Women’s Services We Offer

Take advantage of comprehensive services at Mount Auburn Hospital, including:

  • Breast care
  • Cervical and endometrial biopsies
  • Family planning

  • Gynecologic surgery, including hysterectomy
  • Osteoporosis care and bone density scans

Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery

If you need gynecologic surgery, we’ll explain your options and recommend minimally invasive (laparoscopic) techniques, such as robot-assisted procedures, whenever possible. This approach means you’ll have less pain and scarring, a quicker recovery and reduced risk of complications.

Office-Based Gynecologic Procedures

If an office-based procedure is the best treatment for your condition, you’ll benefit from high quality care that’s more convenient and more cost-effective than surgery in a hospital setting. Ask about:

  • Diagnostic hysteroscopy – Uses a thin, lighted tube to look inside your uterus
  • Endometrial ablation – Removes excess uterine lining to relieve abnormal or heavy bleeding
  • Hysteroscopic sterilization – Permanent nonsurgical birth control

Services for Young Women

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends young women have their first gynecologic visit between 13 and 15 years old. At Mount Auburn Hospital, find trustworthy providers who help teens feel comfortable. Rely on us to sensitively and confidentially address common issues that come with growing up, from menstrual problems to weight concerns to emotional ups and downs.

Menopause Management

Menopause affects each woman differently. Count on your gynecologist to help you manage your symptoms and navigate the wide array of treatment options, including:

  • Homeopathic treatments – Relieve symptoms using pills or solutions made from highly diluted plant and/or mineral substances
  • Lifestyle changes, such as nutrition and physical activity recommendations
  • Medications – Replace hormones or treat symptoms such as depression or high blood pressure
  • Pelvic floor physical therapy – Strengthens pelvic floor muscles
  • Relaxation techniques – Ease symptoms such as hot flashes
