Offering Advanced Treatments Using the Latest Technology

The professional team of gynecologists at our Raleigh OB-GYN office are experienced in the latest medical technology. Our experience and continuing education allow us to deliver the highest quality and innovation in female surgical care.

We offer our patients a wide variety of in-office, out-patient as well as in-hospital surgical procedures to treat female health conditions.

Office procedure used in the evaluation of an abnormal pap smear or cervical lesion. A speculum is placed in the vagina, and the physician uses a magnifying scope to examine the cervix and upper vagina. Tissue biopsy samples may be obtained at this time to guide further management. It is normal to experience light vaginal bleeding and brown discharge for several days following the procedure.

Office procedure to treat certain types of cervix cell abnormalities. A special probe is used to freeze an area of the cervix, destroying the abnormal cells. It may be used to treat genital warts or other lesions as well. It is normal to experience mild cramping during the procedure, and afterwards, a thick vaginal discharge will be present for 2-4 weeks.

Outpatient surgical procedure used in certain situations to evaluate and treat abnormal cervical cells (dysplasia) which have the potential to progress to cancer. A sharp instrument such as a scalpel or laser is used to remove the concerning portion of the cervix.

In Office or Outpatient surgical procedure used in certain situations to treat abnormal cells (dysplasia) of the cervix. An electric current is directed through a thin wire loop which is used to remove a portion of the cervix containing the area of abnormality.

Office procedure used to examine the cells that line the cavity of the uterus. This test may be recommended in the evaluation of abnormal bleeding or infertility. A thin tube is inserted through the cervix into the uterus during a pelvic exam. A small amount of tissue is removed and sent to the lab for analysis. It is normal to experience cramping during the procedure and some light bleeding for several days.

Outpatient surgery used for the diagnosis and treatment of abnormal bleeding. A similar procedure may be used to evacuate the uterus of pregnancy tissue following a miscarriage. The cervix is gently opened with dilators, and an instrument is then inserted through the cervix to clear the uterine cavity of any thickened tissue.

In office or outpatient surgery performed to assess the cavity of the uterus. A small camera is inserted through the dilated cervix to allow the interior of the uterus to be visualized. This procedure is often combined with a D&C. Polyps, fibroids, and other intrauterine masses may be evaluated and sometimes removed in this way.

Imaging technique performed in an office setting to examine the uterus, ovaries, and surrounding tissues. A thin ultrasound probe is placed in the vagina and rotated in order to examine the pelvic structures. In certain cases, a sterile saline solution may be instilled into the uterine cavity through the cervix to improve visualization – a sonohysterogram.

Surgical procedure used to remove benign masses (fibroids) from the uterus. Myomectomy is performed in cases where is it desirable for the patient to retain the uterus. Depending on their size, location, and depth, fibroids may be removed through an open abdominal incision or through a laparoscope or hysteroscope.

The da Vinci Robotic Assisted Hysterectomy Surgery is an innovative surgery which is less invasive and offers numerous potential benefits over traditional open surgery. Additional information can be found at the da Vinci website.

Major surgical procedure used to treat various gynecological conditions such as cancers and precancers, fibroids and other growths, abnormal bleeding, pelvic pain, and prolapse. The uterus is removed (and sometimes the tubes and ovaries), usually through an incision on the abdomen or in the vagina. This type of surgery may be recommended when other more conservative therapies have not provided adequate results.

Surgical approach involving the placement of a camera and various instruments through small incisions to allow access to the pelvis and abdomen. Operations performed through the laparoscope allow the advantage of shorter hospital stays, less postoperative pain, and a more rapid recovery period for the patient. Various procedures may be performed in this way including hysterectomy, treatment of endometriosis, ovarian cysts, and ectopic pregnancies as well as the evaluation of pelvic pain or infertility.

In office or outpatient surgical procedure used to treat heavy or prolonged menstrual periods by destroying the superficial tissue layer of the uterine cavity. Often a hysteroscopy and D&C are performed along with this procedure. For more information, visit NovaSure.com.

Procedure performed in women who request a permanent end to their fertility. Tubal ligation may be done during hospitalization for the delivery of a baby, either at the time of a cesarean section or through a small abdominal incision performed soon after a vaginal delivery. Alternatively, it may be done remote from a pregnancy as an outpatient procedure through the laparoscope.

Procedure to resolve gynecologic health issues often caused by menopause. The MonaLisa Touch is an in-office procedure that uses a medical laser to deliver controlled energy to the vaginal tissue allowing cells to make more collagenis. The procedure takes less than 5 minutes per treatment. MonaLisa Touch is virtually painless and requires no anesthesia. For more information, visit SmileMonaLisa.com

"I have been seeing the doctors at Wilkerson OBGYN for over 12 years. I delivered my two children with their doctors over the years. I have not had anything but wonderful experiences with their office. The front desk staff, the nurses, and the doctors are always helpful and courteous. I can call with questions for the advice nurse and am always called back quickly and with the answers to my questions. I refer my own patients to their practice and will continue to do so due to their excellent care that I have received."
