Do you need an annual gynecologic check-up? Is it time for your Pap test? Or has your doctor told you that you need specialized gynecologic care available only in a hospital? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then it may be time to make an appointment with a gynecologist at NewYork-Presbyterian. Our gynecology care includes:
A Team of Experts
Your treatment team includes board-certified gynecologists who work with nurses, genetic counselors, and other professionals to provide the care you need. We are a teaching hospital, meaning we are up-to-date on the most sophisticated methods for diagnosing and treating disorders of the cervix, vagina, vulva, uterus, ovaries, and fallopian tubes, as well as urologic disorders. And because we are part of a world-renowned academic medical center, we can meet all of your other healthcare needs as well, such as heart disease, diabetes, and hormonal problems.
Treatment for All Conditions
In addition to providing preventive care, we treat abnormal vaginal bleeding, cervical disease, congenital abnormalities, cysts, incontinence, pelvic floor problems, and uterine fibroids. We offer special programs for women going through menopause, those with endometriosis or infertility, and those seeking help for issues related to sexual health.
Minimally Invasive Surgery
If you need surgery, first we'll see if you can have minimally invasive surgery, using laparoscopy and robotic surgery as needed. Compared with traditional "open" surgery, you'll have less blood loss, a shorter hospital stay, smaller incisions and scars, less pain after surgery, and a speedier recovery and return to your normal activities. We use minimally invasive surgery to treat endometriosis and can treat uterine prolapse through the vagina, with no abdominal incisions. Some women with uterine fibroids, pelvic pain, or endometriosis benefit from single-port surgery, in which we perform the entire operation through one incision (typically in the belly button).
Conservative Treatment of Uterine Fibroids
If you have uterine fibroids, we can often treat them using therapies that spare your uterus and avoid the need for hysterectomy, such as uterine fibroid embolization (performed working with our interventional radiologists). We also use medication and minimally invasive surgery as needed in some patients.
Family Planning Services
We offer a full range of family planning services in a nonjudgmental, caring, and supportive environment. We provide education, access to contraception, and counseling to prevent unplanned pregnancies.
A Variety of Locations
From uptown to downtown and at multiple places in between, you can access our gynecologic care at several convenient locations, so you can schedule appointments close to where you live or work. You'll receive personalized care in a compassionate, comfortable setting.
