Surgical Abortion Services

All surgical abortion services are provided by Board Certified OB/GYN physicians.  Unlike other facilities who may employ physicians of other specialties such as family medicine or internal medicine, Garden State Gynecology’s medical staff is composed of physician’s who are specifically trained in women’s healthcare.

Surgical abortion procedures are performed through 14 weeks in a safe, gentle, caring atmosphere.  We offer full anesthesia services provided by a Board Certified Anesthesiologist.  This will allow you to be completely asleep and comfortable.  Other providers may offer “sedation” services.  This is not comparable to full anesthesia services.  Nor does it provide the safety and comfort that anesthesia administered by Board Certified Anesthesiologist can offer.  For those patients who do wish to receive anesthesia or sedation we offer surgical procedure with local anesthetic in which the surgical area is numbed by the patient is awake.

Surgical abortion services are performed by gently opening the cervical canal to allow for a very brief aspiration of the uterus .  This  procedure is commonly referred to as a D&C.  This procedure is very safe and lasts only about 5-7 minutes.  Following this procedure you will be taken to our recovery area where you will be allowed to rest comfortably until you are ready to be discharged.  You will be monitored by our nursing staff, provided with light nourishment and given written post-operative instructions before being discharged home.

For all patients electing to receive anesthesia services it is very important not to have anything to eat or drink for at least 8 hours before your appointment time. All patients must bring a support person to escort them home once they have been discharged from the facility.  Asleep abortion in NJ is a safe comfortable option.

The Manual Vacuum Aspiration Procedure

Our physicians are highly skilled in this specialized procedure that is not available in most facilities. Physicians performing this specialized procedure require the highest levels of expertise and training. This option to terminate an early pregnancy is available for up to 9 weeks of pregnancy.   This procedure is often referred to as non-surgical being it requires minimal to no scraping and no vacuum aspiration via machine.

 The Manual Vacuum Aspiration Procedure is completed in a private examination room.   The entire procedure takes only about 5 minutes.  For your comfort  and safety during this procedure we offer deep sedation administered by a board certified anesthesiologist.

Manual Vacuum Aspiration vs Traditional Surgical Abortion

  • No scraping of the uterus
  • No electric suction via suction machine
  • Less instrumentation
  • Patients report less post operative cramping and bleeding

During the MVA procedure, the doctor gently stretches the natural opening of your cervix with small  dilators and inserts a thin tube. This tube is called a cannula. The doctor attaches a handheld device to the cannula and applies gentle pressure for approximately two minutes.

Some patients feel this process is more natural as it uses a gentle pressure that causes the natural release of the pregnancy tissue from the uterus.

Non-Surgical Abortion Services

image5Non-surgical abortions are often referred to as medical abortions.  This early option is available to women within the first 10 weeks (70 days) of their pregnancy.

The regimen consists of two medications, Mifeprex followed by misoprostol.  Mifeprex (also knows about as mifepristone or RU486) is a progesterone blocker and is the only FDA approved non-surgical option for early abortion.  For more information regarding Mifeprex click here.  Misoprostol is a prostaglandin that will help induce contractions and allow the contents of the uterus to be passed.  This regimen is effective in 97% of cases with no surgical intervention required.  For the 3% of patients in which the regimen is not effective, a surgical procedure may be required.

Many other facilities offer non-surgical abortions but do not use Mifeprex. They opt to use cheaper and less effective alternatives such as methotrexate. Methotrexate is commonly used in chemotherapy and not approved by the FDA for non-surgical abortions. It also is less effective than Mifeprex and increases the chances of having to have a surgical procedure. At Garden State Gynecology we are committed to providing the safest and most effective care and therefore elect to use Mifeprex despite its increased cost.

Your doctor and the support staff at Garden State Gynecology will answer all questions you may have to help you decide which of these services you chose.
