Heavy Menstrual Flow Solutions
Heavy, cramping, clotting menstrual flows can be physically and emotionally draining. The impact on a women’s life can be significant. If more conservative approaches have not helped, rather than resort to a hysterectomy, consider a procedure called Endometrial Ablation. Now, consider having it done in a safe, comfortable, and friendly environment – in an office setting.
Permanent Birth Control
Now that you have decided not to become pregnant in the future what are your options? Do you really need to go to the hospital for a tubal ligation? Is your partner ever going to get that vasectomy? Well, Dr. Kurss has a comfortable, safe, incision-free, effective approach that can be done right at the WWC. It is called the Essure procedure.
State of the Art Laparoscopic Surgery
Occasionally a condition arises that, despite trying more conservative measures, has to be addressed in a hospital operating room Nonetheless, with the new Minimally Invasive Surgical Approaches, you can have a Hysterectomy, Ovarian Cyst or Endometriosis removal performed thru tiny abdominal wall incisions and go home the same day or next day. Even the recovery time is significantly shorter! Dr. Kurss has been performing these procedures for many years. Please feel free to contact Dr. Kurss to see if these approaches are the best way to handle your concerns.
Dr. Kurss has extensive experience and a strong interest in caring for the menopausal and perimenopausal patient. He is a sought after speaker on this, and other topics, and is well versed in addressing your menopausal concerns, including treatment options. Bioidentical hormones and alternative approaches are as comfortably discussed as traditional prescription choices. Dr. Kurss is a member of the North American Menopause Society and has passed rigorous examinations and requirements to become a Nationally Certified Menopause Practitioner. Please contact Dr. Kurss to discuss any of your menopausal concerns.
Infertility is a common and highly emotionally overwhelming condition. One out of every five couples face difficulties attaining and maintaining a pregnancy. Frequently just very basic evaluations are needed to start on that path toward a new baby. Dr. Kurss also performs microscopic tubal ligation reversals – a rare skill in Western New York. Also, Dr. Kurss is the first GYN to offer a very accurate and specialized State of the Art Sperm Analysis Service.
Abnormal Pap Smear Management
We see several women a day who have pap smear irregularities. It is common and emotionally worrisome but it often resolves on its own. Let us review your history and help you thru this challenge.
Adolescents are faced with many opposing messages – peer vrs. parental pressures, what is on the net or MTV vrs. what is in their heart. Issues that can not only be confusing but potentially catastrophic if not handled properly is what we at Suburban Ob/GYN address on a daily basis. Premenstrual syndrome, heavy unpredictable menses, abstinence, contraception, sexually transmitted infection prevention are some of the most common problems that our young women face. Come in for a relaxed, informative, non-judgemental, friendly no-exam-needed evaluation with your daughter and her best friend. Let us help you help them and make the transition from her Pediatrician a comfortable one.
Female Cancer Detection
One of the most important reasons why women visit their Gynecologist is to receive a clean bill of health. Whether it be on your annual well woman visit or during a special problem visit, Dr, Kurss and his staff will screen you to be sure that there is no evidence of any of a variety of female associated precancer or cancer conditions present.
