Gynecology in Downtown Doral and South Miami, FL

A gynecologist is a doctor trained to specialize in all aspects of a woman’s health, from adolescence to menopause and beyond. Most gynecologists offer gynecologic (GYN) and obstetrician (OB) services to provide you with continuity of care before, during, and after pregnancy.

Choosing a gynecologist is such a personal decision. Some women prefer to have a female GYN. Others prefer males.

At South Miami OB-GYN Associates, we have both male and female physicians and nurse practitioners who are trained to provide a complete array of obstetrics and gynecology services, both surgical and non-surgical. Our goal is to provide ongoing preventative care, accurately identify your GYN issues, educate you on treatment options, and then design a personalized treatment plan.

When Should You See a Gynecologist for the First Time?

According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), your first visit to your GYN should be between the ages of 13 and 15 or whenever you become sexually active. Annual visits begin at age 21. We highly recommend that women establish a relationship with a gynecologist early in their reproductive years so they can receive appropriate care and guidance as they navigate their sexual and reproductive health.

During Your First Gynecologist Visit

It’s completely normal to feel anxious about your first visit. Preparing for the visit by writing down any symptoms or any questions you have can help maximize the experience and reduce your apprehension.

Here is an overview of what you can expect on your first GYN visit:

  1.  Medical history: The visit always begins with a conversation. It’s an opportune time to share your family history as well as your personal and sexual background. By sharing information, you are setting the stage for a long-term relationship.
  2. Physical exam: It all depends on your age and the reason for your visit. A breast and pelvic exam are generally part of your annual visit as you get older.
  3. Discussion of test results: After the examination, your gynecologist will share their findings and make recommendations. If you had a lab test or pap smear, your results will be shared via the secure patient portal.
  4. Education and counseling: A visit with your gynecologist is an opportunity to ask questions and seek information regarding birth control, sexual health, menstrual issues or risk factors, and any general medical concerns. Open communication is key and will allow your provider to guide you effectively through your reproductive health journey.

Robotic- Assisted Gynecological Surgery

Minimally invasive surgical procedures avoid open invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery with less trauma. These procedures can often be done vaginally or involve use of laparoscopic instruments. Laparoscopy allows observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device, and is carried out through small incisions in the skin to allow access into the pelvis or abdomen. This may result in shorter hospital stays, or allow outpatient treatment.

Minimally invasive surgery should have less operative trauma for the patient than an equivalent invasive procedure. Hospitalization time is shorter and the procedure causes less pain and scarring and reduces the incidence of post-surgical complications, such adhesions. Many laparoscopic procedures are considered to be relatively painless and, at worst, associated with mild discomfort. Complications are not common (only 5% of all operations).
