Treatment of Prolapse
There are several surgical procedures that can correct support issues with pelvic prolapse. These procedures vary based on the type of pelvic prolapse and should be discussed further with your physician.
Can I go tanning or use spray tans while pregnant?
The effects of dihydroxyacetone (DHA), an ingredient in most spray tans, has not been proven either safe or unsafe. We do know that DHA can be absorbed in your bloodstream either through your skin or by inhaling the spray. In general, it is best to avoid spray tans until they have been specifically proven safe to use while pregnant.
What is a biopsy?
A biopsy is a procedure that takes a sample of body tissue so that physicians can examine the tissue more closely. Biopsies are usually done to determine the existence of cancer. The most common biopsies are needle biopsies where a needle removes a small piece of tissue to be examined in a pathology lab. Biopsies can be done in a doctor’s office or at a hospital if more advanced imaging machines are needed. Sedation and pain-relief medications can be provided to reduce any discomfort you may have.
What is a surgery pre-pay and what is included?
Due to the rising costs of health care, many providers have begun collecting from patients in advance of services. The benefit to patients is that they have a better understanding of their out-of pocket-expenses prior to receiving care and have fewer bills to pay after that service has been rendered. In most cases this pre-pay is calculated based on coinsurance since we don’t know if the deductible will be met prior to our claim being received. For patients with very high deductibles, they may be asked to pay a portion of that in advance of service and any overpayment will be reimbursed to the patient after the claim is processed by insurance.

I had my blood drawn recently. The lab tech was AMAZING! She kept me calm, distracted from the stick, and hit the vein the very first time. I love that the lab is on site, the wait time is never long, and the turnaround time on my results was quick.
