We provide safer first trimester and second trimester surgical and non-surgical abortions from the very earliest pregnancies up to 24 weeks, in a safe, clean, comfortable, ultra-modern, state-of-the-art private OB/GYN office in New York City. Our New York State-licensed and board-certified OB/GYN physician is a very experienced expert in OB/GYN ultrasound and first and second trimester abortions. The office based surgery facility is managed by Liberty OBS. We have a caring and experienced staff who all strive to foster a safer, positive, and comfortable experience for the patient.
We have had an excellent track record of safety with an extremely low complication rate, compared with other facilities. We take extra steps, that other facilities do not, in order to provide an extra measure of safety for our patients.
Unlike other facilities, we use ultrasound before,
during, and after the first and second trimester abortions, as well as at the follow-up visit, to ensure the safety of our patients and completeness of the procedure. We have the most current, accurate, state-of-the-art ultrasound machines on-site,
including multi-frequency abdominal and vaginal probes, which allow even the very earliest pregnancies to be diagnosed accurately, and not poor quality, obsolete ultrasound machines found at other facilities. Our board-certified OB/GYN physician is an expert at OB/GYN ultrasound, which is very important, since the quality and accuracy of the ultrasound is greatly dependent on both the quality of the equipment and the skill of the person doing the ultrasound.
We use only sterilized surgical instruments and sterile, one-use-only, disposable plastic uterine curettes, unlike some unsanitary "bargain" clinics that reuse these curettes and do not practice safety, cleanliness, and sterility, such as ones in Jackson Heights, the South Bronx, or downtown Brooklyn.
For the added convenience of our patients, we provide safer early surgical abortions starting from the very earliest that the pregnancy can be seen by ultrasound, in contrast to other facilities that do not perform early abortions. A surgical abortion can be done safely only if the pregnancy can be definitely seen inside the uterus on careful ultrasound exam. The lower limit of visualization of a pregnancy by ultrasound is
4 weeks, 0 days by menstrual age (approximately 2 weeks after conception or
approximately 1 week after implantation of the embryo into the endometrium,
the lining of the uterus). Below 4 weeks, a pregnancy cannot be visualized
by ultrasound even with multi-frequency vaginal probes (which we use);
therefore, a safe surgical abortion is not possible below 4 weeks.
Please beware of some unethical clinics that falsely claim to do surgical abortions at 3 weeks, which is definitely not safe to attempt, since the pregnancy cannot be seen at 3 weeks. If the pregnancy cannot be visualized inside the uterus by vaginal ultrasound, the possibility of an ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy outside the uterus usually in a fallopian tube) must be recognized, and these patients must be followed closely and carefully with serial blood tests to measure the quantitative beta-HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin or pregancy hormone) levels and vaginal sonograms. An ectopic pregnancy can be a life-threatening emergency, and patients must be followed promptly and carefully. Ectopic pregnancies are often difficult to detect. Our board-certified OB/GYN physician is skilled at diagnosing and treating ectopic pregnancies with state-of-the-art surgical and non-surgical methods.
We offer convenient, accurate, state-of-the-art laboratory testing on site.
Patients may choose from several methods of state-of-the-art anesthesia, including intravenous sedation (asleep), twilight (conscious or awake sedation), and local (awake). For intravenous sedation, we utilize very short acting anesthetic agents, which are carefully titrated at an individualized dose depending on the patient's weight, response, and length of the procedure. Unlike at any other facility, patients in our operating room are carefully and continuously monitored with redundant monitors for pulse oximetry, blood pressure, pulse, and respiratory rate. As an important safety measure, resuscitative equipment is always readily available.
Our physician is a very experienced, New York State-licensed, and board-certified OB/GYN physician with special expertise in abortion and ultrasound. We do not use family practice physicians with limited experience in OB/GYN care. Our physician is an attending physician who maintains active hospital privileges in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at New York-Presbyterian/Queens Hospital (formerly New York Hospital Medical Center of Queens).
We maintain the utmost in patient confidentiality. No parental consent is required to have an abortion or seek any OB/GYN services such as birth control or treatment of sexually transmitted diseases at our office.
Patients are individually counseled and educated on what to expect, including possible risks, benefits, and options. Our counselors
are professionals with a warm and caring attitude to help each individual
patient understand her options and make the best choice under her individual
circumstances. We are non-judgmental and understand the importance of a woman's personal right to choose whether to have a therapeutic, induced abortion or to continue on with her pregnancy. This right of choice is a fundamental human right that is guaranteed by the United States Constitution.
