Dr. Hammond provides Colorado Springs OBGYN care, including gynecologic surgeries, evaluation and treatment, contraception, infertility, annual examinations and preconception counseling.
Gynecological Surgeries, including:
If you are not pregnant but need an ultrasound because of pain, or because the doctor felt a cyst or other mass, we call that a pelvic ultrasound. Usually our gynecologists in Colorado Springs want to scan you through the abdomen and also through the vagina. For most women a vaginal transducer is used.
The transducer is designed to be used by gynecologists in Colorado Springs with a vaginal ultrasound. However with teenagers or women who can't have a vaginal exam, the abdominal exam will be completed. At times a full bladder may be required for an abdominal ultrasound. Consequently the Colorado Springs gynecology patient may need to drink fluid to have a full bladder prior to the exam.
