Well-woman care is a major key to gynecological health management and disease detection and prevention. Your annual well-woman exam is an excellent opportunity for us to screen you for potential reproductive-health problems, to answer your questions and to discuss your concerns.
The well-woman exam typically includes:

We are sensitive to a young woman’s health issues and concerns - and we take the time to listen. Many young women have special needs and concerns about changes in their bodies. We provide the sort of one-on-one care that allows you to feel comfortable talking about your health. We provide initial and annual exams.
Gynecological issues that face young women can include:
Minimally Invasive Surgery
Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery:
This involves minimally invasive surgery to achieve rapid post-operative recovery with minimal pain and improved cosmetic outcome. Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery offers a wide range of minimally invasive and laparoscopic surgical procedures. These advanced surgeries allow patients the advantage of less pain and quicker recovery. Most patients get back to work within two weeks, compared to the two-to-three-month recovery time associated with traditional surgery. We can also treat a variety of conditions in outpatient procedures with minimal pain and minimal disruption - avoiding costly hospital stays. This surgery is used to treat conditions such as excessive bleeding, pelvic masses, gynecological cancers, and infertility.
Robotically Assisted Surgery:
This is another minimally invasive option for women facing gynecologic surgery. This surgery requires the surgeon to make only a few small incisions - similar to traditional laparoscopy. Using a magnified 3D, high-definition vision system and special wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist, surgeons can operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control. Robotically Assisted Surgery allows complicated conditions to be treated with minimally invasive techniques rather than the traditional, large-open surgery. These surgeries also eliminate human tremors, providing the most precise surgery possible while offering a 3D view of the pelvic area. This surgery is often used to treat conditions such as uterine fibroids, gynecological conditions, urinary incontinence, pelvic prolapse and endometriosis.
