Dilatation And Curettage Instruments
Dilatation and Curettage, known as a D and C, is a common procedure where the cervix is dilated and the doctor will clear the uterus of pregnancy tissue. It can be performed in the office or in an outpatient procedure center. It is done under sedation ...Read more
Depends why: Often a d & c may be done under sedation with Propofol and other meds such as versed or fentanyl. The gyn doctor may use local anesthesia around the cervix. If it's an emergency situation where the patient doesn't have an empty stomach, if the patient is extremely obese, or if there is heavy bleeding, general anesthesia may be safest. The ob/gyn and anes doctors will decide the best plan. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Minimal: There is very little pain with a leep procedure. I do them in my office using a paracervical block which requires an injection on each side of the cervix. Most of my patients do not feel that injection. If I do the leep in the operating room, those patients have an I.V. Which does require a neele stick for its placement - still only a needle stick - minimal pain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can the cervix grow back/go back to full strength after a laser cone removal of CIN grade 2 moderate abnormal cell changes procedure? Thx
Conization: The risk of preterm delivery is increased after a laser conization. You may interpret the fact that not a l l women after a laser conization experience preterm deliveries as an indication that in these cases the cervix grew back to full strength. There is no test available that would tell in advance if the cervix regained full strength. ...Read more
Ask your OB/GYN dr.: You want to make sure that your area is not sensitive or inflammed from having the d and c done. So check with your ob/gyn. If you are still recovering, you may be more sensitive to the heat of the laser depending on what part of the bikini area you are lasering. So for best comfort, make sure you are at least 3-4 weeks out before doing it, in case you have discharge coming out too. ...Read more
Which is better for frozen shoulder? mua w/scope scar tissue removal and release or just scope w/scar tissue removal and release
MUA: MUA, or manipulation under anaesthesia is the most patient friendly way to perform any procedure compared to the same procedure without anaesthesia. Your orthopedist may tell you he/she can assess things better without anaesthesia, but some people have a low pain threshold, and would not be very compliant in those circumstances, making the procedure difficult to impossible to do the right way ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

No procedures done and cervix closed up. Reasons?Cervix then reclosed up after dilation/hysteroscopy/endo biopsy in 1 month? Why?Cancer? How 2 prevent
Not cancer: The cervix closing has more to do with your collagen and how you form scars then it does with cancer. I'm assuming your dilation and biopsy were normal. Not much you can do to prevent. It just happens to some women. Be sure to follow up with your gynecologist and follow all their recommendations. If family h/o uterine, ovarian or breast cancer then ^ surveillance. ...Read more
