Gynecology Q & A

What gynecology services are available?

Women’s Health Care Center, PLLC, is fully equipped with diagnostic technologies to identify the cause of chronic pain, irregular periods, and other issues unique to women’s health.

The medical staff offers a variety of onsite gynecology services, including:

  • Pelvic exams
  • Breast care
  • STD screenings
  • Menopause care
  • Birth control counseling
  • Laparoscopic surgical procedures

Your Women’s Health Care Center, PLLC, provider can also refer you for routine mammograms, which screen for signs of breast cancer.

Why should I schedule a routine pelvic exam?

A routine pelvic exam should be part of your preventive health care plan. The medical team at Women’s Health Care Center, PLLC, offers in-office pelvic exams to evaluate your reproductive health and identify potential problems, like cervical cancer, in the earliest stages.

Through yearly exams, your Women’s Health Care Center, PLLC, provider can monitor and track any changes in your reproductive and general health. 

You can also take the time to discuss any concerns or questions you have about your sexual health, birth control, or new symptoms you’re experiencing.

During your pelvic exam, your doctor can perform a Pap test to detect issues like infection and cancer. The earlier you begin treatment for these issues, the more successful your outcome. 

Your annual pelvic exam is also an ideal time to undergo STD screenings for conditions like gonorrhea, human papillomavirus (HPV), and herpes.

What are laparoscopic surgeries?

The Women’s Health Care Center, PLLC, staff offers onsite laparoscopic surgical procedures to both diagnose and treat conditions like:

  • Endometriosis
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Tubal Ligations

Your doctor can also recommend a laparoscopy to perform a tubal ligation, a permanent form of birth control, or a hysterectomy.

The benefit of laparoscopic surgery is that the procedure only requires small incisions. Your Women’s Health Care Center, PLLC, provider uses specialized surgical instruments to complete your treatment.

Smaller incisions mean a faster recovery time and less risk for infections and scars. Your gynecologist can also perform complex surgeries, like hysterectomies, with more precision using laparoscopic techniques.
