Gentleway® Abortion

Madison Avenue Gynecology specializes in early abortion methods. We offer the Gentleway® Abortion, otherwise known as a Manual Vacuum Aspiration (MVA), which is done between 5-9 weeks of pregnancy. It is one of the least invasive procedures that we offer.

Manual Vacuum Aspration

The Gentleway® Abortion is done with a mini handheld vacuum, which produces gentle suction. The procedure takes about 5 minutes with no electronic machinery used, and no scraping is involved.

You have the option to elect either local anesthesia or general anesthesia. If you choose general anesthesia, you will be put to sleep for the length of the abortion procedure and your escort will not be permitted within the operating room. Minimal follow up or recovery time is necessary and you will be able leave the office able to resume normal activities.
