About Us

University of Nevada Women's Healthcare Our board certified specialists provide personal, professional and compassionate care in the prevention, detection and treatment of a broad range of women’s health concerns.

We offer advanced gynecological surgical treatments including vaginal, laparoscopic and abdominal hysteroscopies, a procedure that makes examining the inside of the uterus possible without making an abdominal incision.

Our doctors are committed to improving the delivery of healthcare that women and adolescents receive today and years to come. Schedule an appointment for your complete obstetrical care, preventative annual exams or extensive gynecological services today.

Services

Prenatal Care
Prenatal care is the health care you get while you are pregnant. Prenatal care can help keep you and your baby healthy. Babies of mothers who do not get prenatal care are three times more likely to have a low birth weight and five times more likely to die than those born to mothers who do get care.

Our doctors can spot health problems early when they see mothers regularly. This allows us to treat them early. Early treatment can cure many problems and prevent others. Our doctors also can talk to pregnant women about things you can do to give your unborn baby a healthy start to life.

Annual Exam
An annual exam usually consists of routine screenings, including Pap smears and breast exams. A breast exam may help detect cancer at its early stages.

Birth Control Options
We offer several birth control options for women, including intrauterine devices, Implanon, depo provera, vaginal rings, oral contraceptives, transdermal contraception, outpatient and in-office sterilization.

Comprehensive Women’s Health Services
Colposcopic exams, STI screening, treatment of vaginal infections, gynecologic and urogynecologic surgeries, urogynecology, routine and high-risk obstetrical care may provide a more thorough result.

This may also include the treatment of abnormal bleeding, menopausal symptoms, endometriosis and pelvic pain.

Colposcopy
A colposcopy is a procedure to closely examine your cervix, vagina and vulva for signs of disease. During a colposcopy, our doctors use a special instrument called a colposcope.

Your doctor may recommend colposcopy if your Pap test has shown abnormal results. If your doctor finds an unusual area of cells during colposcopy, a sample of tissue can be collected for laboratory testing, called a biopsy.

Urodynamics
Urodynamics is a study that assesses how your bladder and urethra are performing their job of storing and releasing urine. Urodynamic tests help your doctor see how well your bladder and sphincter muscles work and can help explain symptoms such as incontinence, frequent urination, sudden and strong urges to urinate, and painful urination.

Biofeedback
The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock, stretching from the pubic bone to the lower back. These muscles support the pelvic organs, including the bladder. If pelvic floor muscles become weak or damaged due to childbirth, surgery, excess straining or genetics, incontinence can occur.

Fortunately, urinary incontinence can be improved in some patients by exercising and strengthening these muscles. Although some patients may in the past have tried pelvic floor muscle exercises, called Kegel exercises, they may have found them ineffective for several reasons. Using biofeedback, a patient with urinary incontinence learns to recognize signals from the pelvic floor muscles that control urination. You can then use these signals to exercise and strengthen the correct pelvic floor muscles and improve function.

Gynecologic Surgery
Gynecologic surgery treatments can include procedures like cyrosurgery, when a section of the cervix is frozen to destroy abnormal cervical cells that may show changes that lead to cancer, LEEP, or loop electrosurgical excision procedure, used when there is an indication of abnormal cells on the surface of the cervix.
