When seeking relief from painful menses or a host of other health concerns, many women of Manhattan turn to the experienced physicians at Aster OB/GYN. Situated on the Upper West Side, Aster OB/GYN offers a comfortable environment and a patient-centric approach to health care. Aster OB/GYN presents a wide range of services for women at all stages in their lives, specializing in minimally invasive surgery that enables patients to quickly return to their normal routines. 

When a patient experiences uterine bleeding or repeated miscarriage, Aster OB/GYN performs a safe hysteroscopy. The doctors utilize a thin telescopic wand that allows a full digital image of the area. Aster OB/GYN also offers endometrial ablation, a minimally invasive procedure to treat heavy menstrual bleeding. In addition, the doctors perform permanent sterilization procedures that require no incisions and take approximately 15 minutes to complete. 

Outside of these procedures, Aster OB/GYN provides adolescent care, reproductive counsel, and treatment of ovarian cysts. Aster OB/GYN also holds expertise in colposcopy, or cervical evaluation; hysterosalpingography, an X-ray procedure used to diagnose infertility; and loop electrosurgical excision procedures to remove abnormal cells from the cervix.
