Procedures / Treatments

  • Colposcopy A magnified inspection and diagnostic procedure that examines the cervix and the tissues of the vagina and vulva. The diagnostic procedure evaluates potentially cancerous areas, usually after a pap smear has identified abnormal cells on the cervix.
  • Contraception Contraception or birth control is a method or device used to prevent pregnancy. These methods include IUD, Nexplanon, birth control pills, vaginal rings or injections.
  • Endometrial Ablation An endometrial ablation is an outpatient procedure performed by a specially trained surgeon used to treat abnormal uterine bleeding by destroying (ablating) the lining of the uterus.
  • Endometriosis A procedure used to diagnose and remove mild to moderate endometriosis. A thin scope with a camera on the end is passed through a small abdominal incision. A additional incisions are made on the lower abdomen to provide an additional opening for surgical instruments. Surgeons can view the outside of the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and nearby organs. The endometriosis can then be removed using the instruments.
  • Fibroid Removal (Myomectomy) A minimally invasive outpatient surgery which is performed by a thin scope being inserted through the navel (via five small incisions) to view the pelvic and abdominal organs to locate and remove fibroid tumors. Once the procedure is complete, the incision will be closed with stitches. Benefits of a minimally invasive myomectomy include a same day procedure and a quicker recovery with smaller scars.
  • Laparoscopic Hysterectomy A Laproscopic Hysterectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure to remove the uterus. The surgery is performed in Ogden through small abdominal incisions using a thin scope with a camera on the end. Benefits of a minimally invasive laproscopic hysterectomy include less pain, a shorter hospital stay, quicker recovery time, and less scarring. Variations of the procedure may include the removal of the cervix, fallopian tubes and ovaries.
  • Laparoscopic Surgery Laparoscopic surgery, also known as minimally invasive surgery, is a specialized technique for performing surgery using a laparoscope (camera and instruments) through a few small incisions.
  • Laparoscopic Tubal Reversal A minimally invasive surgical procedure performed through small abdominal incisions to restore fertility after a woman has had a tubal ligation. A camera mounted on a long lens is inserted through the base of the navel to project images on a video monitor. The blocked segments of the fallopian tubes are reconnected to the remainder of the fallopian tubes.
  • LEEP Also known as the loop electrosurgical excision procedure, uses a heated wire loop by a low-voltage electrical current to remove abnormal cervical tissue to prevent cervical cancer.
  • Menopause Management Each woman requires individual attention before, during, and after menopause. Ogden Clinic offers natural and complementary therapy and hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for menopause management.
  • Nexplanon® Also known as Implanon NXT is medication used to prevent pregnancy (long acting & reversible) by inserting a thin, small plastic rod filled with medication under the skin.
  • NovaSure® Novasure is an endometrial ablation procedure that provides a solution to heavy periods (may reduce or stop bleeding altogether).
  • Pelvic Organ Prolapse (Sacrocolpopexy) A minimally invasive surgical technique used to treat vaginal or uterine prolapse. Prolapse is defined as the dropping of a pelvic organ from a normal location in the lower belly, due to weakened or stretched tissue. The procedure reduces the prolapse condition and restores the anatomy and function of the vagina. During the procedure, the vagina or cervix is lifted back to the natural position by attaching a synthetic mesh from the top and back of the vagina to the sacral promontory. The mesh provides the vagina support to maintain the correct position after surgery. Advantages of the minimally invasive procedure offer less scarring and a quicker recovery.
  • Prolapse Surgery Surgical procedures used to restore or support vaginal wall prolapse or relaxation. A prolapsed bladder is a cystocele. A prolapsed rectum is a rectocele.
  • Prostate Ultrasound and Biopsy A procedure to evaluate abnormal results of a digital rectal exam or an elevated prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test. A prostate ultrasound involves a probe about the size of a finger that is inserted a short distance into the rectum. The probe produces harmless high-frequency sound waves that are recorded and transformed into images of the prostate gland to visualize the prostate. The ultrasound imaging is used to guide a small biopsy needle into the prostate. The needle removes small amounts of tissue to be analyzed. Results of the procedure will assist physicians in diagnosing prostate disorders and diseases.
  • Robotic Gynecologic Surgery da Vinci Surgical System is a robotic surgical platform that translates a specially trained surgeon's hand movements into precise micro movements and offers a progressive, minimally invasive option for major surgery.
  • Robotic Hysterectomy da Vinci Surgical System is a robotic surgical platform that translates a specially trained surgeon's hand movements into precise micro movements and offers a progressive, minimally invasive option for major surgery.
  • Robotic Surgery The da Vinci Surgical System is a robotic surgical platform that translates a specially trained surgeon's hand movements into precise micro movements. Da Vinci robotic surgery offers a progressive, minimally invasive option for major surgery.
  • Tubal Ligation Sterilization is a minimally invasive surgery for women who no longer wish to have children, by removal of the fallopian tubes. Tubal ligation (removal) is performed laparoscopically to promote a quicker, smoother recovery.
  • Urinary Incontinence Sling A surgical procedure that treats severe urinary incontinence and involves the placement of material around the urethra.
  • VBAC VBAC refers to Vaginal Birth After a Caesarean—having a baby vaginally after having at least one baby by caesarean section.
