For Providers

The DuPont Clinic is a referral center for ultrasound-guided procedures, primarily for management of abnormal and high-risk pregnancies. If you would like to refer a patient or discuss a potential referral, please call us at (202) 844-2004 or complete the online referral form here and we will respond as soon as possible. 

Ectopic Pregnancy

Sonographic evaluation and minimally invasive management of extrauterine pregnancy.

At the DuPont Clinic, we specialize in the diagnosis and management of advanced ectopic pregnancies. We have years of experience in the ultrasonographic evaluation of all types of ectopic pregnancies. Through the use of ultrasound-guided injection, we are able to manage most ectopic pregnancies without surgery.

Intrauterine pregnancy complicated by fetal or maternal complications

The DuPont Clinic specializes in the termination of pregnancy for all indications. 

Dilation and evacuation through 26-weeks gestation

D&E can be performed at the DuPont Clinic or hospital depending on histroy and needs of the patient. 

Induction termination after 20-weeks gestation

Induction can be performed at the DuPont Clinic or hospital depending on history and needs of the patient. 

Early Induced Abortion

The DuPont Clinic does not have a minimum gestational age. We will perform uterine aspiration with a manual-vacuum source as soon as a pregnancy test turns positive. 

Additional Services

Selective reduction of multiple gestation pregnancies

We perform selective reductions down to twins or singletons from 12 weeks and beyond for all indications. We perform selective reduction from triplets (or higher order multiples) to twins. We also perform selective reductions from twins to singleton pregnancies. By reducing the number of fetuses, the survival of the remaining ones can be increased.

Intrauterine Device Insertion with Sedation

For patients who need more pain control, we offer placement of Liletta, a levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine contraceptive, with local numbing and light intravenous sedation. Liletta is an extremely effective contraceptive method with effectiveness similar to tubal ligation (tying tubes). It last for 6 years. We use mild intravenous sedation, numbing lidocaine gel, and more numbing lidocaine around the cervix before placing the Liletta in the uterus. We also give ketorolac to reduce cramping afterwards.

Ultrasonographic evaluation of gynecologic conditions

Intracavitary and submucosal leiomyomas (fibroids). Using saline-infusion sonohysterography, we can determine the location and intracavitary extent of leiomyomas. The intracavity proportion of leiomyomas is commonly used to determine whether hysteroscopic resection is likely to be successful. Saline-infusion sonohysterography involves inserting a small tube into the uterus. Then a transvaginal ultrasound is performed as a small amount of saline saline is placed within the uterine cavity.  The saline allows the location of the fibroids to be seen more precisely.

Endometrial polyps. Using saline-infusion sonohysterography (SIS), we can diagnose endometrial polyps accurately and easily. Like for fibroids, SIS can be used to see endometrial polyps inside the uterus. The saline in the uterus will outline the polyps, making their presence very clear.
