Nobody expects to get a serious gynecological condition. But if you do, you can receive expert care from Group Health Medical Centers' team of urogynecologists, pelvic surgeons, gynecologic oncology surgeons, and advanced vaginal surgeons.
All of these physicians are skilled in the latest nonsurgical and surgical techniques, including robotic gynecologic surgery, laser surgery, and minimally invasive surgery. They'll work closely with you, discussing all your options and coordinating care with other specialists as needed.
Our urogynecologists are specially trained in the treatment of pelvic floor disorders, including urinary incontinence, bowel control problems, overactive bladder, and pelvic organ prolapse. Our gynecologic oncology surgeons offer expertise in both gynecology and oncology. And our vaginal surgeons are highly skilled in performing minimally invasive abdominal surgery.
Shared decision-making tools at Group Health Medical Centers can help you become better informed about your surgical options so you can participate in choosing the treatment that's right for you.
Extensive fertility care. Through education and counseling, you'll learn about fertility awareness, and how to prepare for a pregnancy that supports the health of both you and your baby. This includes immunizations such as the HPV vaccination that can reduce risk of cervical and gynecologic cancer.
Tubal ligation. This permanent birth control method, performed in your doctor's office, is a nonsurgical procedure. Tubal implants such as Essure are placed in each fallopian tube, blocking the tubes.
Reconstructive pelvic surgery. This is the placement of mesh pelvic support to treat pelvic floor disorders. Depending on your individual needs, this surgical procedure may be performed laparoscopically or robotically. Your surgeon will discuss which option is best for you.
Vaginal support pessary: A vaginal pessary is a removable device that is placed into the vagina to support areas of pelvic organ prolapse. Insertion is a nonsurgical procedure that's done in a doctor's office.
