Genetic testing available at Maimonides
Maimonides is a leader in providing the most advanced diagnostic and genetic testing services available. We provide testing, screening, and detailed genetic counseling for women at risk for breast, ovarian, and endometrial cancers. We also offer minimally invasive ultrasound-guided procedures. Ultrasounds are important for carriers of some cancer-related genetic mutations, as the test can indicate if a tumor is developing.
Our expert care team can also perform many other important evaluations, such as assessment of pelvic pain, irregular bleeding, and pelvic floor dysfunction. If a problem is detected, we offer our patients referrals to world-renowned surgeons and other specialists at Maimonides, providing the highest standard of comprehensive and multidisciplinary care.
Post-reproductive gynecology and menopause
Maimonides takes the latest and gentlest approaches to treat midlife issues, such as weight gain, hormonal imbalance, inflammatory conditions, sexual pain, vaginal discomfort, and decreased sexual drive. We offer traditional and alternative treatments, including hormone balancing for menopause, perimenopause, endometriosis, premenstrual syndrome, polycystic ovarian syndrome, menstrual migraines, irregular periods, and hot flashes. We also offer full urogynecology services, counseling, and hypnosis.
Minimally invasive hysterectomy
Hysterectomy (surgical removal of the uterus) is used to treat uterine disease, including cancer, fibroids, endometriosis, and prolapse, or to relieve chronic pain, bleeding, or other disabling conditions. At Maimonides, we specialize in minimally invasive procedures using a state-of-the-art surgical robotic system.
Benefits of minimally invasive procedures include:
- Less blood loss
- Lower risk of infection
- Reduced pain
- Reduced scarring
- Shorter recovery time
Urogynecology and pelvic reconstructive surgery
Pelvic floor disorders, such as urinary incontinence, can affect women from adolescence through post-menopause. Our board-certified, fellowship-trained physicians specialize in diagnosing and treating all pelvic floor disorders, including urinary and fecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, and other related issues.
We offer a wide variety of treatment options, including:
- Advanced surgical procedures
- Biofeedback and electrical stimulation
- Dietary changes
- Minimally invasive laparoscopic techniques including advanced robotics
- Pelvic floor muscle exercises
