Gynecology in South Florida

A gynecologist is one of the most important specialists in a woman’s life. The transition from teenager to adult is filled with many changes and discoveries about your growing body. A gynecologist can help you navigate through a time of change, and provide life-saving preventative care as well as long-term treatments for discomfort related to your reproductive system.

What is Gynecology?

Gynecology is defined as the area of medicine involving treatment for women’s diseases, especially those of the reproductive organs. Diseases involving a woman’s reproductive organs include endometriosis, ovarian cancer, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), and many more. Gynecologists do not work with any practices involving pregnancy or childbirth, but many gynecologists are also obstetricians.

Often, women see providers that are both gynecologists and obstetricians, making it easier for women to see the same doctor for years. An OB/GYN can be there for you, monitoring your reproductive health from the time you first begin having sex to the the moment you have your first child. Having the same practitioner for years can help you get more accurate diagnoses long-term, and thus better treatment.

Your Wellness Is Of The Utmost Importance To Us

Many women also choose to visit their gynecologist if they are interested in birth control, if they have menstruation issues, or if they are struggling with the symptoms of menopause. Even if you do not have these concerns, seeing a gynecologist is key to preventing reproductive cancers, as gynecologists can administer the proper cancer screenings to you annually.

What Does Gynecology Treat?

Regular gynecological exams are essential for a woman’s health. Gynecologists perform standard examinations, such as Pap smears and pelvic exams. They may also be seen for diagnosis and treatment of a variety of conditions, including:

  • Cancer of the ovaries, uterus, cervix, vagina, or fallopian tubes
  • Prolapse: a condition in which the pelvic organs slip forward or downward within the body, often after menopause in women
  • Yeast or bacterial infections
  • Painful intercourse
  • Irregular menstruation or pain during menstruation.
  • Other menopause-related diseases
  • Endometriosis: a painful condition in which uterine tissue grows outside the uterus
  • Cervical and vaginal polyps
  • Fibroids: compact tumors that develop in the uterus
  • Ovarian cysts

In addition, a gynecologist can perform surgical procedures on reproductive organs for several reasons, including medical conditions, permanently preventing pregnancy, and even for cosmetic reasons. Some of the most common procedures include:

  • Hysterectomy: Removal of the uterus
  • Oophorectomy: Removal of the ovaries
  • Salpingectomy: Removal of the fallopian tubes
  • Tubal ligation: Permanent birth control surgery
  • Cone biopsy: Removal of precancerous cells from the cervix after a Pap test
  • Labiaplasty: Surgical reshaping of external genitalia

Many practices choose to combine the obstetrician and gynecologist specialties to provide more comprehensive women’s care. Both gynecologists and obstetricians complete four years of medical school and a four-year residency program in which they learn about pregnancy, fertility, genetics, adolescent gynecological care, and adult gynecological care.
