Learn More About What We Do


Your doctor may wish for you to undergo a colposcopy if your Pap test result is abnormal. During this procedure, your vagina, cervix and vulva are checked for signs of disease. If your doctor finds unusual cells during the colposcopy, a tissue sample can be collected for biopsy.


Hysteroscopy is a procedure that allows your doctor to look inside the uterus, diagnose and treat causes of abnormal bleeding. During this procedure, your doctor inserts a thin, lighted tube into the vagina.


Hysterectomy is a surgery to remove the uterus. At CCMH, we proudly offer laparoscopic hysterectomy procedures which are minimally invasive in comparison to traditional hysterectomy procedures. Your doctor may also remove the fallopian tubes and ovaries during surgery. After a hysterectomy, a woman no longer has menstrual periods and cannot become pregnant.


During amniocentesis, amniotic fluid is removed from the uterus during pregnancy. Amniotic fluid surrounds and protects a baby during pregnancy, and it contains fetal cells and various proteins. Your doctor may recommend this procedure for testing or treatment.

Laser Surgeries

Laser surgery (burns or vaporizes abnormal cells or removes small sections of tissue). This is a noninvasive type of surgery with the goal of less pain for the patient, smaller incisions, and fewer complications.

Laparoscopic Procedures

Laparoscopic procedures are a minimally invasive approach to surgery. They allow patients the benefit of less pain, smaller incisions, fewer complications and often a shortened hospital stay.


Cryosurgery (cryotherapy) uses extreme cold from liquid nitrogen (argon gas) to destroy abnormal tissues. Cryosurgery treats external tumors, such as those on the skin. Cryosurgery also treats tumors inside the body. For these internal tumors, liquid nitrogen is circulated through a hollow instrument (cryoprobe) which is placed in contact with the tumor.

Endometrial Ablation

Endometrial ablation surgically destroys the endometrium (lining of the uterus). The goal of endometrial ablation is to reduce menstrual flow. In some women, however, menstrual flow can stop completely. During this procedure, your doctor inserts slender tools through the passageway between your vagina and uterus (cervix).
