Routine Health Screenings

Women in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania are permitted to refer themselves to their gynecologist for at least one exam per year. We perform routine health screenings and physical exams for our patients as well as treat complex gynecological problems.

We recommend that each patient has a complete gynecological exam each year. Pap smear screening will be performed at the appropriate recommended intervals. After age 40, a mammogram is recommended on a regular basis. From age 30 and up, we recommend that you have an HPV test along with your Pap. You may choose which of our providers you would like to see for your periodic check-ups when you call to schedule your appointment.

In-Office Procedures

There are several gynecologic procedures that we perform in our office. Certain procedures may be required to assist your physician in either diagnosing a medical problem or monitoring a medical condition or treatment. Most of these procedures require a special appointment. These procedures are performed in our office suite:

  • Colposcopy
  • Endometrial Biopsy
  • LEEP (Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure)
  • Sonohystography (Saline Infusion Ultrasound)
  • Ultrasound
  • IUD Insertion and Removal
  • Nexplanon Insertion and Removal

The procedures above are performed in both offices, except sonohystography (saline infusion ultrasound) and ultrasound, which take place in the Lebanon office only.

Gynecological Ultrasound

Gynecological ultrasounds are used to examine the pelvic organs to:

• Help identify a pelvic mass
• Find mass location and determine size, shape and characteristics
• Help detect problems causing pelvic pain or abnormal bleeding
• Locate the position of an intrauterine device (IUD)
• Help monitor ovulation in treating infertility

 Sonohysterography, or saline infusion as it is often called, is an ultrasound procedure we perform in our Lebanon office. Sonohysterography requires sterile water to be placed into the uterine cavity during transvaginal ultrasound. This process can help delineate more clearly the presence of lesions in the lining of the uterus. This can be particularly helpful in cases of abnormal uterine bleeding. A special appointment is required for this procedure.

Patient information on any of the procedures listed above is available in either of our offices. Please feel free to call our Lebanon or Palmyra office at 717.273.8835 with questions – our staff would be happy to assist you.
