Suction dilation and curettage (D&C) is a procedure involving the insertion of a thin, plastic tube inserted through the cervix into the uterus. The tube is attached to a suction device or vacuum, which is used to suction tissue out of the uterus through the tube. Dilation refers to the opening of the uterus, while curettage refers to the removal of tissue within the uterus with an instrument called a curette. This procedure is performed as a treatment for miscarriage or retained placenta after delivery. The procedure may be done in the Women First office with a local anesthetic. You can usually go home within an hour or two of the procedure.

I've been seeing Dr. Price for many years and have always had a great experience with her. Dr. Price has always listened to me and addressed all of my questions and concerns. My only complaint is with a former nurse I saw for medical issues who didn't further investigate them and it got progressively worse. Luckily the current nurse practitioner diagnosed me correctly and have received the correct treatment.

When I was looking for a gyno, Jeanette and Dr. Booth came highly recommended from family that see them and rightly so! Jeanette has the best bedside manner and takes the time to be thorough and understand the patient. When I had an issue outside of office hours, I was able to submit a question on the Follow My Health app and got a phone call in less than 30 minutes from the care team. They’re the best and I tell everyone about them!

I’ve been a patient at Women 1st for 16 years and cannot say enough about this practice. Every staff member is caring, friendly, and very good at what they do. The physicians & nurses are some of the best in the state of Kentucky, which is why I currently live in Georgetown and drive to Louisville to continue my care. Highly recommend Dr. Warren or Dr. Price!
