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.
