Obstetrics and Gynecology
Puberty, pregnancy and menopause: A woman's body goes through rapid changes as she ages. And at each phase of a woman's life, she may have questions or concerns about her health.
An obstetrician, gynecologist or OB/GYN can answer those questions and ease transitions. At Lake Regional Health System, we have a team of these professionals ready to help.
Routine Gynecological Services
Annual exams help our doctors to spot health issues early, before they have a chance to impact your life. We know these exams are important—and we also know that few women look forward to their appointments.
Our providers understand the discomfort that can come with a routine screening. Before your exam, your doctor will explain all of the steps to you in words you can understand. And we'll get the results to you quickly—so you won't have to wait and worry.
In addition to gynecological cancer screenings, our doctors can offer you:
- Contraception counseling
- Pregnancy planning help
- Peri- and post-menopausal care
- Breast exams
Advanced Gynecological Care
In addition to routine cancer screenings, our doctors offer diagnosis and therapies for other gynecological issues, including incontinence, pelvic pain and unusual bleeding. We offer gynecological surgeries, including endometrial ablation and laparoscopic hysterectomy. Medication management and nonsurgical therapies, such as bladder training and pelvic floor exercises, are available too.
Expert Pregnancy Support
When you're ready to add to your family, we're here to help. Our doctors can help to confirm your pregnancy and offer advice on sleep, nutrition, stress and more. If you have questions during your pregnancy, your doctor will be there to talk with you and offer support. And when it's time to deliver your baby, you'll head to our new Family Birth Center, where our team will meet with you and help introduce your baby to the world.
