Treatments & Procedures

The physicians and specialists at Lakewood Regional Medical Center are dedicated to providing our patients with individualized treatment and rehabilitation plans to get them on the road to recovery. We take great pride in making sure our patients receive the best treatments and procedures for all gynecologic conditions.

Among the most common treatments and procedures for gynecologic conditions:

Cryosurgery

Cryosurgery is the use of extreme cold in order to destroy diseased tissue. This procedure can be performed at a doctor's office or an operating room, depending on the reason for having the procedure.

D&C

D & C, or dilation and curettage, is a surgical procedure usually performed after a miscarriage. Dilation means to open up the cervix, and curettage means to remove the contents of the uterus.

Hysterectomy

Hysterectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the uterus and may also involve the removal of the cervix, ovaries and the fallopian tubes.

LEEP procedure

This procedure uses a heated, wire loop in order to remove cells and tissue. The LEEP procedure can be used as part of treatment or to help make a diagnosis of cancerous or abnormal cells and tissue.

Myomectomy

A myomectomy is a surgical procedure performed to remove uterine fibroids. Uterine fibroids are usually benign, but uncomfortable tumors that grow in the uterus.
