The experienced and Board-Certified Physicians of CARE FOR WOMEN OB/GYN perform ADVANCED LAPAROSCOPIC SURGICAL TECHNIQUES
10:28 am cst
LAPAROSCOPY (Greek for “look into the abdomen”)
is a minimally invasive surgical technique that allows your CARE
Physician to do just that … look directly into your abdomen and at your reproductive organs. The
benefits of LAPAROSCOPY include smaller incisions and a shorter hospital stay and recovery (it is usually performed on an out-patient basis
and, in most cases, eliminates the need for an over-night hospital stay). LAPAROSCOPIC SURGERIES
usually take about an hour and the recovery time is typically a few days.
The LAPAROSCOPE is an instrument similar to a miniature telescope with a fiber optic system that brings light into the abdomen.
Approximately as wide as a fountain pen and twice as long, the LAPAROSCOPE
is placed through a small incision made below or inside the navel.
LAPAROSCOPY is recommended to diagnose and treat many Gynecologic problems
including ENDOMETRIOSIS, FIBROIDS, OVARIAN CYSTS, ECTOPIC PREGNANCIES, and INFERTILITY. It is often used to diagnose causes of ABDOMINAL PAIN and can also be used for STERILIZATION
(as a permanent method of birth control).
LAPAROSCOPY can be useful in diagnosing and treating many gynecologic problems. Call CARE FOR WOMEN OB/GYN today to schedule an appointment and discuss your options with your CARE FOR WOMEN Physician.

January is Cervical Cancer Awareness Month
5:15 pm cst Though January is Cervical Cancer Awareness Month, women should always be aware of just
how important their Annual Pap Smears and Cervical Cancer Screenings are.
Did you know that thirty
women are diagnosed with Cervical Cancer on a daily basis in the United States? And did you know that Cervical
Cancer is a preventable disease, caused by certain types of the Human Papillomavirus (HPV)?
Know the facts:
Cervical Cancer is not hereditary; it is caused by certain types of HPV and, once a
woman is infected, abnormal cells can develop in the cervical lining. If these cells
aren’t found early, pre-cancers and then cancers can develop.
Know the numbers:
According to the American Cancer Society, approximately 30 women will be
diagnosed with Cervical Cancer daily in the United States.
Approximately 3,700 women die in the USA each year from Cervical Cancer
An estimated 20 million women become infected with HPV each year (roughly
about 8 out of 10 women).
80% of women will have had HPV in their lifetime.
