A Collaborative, Patient-Centered Philosophy
The arc of a woman’s life is marked by profound physiological changes from puberty to menopause. From time to time, these changes require expertise beyond routine gynecologic care.
At The GW Medical Faculty Associates, our gynecologic specialists pursue a team-based approach to care — coordinating with specialists from urology, fertility and colorectal surgery to ensure patient concerns are heard, understood and treated appropriately.
We begin with a careful assessment conducted in our offices supported by diagnostic technologies such as:
Comprehensive evaluation helps to identify women who are candidates for in-office treatment such as hysteroscopic sterilization, polypectomy, and endometrial ablation.
When surgery is recommended, our doctors are dedicated to pursuing the advantages offered through minimally invasive gynecologic surgery. That approach commonly results in reduced pain, speedier recovery and briefer hospital stays — when hospitalization is warranted at all. A majority of our patients are treated by laparoscopy or hysteroscopy.
