Frequently Asked Questions

Can multiple ultrasounds or MRIs during pregnancy harm the fetus?

Prenatal imaging and diagnostics using ultrasounds performed either abdominally or transvaginally are safe during pregnancy. Additionally, MRI during pregnancy is believed to be safe with no adverse risks on unborn babies.

What are the benefits of choosing laparoscopic surgery?

The smaller incisions are less painful. As a result, we see a decreased need for pain medication, shorter recovery time, and better cosmetic results. Patients can eat when they feel ready, and there is less internal scarring, less hernia, less chance of infection, and early return to work.

What is the normal recovery time after a Gynecological laparoscopic surgery?

This is usually individualized based on the type of gynecological laparoscopic surgery and the patient. Most ladies require pain medication for one week following laparoscopic surgery. It may be advised to avoid intercourse, tub baths, douching, strenuous exercise, or heavy lifting for 4-6 weeks. Many patients choose to return to work within two weeks, provided their job is not physically strenuous. 

What is prenatal care?

Prenatal care is the care you receive when you are pregnant. It includes care given by your healthcare provider, support from your family and an extra focus on giving yourself the care you need during this special time. Good prenatal care gives you the best chance for a healthy pregnancy and healthy baby.
