Individualized care

Women in many different stages of life and for many different reasons require gynecologic surgical procedures. Our team strives to provide comprehensive, thorough care—regardless of which surgery you are having. Whether you are undergoing an emergency procedure or an elective hysterectomy, rest assured that her skill and compassion will make your surgical experience a positive one.

We offer patients the information they need to make positive choices. The more a woman knows about the upcoming procedure, the better she can prepare herself. We provide a thorough overview before any gynecologic surgery, including what you can expect before, during and after the surgery.

Contraception

Our providers offer a variety of choices for women who are exploring different options to avoid pregnancy.

Urinary incontinence

Up to 11 million women suffer from incontinence in the U.S. According to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, incontinence is most common in women over age 64. However, 1 in 4 women between ages 30 and 59 have experienced urinary leakage. Many women never receive treatment because they are embarrassed to discuss the problem with their physician. There are medical and surgical treatments to help relieve this problem. Dr. Ian Stormont, Urologist, is happy to discuss these options with patients so they understand they do not need to live with this uncomfortable issue.

Perimenopause/menopause

Women who experience anxiety, depression, mood swings, hot flashes, insomnia, irregular cycles and abnormal bleeding may be at a stage in life when they require medical attention to alleviate these symptoms. Our providers can assist patients through these difficult issues.
