscopy helps her remove uterine fibroids that have not grown deep into the uterine wall. Laparoscopy is typically best for removing one or two fibroids, up to about two inches across, which may be growing just outside of the uterus. Laparotomy is for fibroids that are large, numerous or have grown deep into the uterine wall. To repair urinary or bowel problems without causing organ damage, laparotomy is usually necessary.

Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a condition in which the inner uterine lining (endometrium) grows outside the uterus into the fallopian tubes, ovaries, bladder or other pelvic structures, causing pain, irregular menstruation, vaginitis and even infertility. Symptoms can include abdominal pain, pelvic pain and heavy periods. Treatment options include pain relievers, hormones and surgical procedures. Some women experience no symptoms. Others have mild to severe symptoms.
