Common Procedures performed by Dr. Parsa

Laparoscopic Surgery: Minimally invasive techniques using small instrumentations to perform major surgeries including hysterectomy, myomectomy and treatment of endometriosis. Benefits compared to the traditional open surgeries where a big incision is made includes faster recovery, less pain and less scar tissue formation.

Robotic Assisted Laparoscopic Surgery: Computer enhanced technology which provides 3 D visualization, better dexterity and a more precise control for the surgeon in more challenging procedures. Robotic surgery, like Laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive technique.

Hysteroscopy: Hysteroscopy is the visualization of the inside of the uterus using a small camera to evaluate and treat irregular bleeding. Fluid is used to distend the cavity, and polyps, fibroids or scar tissue inside the uterus may be removed with proper instrumentation. This can be performed in an office setting.

Uterine Ablation: For women with heavy bleeding who want to keep their uterus and to avoid a major surgical procedure, endometrial ablation is an attractive option for the right patients to permanently stop the bleeding. This procedure is not performed on women who desire future pregnancies. This can be performed in an office setting.

Colposcopy and Cervical Conization: For patients with an abnormal papsmear, the next step would be a colposcopy which is a device that allows close inspection of the cervix and vagina using high magnification to detect abnormal cells. If there is evidence of severe infection and possibility of cancer, conization allows for both the removal and treatment of the infected cells. This can be performed in an office setting.

Laparoscopic Sacral Colpopexy and Burch procedures to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence.
