If anyone has any questions pertaining to OB/GYN, just shoot me a note and I'll do my best to give you current and accurate information. I look forward to getting to know the people of Loganville.

Hi I'm Dr Todd Bashuk.  I have recently relocated my practice to Loganville, GA from North Atlanta and Northside Hospital.  I am new to this area and have been looking for a unique (ok blogging may not be that unique) way to get to know the people of Loganville, Gwinnett, and Walton County.

A little about me, I am a board certified Ob/GYN.  I am well versed in all areas of my specialty however I do have some particular passions.  I am experienced in minimally invasive surgical techniques, including laparoscopy, Davinci Robotic procedures, and other outpatient techniques.  I did my first total laparoscopic hysterectomy in 2002, one year after I graduated residency.  Before that I performed many open abdominal procedures with a 6 inch scar to perform the same procedure that I can now do with 3 5mm incisions.  The first time a patient came back for a post op visit with no pain and no visible scars I was amazed that a hysterectomy could be done without a large incision.  Since that moment I have taken many courses, simulations, and surgeries to become proficient in laparoscopy and robotic surgery

I have many other interests including Bioidentical hormones, infertility, and 4d ultrasound. 

I used to have many hobbies and interests, then I had kids, Jake 16 (ugh he is driving), Noa, 13, and Aaron 9.  So now I watch/coach baseball, football, lacrosse, basketball, help with homework, and deal with the crisis of the day.  I wouldn't have it any other way. 

Enough about me, If anyone has any questions pertaining to my specialty, just shoot me a note and I'll do my best to give you current and accurate information.  I look forward to getting to know the people of Loganville.

Short Term Birth Control Oral Contraceptive (OCP) - Your Daily Option. There are 4 basic varieties of “The Pill,” which differ due to the amount of estrogen in each pill. There are mini-pills with no estrogen, low dose pills, high dose, and pills that vary the amount of estrogen throughout the monthly cycle. End result, the higher the dose of estrogen the better cycle control but the risk of side effects increases. Nuva Ring — Your Monthly Option. The Nuva Ring is a small plastic ring that fits into your vagina. It’s a time-release device that slowly releases a small amount of estrogen and progestin. You wear the device for 23 days and then remove for 7 days. Injectable Depo Provera —Your 3 Month Option. Depo Provera is a very effective birth-control option that is usually injected into your arm or upper thigh muscle just once every three months. As another benefit, many patients report that after 2-3 doses of Depo Provera they begin to have light to almost absent periods.

Long Term Birth Control Mirena IUD — Your 5 year, non-estrogen option. Mirena is a hormone-releasing system, placed in your uterus to prevent pregnancy for up to 5 years. It’s made of flexible plastic and contains a progestin hormone. Unlike many birth control pills, Mirena does not contain an estrogen. Mirena is 99.5% effective in preventing pregnancy without the hassle of taking a daily pill. Paraguard® IUD — Your 10 year, hormone-free option. Paraguard Intrauterine Contraceptive (IUC) is more effective than the Pill and unlike the Pill, ring, and shots it’s hormone-free. It’s currently the best option for women who prefer not to use hormones or cannot due to health reasons. It’s virtually hassle-free, no more daily of weekly routines.
