Well Woman Care

Most patients can receive routine well woman care, including pap smears for cervical cancer screening, with one of our family medicine physicians or nurse practitioners as part of a single convenient primary care visit. In some instances, you may prefer that your routine gynecologic care is done by a gynecologist. In this case, you may schedule that if you prefer. 

Nonsurgical and Surgical Options

We can provide you with outpatient care, both nonsurgical and minor surgical including IUD and implant placement and removal, colposcopy, and LEEP procedures. Depending on your personal history and symptoms, your team may recommend a minimally invasive surgery to address your individual condition. Many of the gynecologic surgeries performed at Lakes Regional Healthcare are now done robotically with our da Vinci robot. This robot allows surgeons to make just a few small incisions and perform procedures using a high level of magnification and a camera to guide tiny “robotic” arms that perform the physical aspect of the surgery. It results in shorter hospital stays, less postoperative pain, fewer complications, and quicker recovery and return to work times for our patients.
