Swedish Specialist Hospital Gynaecology Clinic is equipped to provide a full range of diagnostic services, including hysteroscopy and colposcopy. As well as dealing with general gynaecological problems, the Clinic offers specialist advice and management of abnormal cervical smears, ovarian cysts and endometriosis. The Clinic also offers the first formal screening service for ovarian cancer.
gynecology doctors specialise in diseases of the female genital tract and women's health. This means diseases of the uterus (womb), fallopian tubes, ovaries, cervix (opening of the womb), vagina, and vulva (external genital organs). A gynecologist also specializes in menstrual problems, contraception, sexuality, menopause, and infertility. Many gynecologists also provide prenatal care. Some gynecologists may perform primary care services depending on their experience and training.
In these days of managed care and HMOs many primary care providers (doctors or nurse practitioners in Internal Medicine, General Medicine, or Family Practice) are doing some basic gynecology and refer only to a gynecologist when they feel the condition is more appropriate for the specialist to handle.
Most women should go to a provider for routine annual pelvic exams. A gynecologist is probably more appropriate if there is a history of women's problems in the patient or her family, or if there is a condition which is not improving despite the primary care provider's best efforts. Another indication that a gynecologist may be preferred is if a woman always has a difficult or painful exam due to her size (large or small). A gynecologist may have better equipment available to assure her comfort.
