Women's Health Services and Gynecology

Women's health services include caring ffor the individual healthcare needs of women-from wellness and preventive care to treatment for medical conditions that are specific to women.

We provide a wide variety of medical services for women, ranging from traditional gynecological exams and services to the treatment of a broad spectrum of women's health problems.

Gynecology Services
All of our providers offer women's health services and can help our female patients maintain optimal health. Below are some of the services we provide specifically to women.

  • Wellness: Women have different medical needs from other patients. Our women's health specialists work closely with female patients to review their medical history and risk factors as it relates to conditions such as breast cancer, heart disease, cervical or ovarian cancer, osteoporosis and other conditions that impact many women. We also perform routine blood tests to ensure you do not have vitamin deficiencies, including vitamin D, calcium, folic acid and iron shortages-a common problem among women.
  • PAP Smear: This annual test can help reduce your risk for cervical cancer and other conditions that could become cancerous. In the event of an abnormal test result, our women's health specialists can provide expert advice on your best treatment options.
  • Breast Exam: Detecting an abnormal lump or mass in your breast before it becomes serious can help save your life. Our team of providers can perform this simple check once a year as part of your routine gynecological exam. We can also refer patients who need a mammogram to the nearby WakeMed North Healthplex imaging services department.
  • Menopause: Our providers can diagnose menopause and work with you to evaluate treatment options as needed. Our women's health specialists can discuss the pros and cons of hormone replacement therapy or alternative therapies, depending on patient preference.
  • Irregular Menstrual Cycles: Our healthcare providers can assist women who experience abnormal periods, such as heavy bleeding or irregular frequency, through diagnosis and a variety of treatment options.
  • Contraception: With the number of contraception medications and devices available, making a decision can be overwhelming. Our physicians can help you understand the benefits and risks associated with each type of treatment and what may work best for your lifestyle. We can also help adjust medications and dosages as needed.
  • Female Infections (bladder, pelvic): Early treatment for any infection is very important and can even help prevent infertility and other gynecological problems. If you have a history of either frequent urinary tract infections or pelvic inflammatory disease, our providers can help ensure you get the gynecological treatment you need quickly to clear up these conditions.

Our providers bring years of experience in women's health services and gynecology. We are proud to care for women of all ages and stages of life.
