When most women think of an “OBGYN,” they tend to associate that acronym with “the doctor they see for their annual mammogram/pap smear” and/or their “baby doctor.” But what a lot of women don’t realize is that the physicians at Advanced Women’s Healthcare offer so much more than what those initial thoughts suggest.
Advanced Women’s Healthcare offers treatment options and solutions for a variety of feminine healthcare needs. They have experience with high risk pregnancies related to advanced maternal age, women carrying multiple babies simultaneously, and previously existing medical conditions. Advanced Women’s Healthcare also offers the option to view your sonogram in 4-D, and even get a discount off the service by sharing your experience via a public review website!
For those women struggling with fertility, Advanced Women’s Healthcare offers a customized treatment plan to determine what conditions may be preventing you and your partner from achieving a healthy pregnancy. Dr. Michelle Heintges, of Advanced Women’s Healthcare, will help you monitor your ovulation using a tracking calendar and discuss how your current medication usage may also be affecting your chance of conception. She will help you analyze what conditions could be affecting your hormone levels or if there are any underlying diseases that need to be addressed.
If you have moved past the “having babies” stage of your life, Advanced Women’s Healthcare offers solutions to issues you may face after having children. Some women are likely to have issues related to the muscles located within their pelvic floor. These muscles are responsible for controlling urination, defecation, and intercourse, and can sometimes weaken after childbirth, with age, disease, or disuse. Dr. Heintges has a special interest in this area and will help design a personalized program to help women regain bladder control and strengthen their pelvic floor muscles. After taking initial measurements and designing a treatment plan, Dr. Heintges recommends a series of 6-8 follow-up visits about 30 minutes each.
Anytime surgeries need to be performed, Advanced Women’s Healthcare strives to offer minimally invasive surgery where possible. They use a Da Vinci robotic surgical system, which is used to treat cervical and uterine cancer, endometriosis, menorrhagia, and uterine fibroids, among other diagnoses. This robotic equipment works by making 1-2 cm incisions that operate with significant precision and minimal pain and risk for the patient. Advanced Women’s Healthcare also provides the option of having a hysterectomy performed using the same robotic technology. They go through your belly button and it is a virtually scar-less procedure. Hysterectomies can also be performed laparoscopically. With Advanced Women’s Healthcare, the patient and doctor can decide together which approach is best.
As you can see, Advanced Women’s Healthcare can help you in every phase of your reproductive life cycle. From fertility treatments to breast feeding supplies, or from birth control options to hysterectomies, Advanced Women’s Healthcare has got you covered in every aspect of women’s health. Stop by their Dallas office to meet the staff and take a tour of their facility where you can see some of the great treatment options they have to address any of your feminine healthcare needs.
