Cervical cancer screening
When cervical cancer is detected early it’s often easier to treat. Screenings for the disease are usually part of your annual checkup and may take the form of a Pap smear which looks for cancerous cells or an HPV test which detects infection.
InTone® for incontinence
InTone treats urinary incontinence, also known as a leaky bladder, with voice-guided exercise, visual biofeedback and an inflatable probe and muscle stimulator. With guaranteed results, InTone targets underlying causes of incontinence including over-active weak pelvic muscles.
Ultrasounds are in-office diagnostic procedures that use imaging and sound waves to examine specifics areas of your body such as your uterus and ovaries, gallbladder and blood vessels. They can help detect pregnancy, gynecological abnormalities, and more.
Hysterectomy and hysteroscopy
Dr. Prewitt performs numerous types of hysterectomy procedures which remove all of the uterus or a part of the uterus depending on a woman’s needs. Hysterectomies can be vaginal, laparoscopic, or abdominal. Dr. Prewitt specializes in the daVinci hysterectomy method which utilizes advanced technology and robotic arms which allow for incredible surgical precision and easier patient recovery. When hysteroscopy procedures are performed, Dr. Prewitt can view inside the uterus to find the cause of dysfunctional uterine bleeding.
Management of abnormal Pap smears
If you have an abnormal Pap smear Dr. Prewitt will help determine additional tests and/or treatments you may require. A colposcopy may be used to find abnormal cells on your cervix. One potential treatment for abnormal cervical cells is LEEP, or loop electrosurgical excision procedure, which cuts away abnormal tissue using an electrified wire loop.
