Whole-Person Wellness Care

Advanced Gynecology Services

 

Head to toe, from the inside out, your bodily systems work in harmony. Miraculous as that is, it’s normal for something to occasionally fall out of rhythm. If you’re one of the many women who find themselves in need of advanced gynecologic services, don’t put it off out of discomfort or self-consciousness. We promise that no matter what’s troubling you, we’ll make you feel at home and at ease, even while discussing the most intimate of issues. Most importantly, we’ll give you a clear path toward solving your most troubling concerns.

Our experts have helped women at every age and stage overcome the following conditions and challenges, including:

  • Endometriosis: If you’re facing endometriosis, AdventHealth for Women is a great place to be. We’ve helped many women overcome pain and even successfully get pregnant.

  • Fibroid Tumors: Our highly skilled specialists have a plan designed specifically for you. Whether that’s medication therapy, a minimally invasive procedure, or a combination, your care will meet your lifestyle and goals — including getting pregnant.

  • Menopause Management: As you age gracefully and experience menopause, we’ll be here to help with uncomfortable hot flashes, inconvenient hair growth, and more. If your symptoms become severe, we’ll help you manage them, guiding you through hormone replacement therapy and ways to empower yourself during this transitional time.

  • PCOS: If polycystic ovarian syndrome is interfering with your wellness goals, we’ll design a customized care program to lessen its impact.

Minimally Invasive Surgery

We work to find the most effective and least invasive treatment for your needs. You’ll always be empowered to choose the best route for your individual road to recovery. If together we decide that surgery is the best way to get you feeling your best again, know that you’ll be in incredibly capable hands.

Before, during, and after any procedure, we’re here to listen to your concerns, explore every option, and care for you through it all. Your surgeon will always be prepared to talk you through the latest minimally invasive methods, including robotic and single-incision surgeries for conditions such as:

  • Cervical Cyst Removal
  • Fibroid Removal 
  • Hysterectomy
  • Myomectomy — removal of uterine fibroid tumors
  • Ovarian Cyst Removal
  • Sacrocolpopexy — a procedure to correct prolapse of the vaginal vault after a hysterectomy
  • Uterine Cyst Removal

These procedures help you get back to your day-to-day life with faster recovery times, shorter hospital stays, and less scarring. It’s all part of our mission to tend to your mind and spirit as well as your body, easing anxieties and helping you focus on what’s next.

Gynecologic Cancer Care

A cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming and scary. But with an expert care team by your side, you won’t be facing your gynecologic cancer alone. At the AdventHealth, formerly Florida Hospital, Cancer Institute, we perform over 2,000 gynecologic surgeries and participate in more than 175 clinical trials each year in order to advance our skills and discover new ways to fight your cancer. Whenever possible, we treat cancers including cervical, endometrial, ovarian, uterine, vaginal and vulvar cancers with minimally invasive surgical and radiation therapies that reduce pain and get you on the road to recovery faster.
