If you are in need of general or specific information regarding any of the services listed above or anything else related to women’s health, do not hesitate to ask the healthcare experts at our OBGYN.
If you have urinary incontinence, there is no reason to be shy. Let a healthcare professional at our OBGYN know about the problem so that we can analyze your medical history and symptoms. Aggravating and relieving factors will be reviewed. A urinalysis and culture will likely be conducted. A physical exam including a pelvic muscle assessment will help pinpoint the underlying causes of the incontinence.
If necessary, surgery will be performed to rectify the problem. It is possible that you are suffering from severe vaginitis, dermatitis, atrophy of the vulva, a uterine prolapse or a urethral diverticulum. Perhaps you will benefit from physical therapy, lifestyle alterations or other changes.
If you believe you have an infection, do not panic. There are numerous treatment options available at our OBGYN for female infections.

Heavy menstrual bleeding is not something to ignore or continue struggling on a regular basis. something you should have to live with just because you are a woman. Treatments like endometrial ablation are available at our OBGYN. Such heavy bleeding typically occurs during periods when women reach their 30s and 40s or when approaching menopause. Signs of abnormally heavy bleeding include having to change one’s tampon every hour during the day, getting up in the middle of the night to change pads, missing time at work and skipping activities/hobbies due to bleeding concerns.
About 20 percent of women endure heavy menstrual bleeding at some point in life. Such bleeding can lead to a loss of iron and the development of anemia. Furthermore, heavy bleeding is frustrating. Taking control of this problems starts with a visit to our OBGYN. It is possible you have a hormone imbalance, are not ovulating each month, have an abnormal growth in your uterus or have uterine fibroids. We must conduct the tests to determine the true problem. Medication has the potential to solve the problem yet a surgical procedure might be necessary.

Our OBGYN healthcare providers are trained to counsel women about treatment options including dietary changes, herbal remedies, natural remedies, bio-identical hormones, exercise and hormone replacement therapy options.
Fibroids are the most common tumors in the female reproductive system. They are compact and firm tumors comprised of fibrous connective tissue and muscle cells that develop within the uterus. Fibroids are as large as a softball or as small as an orange. Over 99 percent of fibroids are benign. If the fibroids are large or cause severe symptoms, treatment will be necessary. Treatment options include anti-inflammatory painkillers, a hysterectomy in which we surgically remove the uterus, conservative surgical therapy to leave the uterus intact but remove the fibroids, anti-hormonal agents and GnRH agonists to reduce estrogen levels and shrink the fibroids.
Our OBGYN conducts Pap smear screening tests to detect precancerous or cancerous changes within the cervix. The cells that make up the cervix are naturally shed. They are gathered during the Pap smear and analyzed under a microscope for abnormalities. Every woman who is 18 years of age or older or sexually active should have a yearly PAP smear performed at our OBGYN.
