Our practice provides a wide variety of gynecological care from the onset of adolescence to menopause and all stages in between. Our medical services include annual well-woman exams, infertility testing, and family planning. We provide preconception counseling, evaluation and management of premenstrual syndrome, menopausal symptoms, endometriosis, pelvic pain, genital infections, abnormal uterine bleeding, ovarian cysts and uterine fibroids. Dr. Hardy also has a special interest in the evaluation and management of sexual dysfunction.
Our in-office procedures include IUD insertions, colposcopy for abnormal PAP smears, endometrial and vulvar biopsies, and Nexplanon® sub-dermal implants for contraception. In order to better serve our patients, Dr. Hardy has expanded in-office services to include hysteroscopy – a procedure to visualize inside the uterus, and hysteroscopic bilateral tubal ligation using Essure®. Surgical procedures primarily requiring general anesthesia, intravenous sedation or spinal anesthesia are performed at the Anne Arundel Medical Center in the Edwards Surgical pavilion or the Acute Care Pavilion. These procedures include minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery, abdominal and vaginal surgeries for benign gynecological conditions.
The LEEP cervical conization procedure for pre-cancer of the cervix is performed under local anesthesia in the operating room setting.
