Gynecology care across the lifespan
Women of all ages—beginning in the teen years,—need regular gynecological care. Our experts in obstetrics and gynecology provide care for women throughout their lives. We offer:
- Well-woman exams. All women need regular exams as part of their reproductive healthcare. Some, though not all, of these checkups may include a Pap test to screen for cervical cancer or precancerous changes.
- Health counseling. Our experts can give you advice you can trust on important topics, such as the HPV virus and other sexually transmitted infections. They can also help you deal with discomfort or other symptoms you're having. Here's a tip: Write down your most important questions to bring to your visit.
- Family planning. Our providers can advise you on the different birth control options available and what works best with your lifestyle. Thinking of having children? Let us help you plan a healthy pregnancy.
- Menopause guidance. Are you experiencing symptoms such as hot flashes? Your provider can help you understand menopause treatments to relieve your symptoms and the benefits versus risks.
- Care for common conditions. Our women's healthcare team can help with conditions that affect women of all ages—from heavy, painful menstrual periods to urinary incontinence that occurs when you laugh or sneeze.
- Minimally invasive gynecological treatments. At Claxton-Hepburn, we offer a variety of surgical treatment options, depending on your condition, including endometrial ablation and minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures. Your doctor will help you choose the safest and best option.
We also provide specialized women's services, including breast cancer screenings and treatment, mammography, and bone health screening.
