Incompetent Cervix OB/GYN
If you live in Acworth or the surrounding areas and are looking for an OB/GYN physician who is trained and experienced in treating patients with Incompetent Cervix, call Marietta OB-GYN Affiliates, P.A. We offer treatment for patients with Incompetent Cervix as well as other types of high risk pregnancies.
Diagnosis of an Incompetent Cervix can be made by a qualified physician using a pelvic exam or an ultrasound. Treatment involves a procedure called a Cerclage where the cervix is sewn closed, usually between weeks fourteen and sixteen, to prevent premature labor. The sutures are removed between weeks thirty-six and thirty-eight to prevent any problems when you go into labor. Our Obstetricians are experienced in performing Cerclage procedures and in delivering babies for mothers with Incompetent Cervix. We deliver babies in the state-of-the-art birthing center at Wellstar Kennestone Hospital in Marietta.
