In-Office Procedures & Surgery

MAHEC Ob/Gyn Specialists offers several minor gynecological procedures in the office.

We have a comfortable procedure suite and recovery area where many minor procedures can be safely accomplished. In-office procedures save time and cost for patients when compared to the hospital setting. Together, you and your provider make the decision for an in-office procedure through careful screening. Patients are awake for the in-office procedures, as general anesthesia is not used. You are made more comfortable with local anesthetics, oral, and intravenous medications.


Procedures Include: 

  • Essure Tubal Ligation
  • Endometrial Ablation
  • Hysteroscopy
  • Dilation & Curettage
  • Manual Vacuum Aspiration for early miscarriage
  • Colposcopy
  • Loop Electrical Excision Procedure (LEEP)


MAHEC OB/GYN Specialists also provides a procedure clinic to manage and treat cervical dysplasia on Friday afternoons. The procedure clinic receives referrals from 16 counties in Western North Carolina for dysplasia.
