Well Woman Examinations are a proactive way for you and your doctor to maintain your good health by identifying risk factors, discussing lifestyle choices, and catching potential problems before they become serious issues. You can expect to talk about contraception and sexual health, receive age, or circumstance-appropriate physical exams and tests, and talk with your physician about anything that concerns you. And you can be sure we use the most advanced assessment techniques to optimize the accuracy of your tests.
Gynecological Care encompasses everything from routine examinations and pap smears to contraceptive counseling and help with problematic issues, such as abnormal uterine bleeding. For your comfort and convenience, we often perform state-of-the-art procedures right in the office in order to evaluate and treat certain conditions.
When you're planning to become pregnant, Pre-conception Care will help you identify conditions that may affect the course of a future pregnancy or the health of a fetus. Often, such conditions respond to intervention, enhancing your odds of a healthy pregnancy, delivery, and baby
Partners in Women’s Health offers prenatal and postnatal care that nurtures the well-being of both you and your child. Since your physical and psychological health directly affects your baby, your doctor will continually assess your condition during your pregnancy. You'll be screened for disease, high-risk conditions, and other issues, and your emotional status will be monitored. Together, you and your doctor can make adjustments or take action as needed to ensure your health and the health of your baby.
It's a fact: women who receive early and regular prenatal care are more likely to have healthier babies. If your doctor identifies yours as a high-risk pregnancy, it's even more critical that you get regular, specialized care. In addition to careful monitoring to catch issues before they become problems, your doctor may recommend counseling in nutrition, exercise, stress management and other topics. And if after the birth you or your baby requires specialized care, your physician will help you learn to attend to your own needs while you attend to the needs of your newborn.
There's a lot you and your doctor can do to promote a long, healthy, and happy life. Troublesome symptoms such as hot flashes and night sweats can be improved in a variety of ways. Heart disease and osteoporosis risks can be assessed and addressed. Preventive nutrition is actively promoted. A personalized evaluation of the benefits and risks of hormone replacement therapy will help you and your physician make well-informed decisions about what's best for you.
Operative gynecologic laparoscopy has become the accepted modality for treatment of various abdominal and pelvic pathologies. During the past several years, enormous technical advances have taken place to make this procedure practical, safe and economical.
While the patient is deep asleep and pain-free under general anesthesia, a one-half-inch incision is made in the skin below the navel (umbilicus). Carbon dioxide is pumped into the abdomen to make the organs of the abdominal cavity more easily visible.
The laparoscope, an instrument similar to a small telescope on a flexible tube, is inserted so the area can be viewed. Other instruments may be inserted through other incisions in the lower abdomen to obtain tissue samples or perform additional procedures. After the laparoscopy, the carbon dioxide gas is released, and the incisions are stitched. Pelvic laparoscopy is used both for diagnosis and for treatment.
Bone Density (DEXA) is one of the safest, most accurate, and most common ways to measure BMD (bone mineral density). Since you can't see or feel bone loss, the DEXA test tells your doctor if you have osteoporosis or may be at risk of developing it. Physicians will consult with you and discuss recommendations and treatment options following your study.
