Abstract

As minor gynecologic procedures move from the operating room to the office, providers need to ensure that patients are comfortable and that procedures are performed safely. Although local anesthesia is commonly used for gynecologic procedures, a multimodal approach may be more effective. If necessary, sedation can be safely provided in an office setting with the correct tools and training. This article reviews evidence-based approaches to pain management for gynecologic procedures in the ambulatory setting.
