Gynecology Q & A

What is gynecology?

Gynecology deals with diseases and disorders of the female reproductive system. Physicians who practice gynecology have received advanced training in diagnostics and treatment of the breasts, vagina, fallopian tubes, cervix, ovaries, and uterus.

Gynecologists serve the role of both medical doctor and surgeon, and can perform procedures that treat conditions and diseases of the reproductive system. Some pursue training in the latest gynecologic tools and techniques, expanding the benefits they can provide to women of all ages. Dr. Levine has more than two decades of experience in gynecology, and is highly skilled in leveraging today’s medical technology to the greatest advantage.

What kind of services can a gynecologist provide?

The center of all gynecologic care should be the well-woman exam, a vitally important part of your overall health and wellness. Every woman should have this yearly exam to undergo routine tests that screen for common problems and diseases that can be easily treated if found early.

These visits give your medical team the information needed to guide your care. They also provide you with the details you need to make informed decisions about your own health.

Gynecologists can provide diagnostics and treatment for many conditions, including:

  • Endometriosis
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome
  • Infertility
  • Uterine fibroids or polyps
  • Cervical cancer
  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Menopause
  • Sexually transmitted disease
  • Abnormal uterine bleeding
  • Osteoporosis

These are just some of the more common issues that bring women to the care of Dr. Levine. Any issue that affects your reproductive system is addressed by your gynecologist.

Why should I see my gynecologist every year if I’m healthy?

Far too many women only see their gynecologist once symptoms are present. This is not the best way to achieve and maintain optimal health. Your annual visits allow Dr. Levine to provide the screening you need to catch gynecologic problems in the early stages when treatment can be most effective.

Also, a woman’s needs shift and change as she moves through the phases of life. Having a trusted gynecologist to turn to when questions arise is essential. Your annual exams also give your medical team the chance to gather important data on your health, building a medical record that becomes a critical tool to track changes and determine the best treatment path.
