Always practicing the best in medical technology, here is a brief list of several common procedures we perform regularly.
In-Office LAB Services
Bay View OB / GYN is proud to offer in-office LAB services. McLaren Northern Michigan does the majority of our lab and pathology processing and a full-time phlebotomist is now in our office for patient convenience. Patients can utilize McLaren Northern Michigan hospital if they desire, otherwise they can get their blood drawn right in our office with little or no wait time.
Comprehensive Obstetrical Services
We are the only practice in Northern Michigan to offer this in-office laser treatment to treat vaginal dryness, itching, burning, atrophy and painful urination and/or intercourse.
Ultrasound, Ablations, and Tubal Ligations
An ablation is an effective treatment for heavy periods. Novasure is an effective, nonhormonal, permanent treatments that involve a minimally invasive procedure that can be performed in your doctor’s office or in a hospital.
Tubal ligation is a permanent form of female sterilization, in which the fallopian tubes are severed and sealed, or “pinched shut,” in order to prevent fertilization. This procedure is performed in the hospital under general anesthesia or during a cesarean section.
Advanced Laproscopic & Laser Surgery
Menopausal Treatment including Hormonal & Alternative Therapies
Strong Specialist Affiliations
One of the options we offer is Essure, a permanent birth control procedure that works with your body to create a natural barrier against pregnancy. This gentle procedure can be performed in our office in less than an hour. The Essure procedure does not require any cutting into the body; instead, one of our Essure trained doctors inserts a small flexible micro-insert through the body’s natural pathways (vagina, cervix, and uterus) and into your fallopian tubes. Unlike birth control pills, patches, rings, and some forms of IUDs, Essure does not contain hormones to interfere with your natural menstrual cycle. Your periods should more or less continue in their natural state.
Gyn Evaluations, Cancer Screening, & Pelvic Disease/Pain Treatment
Management of Urinary Incontinence & Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery
Bayview OB / GYN has been utilizing Electronic Medical Records since 2010, and has recently incorporated a Lab Interface so results are received directly into the patient chart. We will continue to evolve to comply with Meaningful Use Requirements as well as to serve our patients as best we can.
