gyn health

A woman’s journey in life is exciting, challenging, and full of surprises. Bon Secours Virginia’s goal is to support and guide you along the way. We want you to discuss health care options openly with your gynecologist and to make choices that suit you. Our physicians, certified nurse-midwives, nurses, physician assistants, and office staff understand women’s needs and always are ready to listen and help.

We’re here for you during this exciting -- and sometimes challenging -- stage of life. We offer seminars and support groups that provide information on discussion on issues that interest you.

Topics addressed include:

  • Bone health and bone scanning;
  • Heart health;
  • Incontinence;
  • Sexual dysfunction and loss of libido; and
  • Hormone-replacement therapy.

Screening also is a crucial part of your health care plan. Depending on your experiences and family history, your physician may suggest increased screening for conditions, like cancer, pelvic floor disorders, and osteoporosis.

Cancer screening typically focuses on cervical, uterine, and ovarian malignancies.  If an abnormality is found, our world-class gynecologic oncology specialists will ensure your needs are met. Located on an all-women’s floor, the Women’s Surgical Unit will welcome you and your family members into a warm and caring environment. Our surgeons often treat highly complex cases and always operate in teams. They are skilled in many cancer-oriented procedures, including advanced laparoscopic surgery. Supplementary radiation and/or chemotherapy -- systemic or intraperitoneal -- are often prescribed before or after these procedures.

Osteoporosis is the progressive weakening of bone density. It is common with aging and raises the risk for fractures. Screening for this condition is a critical part of post-menopausal health. We offer several options and can work with you to determine the best treatment plan, too.

Our staff always is available to you.  Please call us for advice or information.
