Minimally Invasive Surgery / Laparoscopy
Minimally Invasive Surgery/Laparoscopy probably is the most common surgical procedure performed as part of the infertility evaluation. It is generally regarded as the definite test for the evaluation of tubal factors. It is usually performed under general anesthesia and involves the thorough exploration of the pelvis organs (uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes and peritoneal surfaces) and documentation of tubal patency.
Hysteroscopy is frequently performed at the hospital or out-patient surgery center under conscious sedation or general anesthesia. In this setting operative procedures such as the removal of polyps, fibroids (submucosal) and scar tissue (adhesions) can be performed. In addition, operative hysteroscopy is performed for the treatment of a congenital malformation of the uterus called a septum. The Laparoscopy and Hysteroscopy services aid in the over-all diagnosis and treatment of women.

The Ob-Gyn Ultrasound Section is fulfilling its commitment in providing quality healthcare by giving the best imaging technique needed by the woman in all stages.

The Digital Mammography uses computers and specially designed digital detectors to produce images that are displayed on a high resolution computer monitor and stored like other computer files. The mammograpgy remains the gold standard for screening early stage of breast cancer. It is the most common imaging tool used in the detection of breast cancer for women over forty years.
The Breast Ultrasound is an imaging technique used to screen for tumors and other breast abnormalities. The ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to produce live images of the inside of the breast. Unlike x-ray and CT scans, ultrasounds use no radiation and are considered safe for pregnant woman and nursing mothers
