Our Affiliate System

We are building one organization with affiliates in two regions. Our parent company, now known as Prisma Health, supports both affiliates with overall direction and leadership as we continue to align. We will soon share one brand across the entire organization to better reflect this. The rebranded Palmetto Health-USC Medical Group will continue to operate as a joint venture between the Midlands affiliate and the USC School of Medicine.

Essure

When your family is complete, take control

If you have completed your family, you can take control with Hysteroscopic Sterilization. The physicians at Gynecology Specialists are performing in-office sterilization, using Essure® which is the most effective protection available to a woman against an unplanned pregnancy. The incision-free procedure takes less than an hour, and most women return to regular activities the next day. Our in-office sterilization offers a permanent birth control procedure that works with your body to create a natural barrier against pregnancy.

This procedure is covered by most insurance providers. If the Essure procedure is performed in a doctor’s office, depending on your specific insurance plan, payment may be as low as a simple co-pay.

Essure offers women what no other birth control ever has:

  • Minimally invasive with no scars
  • Local anesthesia
  • Speedy recovery
  • Hormone-free contraception
  • No guessing – your doctor can confirm when you can rely on Essure for birth control
  • Short procedure time – Essure only takes about 15 minutes to perform
  • And you’ll never have to worry about unplanned pregnancy again.

The Essure procedure is permanent and is not reversible. Therefore, you should be sure you do not want children in the future.
