Adolescent Gynecology and Counseling
Well-woman exams are a key component of gynecologic care. With a focus on prevention, yearly exams allow for early detection of chronic medical problems, as well as screening for asymptomatic infections or abnormal cell growths that can lead to cancer. Annual exams are recommended for all women over the age of 18 or those who are sexually active. This visit may include “Pap smears” and a pelvic exam to help identify abnormalities of the reproductive organs.
We offer women and families birth-control methods, depending on their needs and taking into consideration lifestyle, current health, and any previous experience with birth control they may have had. We provide you with knowledge and recommendations but ultimately leave decision-making up to you and your family. We assist with making the best choice for your needs.
Hormonal changes associated with menopause and perimenopause can cause symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, vaginal dryness, mood swings, and decreased libido. Our providers specialize in a complete approach to healthier aging through patient-specific hormone replacement therapy when indicated.
Surgical and Outpatient Office Procedures
Some of the complex gynecological surgeries we perform once required long recovery times and hospital stays, as well as large scars due to the incisions. Today the doctors at Beaches OBGYN are highly experienced in performing minimally invasive procedures with the help of laparoscopic tools and robotic assistance. These advances allow our doctors to perform the procedure through tiny incisions that result in less pain, less scarring, and faster recovery.
