The gynecology team provides routine wellness exams and preventive screenings that help identify in the earliest stages potential reproductive health issues like infections and cancerous changes.

Minimally invasive procedures and surgery

Colposcopy services are available on-site to evaluate changes in your cervix that may indicate the presence of cancer. The team also offers the loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP) to remove abnormal or cancerous cervical cells.

For the treatment of underlying gynecologic issues and for aesthetic purposes, McDowell Mountain Gynecology offers nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation.

Other minimally invasive procedures available include hysteroscopy, endometrial ablation, and da Vinci robotic laparoscopic surgery.

What can I expect during a gynecology visit?

During your initial evaluation, the McDowell Mountain Gynecology team takes time to review your personal and family medical history and your existing health. They also discuss your lifestyle and job to get a better understanding of your needs.

Your evaluation includes a pelvic exam, a manual evaluation of your inner reproductive system to check for abnormalities. You may also need a Pap smear to identify cell changes that may increase your risk for cancer. The providers also offer manual breast exams to check for lumps and ensure your breasts are healthy.

If you have any new symptoms, your McDowell Mountain Gynecology provider evaluates them and can determine if you need additional tests or treatment. If you have existing health issues and are receiving treatment, your provider ensures it’s working well for you and makes changes if necessary.
