The Section of Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology provides state-of-the-medical and surgical gynecologic care and urogynecology treatments for young female patients. Diagnosis, evaluation and consultation are available on an outpatient or inpatient basis. Conditions treated include:
Gynecologic problems can surface at any age, from birth through adulthood. More than 500 children and young women visit the Clinic's Cleveland gynecologists each year. Services include endoscopic examination, laparoscopic surgery and Pap tests and colposcopy to evaluate abnormal Pap tests. Currently, Ruth Farrell, MD, holds an adolescent colposcopy clinic every Friday.
Because treating children and adolescents usually requires more than just treating their physical problems, Cleveland Clinic pediatric gynecologists are supported by a comprehensive team of professionals trained to deal with emotional ups and downs as well as physical changes. Our team will help your child develop an honest and open relationship with her doctor that will facilitate the best possible care.
