Our women's care services include:

Breast health services

Maternity care

Our team of prenatal care experts is dedicated to helping women throughout their pregnancy—from prenatal to postpartum care. We offer pregnancy support, routine checkups, childbirth education classes and more, to ensure expectant mothers feel prepared for giving birth.

Menopause management

Menopause is a time in which a woman's ovaries stop producing hormones. This causes menstruation to stop, which can lead to a variety of symptoms that can cause discomfort for women—from hot flashes to mood swings. Our team is dedicated to helping women navigate menopause and ensure all of their questions are answered.

Minimally invasive and robotic surgery

Should the need for advanced treatment arise, our specialized team is experienced in performing surgery for conditions related to women's care, such as cervical or ovarian cancer. When possible, our surgeons use minimally invasive methods, including robot-assisted surgery, to reduce the incision size, scarring and recovery time for patients.

Preventive women's care

In addition to providing you the best possible treatment, our team is also focused on ensuring that you are as well educated as possible about your condition and the choices available to you. Our team believes in taking the time to provide you with information about preventive care that allows you to take an active role in making knowledgeable healthcare decisions.

Well women's exams

A well women's exam helps doctors determine overall health and check for common women's health conditions. During a well women's exam, doctors will conduct the following:

  • Breast health exam—A breast health exam includes a visual breast examination and breast palpitation.
  • Pelvic exam—A pelvic exam includes an internal and external examination of the female reproductive organs.
  • Pap smear—A pap smear is a screening test to determine the presence of any abnormalities of the vagina.

As a general rule, it is recommended women receive a well women's exam each year.
