Specialized Expertise for Young Patients Who Are New Gynecologic Care
We offer first-time gynecologic exams, Pap smear consultations and more with a compassionate approach, making sure to meet the needs — both physically and emotionally — of every patient and their family. We take special consideration in providing support during the transition from pediatric care to gynecologic care.
Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecologic Surgery
Our experts provide surgical care for vaginal anomalies, labial hypertrophy and vaginal cysts. We also offer minimally invasive gynecologic surgery for the treatment of ovarian masses and adnexal masses. The benefits of minimally invasive surgical techniques include smaller incisions and shorter recovery times than traditional surgical procedures.
