Gynecology

Our providers are well-versed in care for women through all life stages. We endeavor to provide the most beneficial and appropriate care available.

Our care is provided by three nurse practitioners, three gynecologists and three obstetrician/gynecologists.

 

Obstetrics

Prenatal health is an essential concern prior to the need for obstetrical services. Our providers endeavor to assist patients in being prepared both physically and emotionally for pregnancy. In this effort, we may encourage a better diet, better control of medical conditions such as diabetes and hypertension. We will encourage evaluation of the need for vaccinations and vitamins prior to pregnancy.

Vaccines

We offer many types of vaccines protecting against human papilloma virus (HPV), flu, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis, measles, mumps and rubella. We also provide vaccine to patients in need of protection from shingles.

 

Surgeries

Our surgeons are qualified and experienced in providing surgeries for nonmalignant gynecological problems. We strive to provide the least invasive, most convenient surgeries that meet the patients' needs. We are providing many out-patient surgeries that previously required overnight stays. On major cases, we endeavor to provide the most appropriate surgery many of which only require an overnight stay.

Our surgeries include surgeries for incontinence, uterine and vaginal surgeries. When a malignancy is identified, we refer these to gynecological oncology specialists.

We now offer Da Vinci Robotic surgery.

Urodynamics

Urodynamic testing is a procedure that looks at how well the bladder, sphincters and urethra are storing and releasing urine. Most urodynamic tests focus on the bladder's ability to hold urine and to voluntarily empty steadily and completely. Urodynamic tests can also show whether the bladder is having involuntary contractions that cause urine leakage.

Some symptoms suggesting need for urodynamic testing may include:

  • Urine leakage
  • Frequent urination
  • Painful urination
  • Problems starting a urine stream
  • Problems emptying the bladder completely
  • Recurrent urinary tract infections

 

Ultrasounds

Ultrasounds are performed by using high frequency sound waves which are reflected off organs and are recorded. We offer obstetrical and 4-D as well as gynecological ultrasounds.

We are proud to offer 4-D ultrasound services to our patients and non-patients. Ultrasound must be paid for prior to service. Please call our office for pricing. 4-D ultrasounds are recorded onto a CD that we provide.

Information to patients concerning Ultrasound

 

Mammography

Mammograms are used to diagnose breast problems. Self breast examinations and breast checks from your provider are two of the best ways to detect breast cancer.

The American Congress of Obstetrics & Gynecology recommends screenings start at the age of 40 (unless advised otherwise by your provider). Afterwards, yearly mammograms are recommended.

Do not wear powders, lotions or deodorants when having a mammogram. These products could show a suspicious area when the mammogram is being interpreted. OBGYN provides deodorant to be used after your mammogram.
