Menopause is a natural phase of life, but it can significantly impact your health and well-being. At NewYork-Presbyterian, our experienced and compassionate gynecologists provide the highest level of care through every phase of life, including the years before, during, and following menopause.
Why Choose Us
The complex nature of menopause and its related conditions requires a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach to each patient’s care. At NewYork-Presbyterian, our gynecologists are North American Menopause Society Certified Menopause Practitioners, which means they are focused on preventive care and patient education to help you achieve optimum health and well-being.
We work closely with each patient to develop a personalized treatment plan that minimizes the symptoms and discomfort of menopause and helps improve overall health. Our gynecologists collaborate with specialists in cardiology, endocrinology, psychiatry, neurology, sleep medicine, acupuncture, and nutrition to provide coordinated care that addresses an individual’s needs and risks for disease. Through NewYork-Presbyterian’s extensive network of resources and support services, we can help you navigate the many challenges of menopause.
Our Approach to Care
Since menopause affects everyone differently, it’s important to receive care from an experienced gynecologist committed to understanding and improving your symptoms and protecting you against the health risks of menopause and the aging process.
Our gynecologists will sit down with you to learn your comprehensive medical history, discuss any menopause symptoms you may have, and learn about your lifestyle habits such as diet and nutrition, physical activity, and stress levels. This helps us to develop a personalized treatment plan that works for you.
Personalized and holistic care to address your unique needs
Just as every patient is unique, so is their experience with menopause and the aging process. We take a personalized, holistic approach to menopause care in which we strive to understand each patient as a whole person, including their physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs. We proactively address your comprehensive needs through careful listening and open discussions as you transition through the menopausal years. Some of the issues may include:
- Weight changes and nutrition
- Heart health
- Brain health (memory and cognition)
- Bone health and osteoporosis
- Mental health
Advancing the field through research
In addition to providing world-class care, our gynecologists conduct innovative research to better understand menopause and its symptoms. Our clinician-investigators continue to pursue studies of new therapies. Our patients benefit from treatments and therapies based on the most up-to-date research and findings.
