  • Labioplasty (enlarged or asymmetric labia)

Office Procedures

We offer our patients a variety of office procedures for their convenience and comfort. Advantages include rapid recovery, minimal discomfort, and decreased costs to our patients in many cases.

Some of the procedures we commonly perform in the office include:

ESSURE® Sterilization- quick, efficacious alternative to traditional sterilization without the need for invasive surgery. This technique is performed through a small camera that is inserted through the natural opening of the cervix. No incisions are required and patients experience almost no discomfort. The total procedure typically lasts less than 5 minutes. We have performed hundreds of these procedures with very good results.
Endometrial Ablation- technological breakthrough in the management of abnormal uterine bleeding, often times an alternative to hysterectomy. Although the technology is new, the concept of endometrial ablation has been around for many years. The concept involves destroying the endometrium, which is the tissue layer that normally responds to hormones and is responsible for uterine bleeding. By removing this layer, the patient retains normal hormonal function, but without the bleeding. Some of the most common modern endometrial ablation devices include the Novasure, Thermachoice, Heroption, and others.

LEEP- treatment of pre-cancer of the cervix. This treatment is reserved for patients who may be at risk of developing cervical cancer and involves removal of the tissue with the affected cells. The patient experiences minimal discomfort and can resume her normal activities immediately. As in all procedures, patients need to continue with follow up as scheduled to assure successful treatment. We DO NOT advocate the use of cryotherapy, which is an antiquated approach to managing pre-cancerous cells of the cervix.
Call today and make an appointment to see if you are a candidate for our office procedures. We will explain all your options in detail, so that you make informed decisions about your healthcare.

Advanced Maternal Age Pregnancy

By | January 7th, 2013|Categories: Gynaecology, High Risk Pregnancy, Miami Obstetrics and gynaecology, Obstetrician Miami, Pregnancy|Tags: , , |

 

Advanced Maternal Age Pregnancy (AMA): This refers to any woman that is either 35 years old or will be 35 years old at the expected time of delivery of her baby. The reality is that from a medical standpoint, a 35 year old woman is young. However, from a pregnancy standpoint they are older than the average patient. This age group is commonly considered “high risk pregnancy” for several reasons.

There are several conditions that are more common in women >35 such as pre-existing hypertension, diabetes, and heart disease. Women in this age group are also more likely to develop related pregnancy conditions such as preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, and peri-partum cardiomyopathy. These conditions will be discussed separately since they are not exclusive to advanced maternal age.

Although the mentioned conditions can be challenging during a pregnancy, the biggest concern for these patients is usually the risk of abnormal chromosomes (aneuploidy). In simplest terms, with an increase in age, there is an increase in the likelihood of having a wrong number of chromosomes in the egg that will eventually become the baby. This happens because women do not make new eggs during their life like they do with other cells of the body. In fact, all the eggs that a woman will have available during her lifetime are present by the time she is born. This prolonged arrested state of the eggs along with other time related factors, increase the chances of chromosomes separating unequally with advanced age.

How we manage an advanced maternal age patient depends on what the patient desires. At a minimum, these patients should be offered specialized screening tests during pregnancy to determine if the risk is high or low. Common tests available involve drawing blood from the patient and checking for certain hormone levels according to how far along they are in their pregnancy. More recently, advanced early ultrasounds can be performed to look at “nuchal translucency“, or the thin fat pad along the back of the neck of the fetus. This is particularly sensitive for Trisomy 21 (Downs Syndrome) babies that tend to have a thickened nuchal fold.

More recently, there has been a development of tests that detect tiny amounts of DNA secreted by the baby into the mother’s bloodstream. These tests claim a high detection rate for abnormalities, but are most sensitive when used together with the tests mentioned previously.

Detailed ultrasound (Level II) is another tool available to screen for chromosome abnormalities. A reasonable percentage of babies with Downs Syndrome, Edwards Syndrome, Patau Syndrome, and Neural Tube defects will have characteristic ultrasound findings.

Regardless of which test or combination of tests is used, patients need to understand that these are all screening tests, and as such, should not be used exclusively to make a diagnosis. Although these tests are very good at telling us when a patient does NOT have an abnormality, they are not as good at telling us when their is a problem. This is because these tests have a high false positive rate. It is important that patients understand this before undergoing testing, so that a positive test does not cause unnecessary anxiety.

So what happens with a positive test? The patient should be counseled and offered more invasive tests if they want to confirm a diagnosis. These tests are Chorionic Villus Sampling (CVS) and Amniocentesis. The choice of which is appropriate depends on how far along is the pregnancy. CVS is performed very early, but does have a higher rate of complications than amniocentesis which is performed a little later in pregnancy.

These tests involve the introduction of a needle into the uterus to obtain some of the fluid around the baby. This fluid is then analyzed for the correct number of chromosomes in order to either discard or confirm the findings of the preceding screening test.
