In Office Procedures Q & A

What are in-office procedures?

Dr. Barrere is an experienced and skilled OB/GYN. He offers many services to improve his patient’s health and well-being, including in-office procedures.

The in-office procedures at David M. Barrere, MD, help diagnose and treat various gynecological conditions, such as abnormal or heavy vaginal bleeding and abnormal Pap smears

What are the types of in-office procedures?

Dr. Barrere performs many in-office procedures:

Endometrial ablation

Endometrial ablation is an in-office procedure for treating heavy or irregular menstrual bleeding. Dr. Barrere uses the Minerva ES® Endometrial Ablation System.  

During the procedure, Dr. Barrere inserts the Minerva ES device in your uterus. The device uses controlled energy to ablate, or destroy, the uterine lining to treat the abnormal or heavy bleading.


Endosee is an advanced diagnostic hysteroscopy. During the in-office procedure, Dr. Barrere uses the Endosee Advance visual tool — a thin tube with a light and camera — to evaluate the lining of your cervix and uterus. The imaging tool allows him to see abnormalities in the tissue that may explain your symptoms, such as a polyps or fibroids. 


A colposcopy is a procedure to evaluate the cervix after having an abnormal Pap smear.   Dr. Barrere uses a special microscope to evaluate your cervix. Tissue biopsies may also be taken to better understand the results of your abnormal Pap test.

Intrauterine device (IUD) insertion

IUDs are a form of long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) that Dr. Barrere places in your uterus. The hormonal or non-hormonal IUD prevents pregnancy for three to 10 years. 

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT)

Votiva Forma V 

Votiva Forma V is a noninvasive tool that gently heats vaginal tissue to increase blood flow to the area and stimulate collagen production. Dr. Barrere offers the in-office procedure to help women suffering from vaginal dryness, urinary incontinence, or low libido.
