Screenings

Routine screenings and exams play a vital role in diagnosing gynecological conditions and early detection of cancer. In addition to offering standard exams such as X-rays, MRIs and ultrasound imaging, the physicians at Mease Countryside offer the following diagnostic tests:

  • Cystoscopy
  • Diagnostic laparoscopy
  • Endometrial biopsy

Gynecological Cancer Care

There are five main types of gynecological cancer – uterine (endometrial), cervical, ovarian, vaginal and vulvar. While there are many factors that may cause gynecologic cancer, all are treated more successfully when detected at an early stage. Symptoms to look out for include abnormal vaginal discharge or bleeding, pelvic pain, chronic bloating and pain during intercourse.

The team of oncologists and surgeons at Mease Countryside Hospital uses the most innovative treatment techniques available. In addition to chemotherapy (combination, regional and systemic), we also offer a comprehensive range of minimally invasive and traditional open surgeries.

Gynecological Surgery

For patients requiring gynecological surgery, the gynecological surgeons at Mease Countryside Hospital offer procedures on an outpatient and inpatient basis. Some gynecological surgeries can be performed using a minimally invasive approach. Robotic surgery is an alternative to traditional surgery and offers many benefits to patients including less pain, a faster recovery, shorter hospital stay, less risk of infection and smaller scar. Surgeons also benefit from robotic surgery by gaining a high-resolution visual field, enhanced dexterity and better access to surgical sites. The surgeons at Mease Countryside Hospital use the da Vinci® Surgical System, the most sophisticated surgical system available and designed especially to make your surgery as precise as possible.
