|Berkshire Health Systems Further Expands Services in Northern Berkshire: Urology and Gynecology Joins Specialties Providing Surgery
Berkshire Health Systems has announced a further expansion of outpatient surgical procedures being performed at the Northern Berkshire Campus of Berkshire Medical Center. Urologic and Gynecologic minimally invasive surgery procedures are now being scheduled for the state-of-the-art operating rooms at the Northern Berkshire Campus. They join outpatient Orthopedic surgery, which started in January of this year.
Urologic surgery is being performed by Stephen St. Clair, MD, and Kevin Killeen, MD, board certified specialists with Urology Professional Services of BMC. The Urologists are scheduling outpatient surgery for anyone from the age of 15 years and older, including scrotal procedures that cannot be performed in an office environment, and prostate biopsies, low risk ureteroscopy for stones, low risk bladder tumor resection and botox injections in the bladder, among others.
Gynecologic surgery is being performed by Charles O’Neill, MD, Susan Yates, MD, and Kalpesh Patel, MD, who all provide care through Berkshire OB/GYN of BMC’s Northern Berkshire office. They are providing minimally invasive Loop Electrosurgical Excision (LEEP), a procedure that can remove abnormal cells or tissue in the cervix and surrounding area. Other minimally invasive Gynecologic procedures will be added as the service continues to expand in North Berkshire.
Urologic and Gynecologic outpatient surgery joins numerous services provided through the Northern Berkshire Campus of BMC, including 24-hour emergency care, advanced imaging, mammography, endoscopy, home care, laboratory, tobacco treatment and others.
