Obstetrician-Gynecologists specialize in the general medical care of women, including issues related to pregnancy, as well as the care of reproductive organs, breasts and sexual function. A Gynecologist also initiates screening for cancer, and provides for the management of hormonal disorders, treatment of infections and some surgical procedures.
Lakeview Clinic offers the Essure Procedure as an option for women considering permanent birth control. The Essure procedure does not require general anesthesia and is performed at Lakeview Clinic's Waconia Office. This procedure offers the benefit of a faster recovery time. Patients are able to walk out of the office shortly after the procedure and are often back to work the next day. This is compared to the traditional tubal ligation where the procedure is performed in the hospital and patients are often off work for a week. Please call us at 952-442-4461 to make an appointment to discuss this procedure with one of our qualified OB/GYN physicians.
