  • Colposcopy

    Colposcopy is a procedure performed by a doctor to closely examine the cervix for abnormal cells. A colposcopy is typically performed as a follow up to an abnormal Pap smear. If the doctor sees any abnormal cells during the colposcopy, he or she may remove the cells for clinical examination.
  • Endometrial Biopsy

    Endometrial biopsy is a test used to diagnose endometrial cancer or other endometrial issues, such as abnormal bleeding. During an endometrial biopsy, a gynecologist takes a small sample of the endometrium (tissue lining the uterus) to examine it for abnormal cells.
  • Hysterectomy is an operation to remove a woman’s uterus. The doctor may also remove the fallopian tubes and ovaries, depending on a woman's health needs.
  • In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

    In vitro fertilization (IVF) brings together a woman’s egg and a man’s sperm in a laboratory dish to create embryos. These embryos are then placed in the uterus. At Rush, doctors may recommend IVF for men and women who want a baby but face infertility or other obstacles.
  • During a laparoscopic procedure, a surgeon makes small incisions in the abdomen to insert a scope (a small, thin tube fitted with a camera) and other surgical tools. Surgeons use laparoscopy to diagnose and treat many conditions.
  • Prenatal care is medical care to help pregnant women and their babies stay healthy. It involves regular doctor visits and may involve lifestyle changes, such as not smoking or drinking during pregnancy.
  • Robotic surgery is a minimally invasive technique that surgeons use. The technique allows for smaller incisions and more precise movements during surgery, which benefits patients.
