Day-to-day stresses and life events can affect a woman’s health from adolescence through menopause. It’s important to know your body and keep close tabs on how and why it changes through all stages of life. It’s also important to be
open with your gynecologist or obstetrician about symptoms, like pelvic pain or breast changes, that may arise.
Maintaining regular check-ups is key to detecting diseases early, and at Brookwood Baptist Medical Center, you will find a gynecological team that will be on your side through every step of your life’s journey.
Putting Your Health First
With kids, grandkids, work, errands and more, daily life will often take priority over taking care of yourself. But it should be stressed that keeping to your exams—like breast exams, mammograms, pap tests and other tests—will go a long way
in keeping you healthy enough to enjoy the things you love most. Our dedicated team in the Women’s Medical Center at Brookwood is here to treat everything from annual gynecology exams or periodic screenings to minimally invasive surgeries.
Our specialists treat a variety of women’s health issues, both surgical and nonsurgical. Some of the services we provide include birth control/contraception, HPV counseling and vaccination, hysterectomies, pregnancy testing and counseling, gynecologic
surgery and more.
Supporting minimally invasive techniques, our gynecological team uses surgeon-controlled robotic equipment for certain procedures, which may result in a shorter hospital stay and a lessened need for pain medication.
Conditions We Treat
We understand that every woman is different. Every body works its own way. And we strive to create a treatment plan that’s tailored to your individualized needs. It’s a comprehensive approach of skill, compassion and relatability that our
specialists bring to women’s health care.
This type of cyst occurs when the duct of the Bartholin's gland becomes blocked, resulting in the development of a fluid-filled cyst. The Bartholin's glands are a pair of glands between the vagina and the vulva that produce lubrication when they are stimulated.
This condition is the abnormal growth of cells on the cervix's surface. Considered a precancerous condition, it is typically the result of a sexually transmitted infection with the Human Papillomavirus, or HPV.
Also referred as a cervical insufficiency, this is a condition that occurs when weak cervical tissue causes or contributes to premature birth or possibly loss of the fetus in an otherwise uncomplicated pregnancy.
This condition is a rare ovarian tumor characterized by the presence of thyroid tissue that comprises more than 50 percent of the tumor’s overall mass. The tumor can be benign or malignant and is often treated with surgery.
A biopsy is the removal of a small piece of the cervix tissue, which then is tested in the lab for signs of disease or infection. Doctors typically order a biopsy when another medical test suggests that the body tissue is not normal.
Colposcopy is a procedure used to examine the vulva, cervix and vagina for signs of disease. Often ordered after an abnormal pap test, tissue is collected from the cervix and sent for laboratory testing.
A pap test is performed during a pelvic exam. A physician inserts a speculum into the opening of the vagina in order to examine the cervix and vagina. The cervix is then swabbed in order to test for cancer cells.
This surgical procedure uses a small, lighted tube placed near the female reproductive organs through an incision in the abdomen. Laparoscopy can be used to find cysts, fibroids and infections. Tissue can also be biopsied during the procedure.
