Physicians at Cleveland Clinic provide a full range of general gynecologic services for women, from yearly examinations and screenings to highly specialized procedures. General gynecologic problems include abnormal bleeding, chronic pelvic pain, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, loss of bladder control, pelvic floor disorders, problems with pelvic support and pediatric and adolescent gynecology.
Our staff is especially compassionate and skilled in examining girls and young women and in helping parents understand that gynecologic problems are not outgrown – they must be addressed and treated. Treatment and education can benefit both children and their parents.
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 for diagnosis and treatment of conditions including birth defects, menstrual disorders, endometriosis, pelvic pain, pelvic floor disorders, hormonal problems and eating disorders. Services include endoscopic examination, laparoscopic surgery and Pap tests and colposcopy to evaluate abnormal Pap tests.
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.
The Mature Women Program provides comprehensive evaluation and treatment for health concerns associated with menopause, including osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease.
Cleveland Clinic gynecologists also offer consultation for the management of chronic pelvic pain and vulvar disorders .
