Gynecologic Surgeries

Ultrasounds are an important tool in diagnosing medical problems and in monitoring pregnancies. We are very lucky to have a team of highly skilled ultrasonographers at Women First, with state-of-the-art ultrasound units conveniently located within our office.

Ultrasound can be used to diagnose and monitor gynecologic problems such as a pelvic mass, abnormal bleeding, pelvic pain, or infertility. Pelvic ultrasound offers a quick visualization of the female pelvic organs and structures and can show the uterus, cervix, fallopian tubes and ovaries. A pelvic ultrasound may be done as an abdominal scan, as with most ultrasounds during pregnancy, or they may be a transvaginal ultrasound to allow for a better view of the uterus and ovaries. The type of ultrasound to be used will depend on which method will provide the information needed for diagnosis or treatment.

Transabdominal: A transducer is placed on the abdomen using conductive gel to scan through the abdomen.

Transvaginal: A long, wand transducer is covered by a plastic sheath, coated with conducting gel, and inserted into the vagina.

Gynecologic pelvic ultrasound can be used to evaluate:

  • The size, shape, and position of the uterus and ovaries
  • Thickness and length of the cervix
  • Changes in the shape of the bladder
  • Blood flow through pelvic organs
  • Thickness and presence of fluids or masses in the endometrium (lining of the uterus), myometrium (uterine muscle tissue), fallopian tubes, and ovaries, or in or near the bladder.

This imaging helps assist in the diagnosis and treatment of a variety of gynecologic conditions, including:

  • Fibroid tumors (benign growths), masses, cysts, and other types of tumors within the pelvic region
  • Presence and position of an intrauterine contraceptive device (IUD)
  • Pelvic pain
  • Pelvic masses—predominantly uterine and ovarian fibroids
  • Postmenopausal bleeding

Ultrasound may also assist in evaluation of infertility, as well as to discern ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy occurring outside of the uterus, usually in the fallopian tube).

I love Dr. Brown. Hands down, she is an Angel on Earth. I literally would not be here today without her. She always tells me exactly what I need to hear, she stands up for her patients, and has believed in me when I don’t believe in myself. Woman’s health isn’t just gynecological. It’s mental. It’s having someone there to hold your hand when you’re alone. And Dr. Brown continues to hold my hand and I can’t thank her enough. I will forever be indebted to her and will love her forever. I will miss her incredibly and deeply when she retires. Thank you Dr. Brown, for everything. -Tiffany Enriquez
