What issues does gynecology address?
Gynecology addresses issues that have to do with the health of a woman’s reproductive organs, including the uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, and vagina. The practice also can address a wide range of gynecology issues, including:
- Menstruation and fertility
- Hormone disorders
- Fibroids and cysts
- Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
- Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
- Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)
- Uncomplicated or Low-Risk Pregnancies/Deliveries
- Uterine Leiomyoma
- Abnormal Vaginal Bleeding
- Complicated Pregnancies/Childbirths
- Genital HPV
- Hypertension (High Blood Pressure)
- Menopausal & Post-Menopausal Disorders
Women's Wellness & Healthcare Clinic provides preventive care and management of gynecological issues and offers special expertise in performing minimally invasive gynecological procedures.
The practice also provides specialized care in the treatment of fibroids. Fibroids are noncancerous growths that develop during a woman’s childbearing years. While many fibroids cause no symptoms at all, they can lead to heavy bleeding, pelvic pain, and prolonged periods. Without treatment, fibroids can impact your fertility later in life.
What is involved in preventive gynecological care?
An annual wellness visit for all women, regardless of age, is an important part of maintaining optimal health. At this visit, your doctor performs a thorough pelvic exam and may also do a Pap smear to screen for cervical cancer.
Gynecology care can also include screening for sexually transmitted diseases. The gynecology care at Women's Wellness & Healthcare Clinic includes personal consultations, during which time you can discuss any symptoms you’re having or concerns you may have about your sexual habits, periods, family plans, or lifestyle.
What gynecology procedures are available?
Women's Wellness & Healthcare Clinic provides a wide variety of tests and procedures:
- Pap smears
- Pelvic exams
- Blood tests
- Urine exams
- Minimally invasive surgeries
At their clinic, the team offers minimally invasive hysterectomies. A hysterectomy is a procedure to remove a woman’s uterus. Traditionally, this surgery involves making a large incision in your lower abdomen. With minimally invasive techniques, the team can perform a hysterectomy through small incisions, resulting in less scarring, pain, and a shorter recovery.
Not every woman needs these services at each visit. Women's Wellness & Healthcare Clinic ensures you know ahead of time what procedures you need and helps you prepare for your appointment.
