What is Women’s Health?
Women have unique health care needs, which is why seeing a women’s health specialist is crucial to optimize wellness and prevent disease and its complications.
Common women’s health conditions the experienced OB/GYN team at Women’s Health Care Specialists screen for, diagnose, and treat include:
- Pregnancy and breastfeeding
- Menopause symptoms
- Breast cancer
- Cervical cancer
- Sexually transmitted diseases
- Vaginal atrophy
- Urinary incontinence
- Depression and anxiety
Gynecological conditions Dr. Modi and her team monitor or treat include endometriosis, infertility, pelvic pain, uterine fibroids, preterm labor, heavy menstrual bleeding, and much more.
What should I expect during my appointment?
During a women’s health exam at Women’s Health Care Specialists, your provider checks your blood pressure and other vitals. Dr. Modi reviews your medical history and completes a comprehensive physical exam to detect or rule out health problems.
She may complete a Pap test, or Pap smear, to screen for cervical cancer. Dr. Modi inserts a speculum into your vagina, takes a sample of cervical cells, and sends the cells to a lab for analysis.
She might recommend a mammogram to screen for breast cancer, a colonoscopy to screen for colon cancer, and blood or urine tests to detect signs of a gynecological condition. Dr. Modi answers any questions you may have about women’s health.
Which treatment might I require?
If you require or choose women’s health treatment, your personalized plan is based on your individual needs. It might include:
- Lifestyle changes, including diet and exercise
- Hormone replacement therapy
- Minimally invasive surgery
- Vaginal revitalization with TempSure™ Vitalia
- Fertility treatment
- Da Vinci robotic hysterectomy
- Medical weight loss
- Optional anti-aging aesthetics treatments
If you have uterine fibroids, pelvic pain, heavy menstrual bleeding, endometriosis, or another gynecological condition requiring minimally invasive surgery, Dr. Modi and her team can help. She uses the state-of-the-art da Vinci robotics system for better precision and accuracy.
