Gynecology Q & A
Why are annual gynecologic exams important?
Your annual gynecologic exam is the key to staying healthy. Most gynecologic problems develop so gradually that you won’t have symptoms until enough damage is done to trigger pain.
When you see Dr. Shilad for routine well-woman exams, he can detect problems at their earliest stage — before you have symptoms — and start treatment to prevent a serious health threat.
Which gynecologic services are available?
Dr. Shilad offers comprehensive gynecologic care for women of all ages, from young women getting their first pelvic exam to menopause and beyond.
He cares for your complete health by screening for chronic diseases and providing gynecology services such as:
- Birth control
- Preconception planning
- Pap test
- STD testing
- Pelvic and breast exams
- Menopause management
- Hormone replacement therapy
- Treatment of urinary incontinence and urinary tract infections
- HPV immunizations
When should you seek medical attention for gynecologic problems?
Although you should call One Oak Medical any time you have symptoms or concerns about your health, it’s important to schedule an appointment if you experience the following:
- Bleeding between periods or prolonged, heavy bleeding
- Frequent, urgent need to urinate or burning sensation during urination
- Vaginal bleeding after menopause
- Pain or pressure in your pelvic area
- Vaginal itching, burning, or soreness
- Sores in your genital area
- Vaginal discharge with unpleasant odor or unusual color
- Pain or bleeding during intercourse
In many cases, these symptoms develop from treatable issues, but they’re also possible signs of severe gynecologic problems. Pelvic pain, for example, may signal a condition like endometriosis, which affects your fertility.
How are gynecologic problems diagnosed and treated?
At One Oak Medical, Dr. Shilad has access to the most advanced technology, so he provides various in-house diagnostic services. If a condition develops that needs surgical intervention, he’s also an expert in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, including robotic surgery.
Minimally invasive surgery is performed using a few small incisions. As a result, many procedures are done on an outpatient basis. More importantly, you recover quickly, you have less pain, and scarring is minimal.
You can count on Dr. Shilad for all your gynecology needs. If you’re due for a well-woman exam or need medical attention, call One Oak Medical or book an appointment online today.
