Gynecological Services

Services & Procedures Offered

Our board certified physicians offer a number of gynecological services and procedures, including:

  • Hysterectomy (removal of the uterus), with or without the removal of one or both fallopian tubes and ovaries. Hysterectomies can be performed via a number of different surgical approaches, including abdominal, vaginal and laparoscopic.
  • Surgeries of the vulva and perineum (external female anatomy).
  • Surgeries of the vagina and cervix. These can include such things as biopsies, and cystocele and rectocele repair (bulging of the bladder or rectum into the vagina).
  • Surgeries of the uterus. These can include procedures such as biopsies, dilatation & curettage (D&C), hysteroscopy (looking inside the uterine cavity with a scope inserted through the cervix), removal of fibroids, and endometrial ablation (treatment of heavy menstrual bleeding).
  • Surgeries of the fallopian tubes and/or ovaries: These may include treatment or removal of cysts, removal of the tubes/ovaries, ectopic pregnancy surgery, and tubal ligation/sterilization.
  • Cesarean sections

High Risk Pregnancy Care

When a pregnancy is determined to be high risk, our patients are referred to specialists known as Maternal Fetal Medicine physicians (MFM). MFM doctors are obstetricians that have taken additional training through an MFM fellowship.

Our patients can schedule appointments with MFM of Central PA here in our office.

Procedure Controls Excessive Menstrual Bleeding

OB/GYN of Evangelical now offers in-office treatment of excessive menstrual bleeding utilizing the NovaSure® procedure. The procedure is a quick, safe, simple, one-time endometrial ablation treatment. This minimally invasive procedure controls heavy bleeding by using energy to remove the lining of the uterus.

Without the side effects of hormones or the risks of hysterectomy, NovaSure has a quick recovery time so you can get back to your life sooner. Most women experience no pain after the procedure, and can return to work and regular activities the next day.

For more information please view NovaSure®'s website, www.novasure.com or call our office to speak with someone.
