Diagnostic Laparoscopy - a procedure where the physician will make a small incisions in the abdomen, insert a small scope and examine the abdomen and the reproductive organs to determine the cause of conditions such as severe pelvic pain, infertility, ectopic (tubal) pregnancy and ovarian cysts.  

Endometrial Ablation - a procedure that can be an alternative procedure to a hysterectomy for women who suffer from heavy or prolonged periods. The procedure involves removing the lining of the uterus (endometrium), which is the source for bleeding. This procedure uses hysteroscopy to view the uterine and a laser or balloon to remove the endometrium. 
Hysterectomy - is the removal of the uterus through an abdominal incision, through the vagina or using a laparoscope inserted into the abdomen to view the internal organs while removing the uterus through the vagina. (Laparoscopically Assisted Vaginal Hysterectomy - LAVH). A total hysterectomy may also include removal of the ovaries and/or fallopian tubes.
Hysteroscopy - a procedure that uses a hysteroscope to look inside the uterus. This procedure can help diagnose the cause of abnormal bleeding, infertility, fibroid tumors, polyps, and displaced IUDS.
Loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP) is an outpatient procedure used to remove pre-cancer cells in the cervix. The instrument is a fine metal loop that has electric current passing through it, used to burn the suspect tissue. The electric current helps reduce the bleeding, thus resulting in faster healing. 
Myomectomy - is the surgical removal of fibroids from the uterine muscle without hysterectomy.
Operative Hysteroscopy - is the use of a hysteroscope during hysteroscopy to remove uterine adhesions or fibroids.
