Powell Valley Healthcare takes great pride in providing complete care for women in all stages of life—from adolescence through menopause and beyond. Our Women's Health services offer you small-town compassion with state-of-the-art, big-city technology.

Care from a team of experts

When it comes to your care, we believe you should have options. That's why we have a multidisciplinary group of medical experts here to serve you.

Our team includes:

  • Board-certified obstetrician-gynecologists (OB-GYNs).
  • A board-certified family practitioner with a subspecialty in obstetrics.
  • Nurse practitioners with a specialty in women’s health.

But no matter what their specialty is, each member of our team is dedicated to listening to you, the patient. We take the time to talk one-on-one with you in order to truly understand what you're going through.

Common conditions we treat

Because every woman is different, we treat a variety of medical issues. Some of the more common women's health conditions we see include:

  • Abdominal scarring.
  • Abnormal menstrual bleeding.
  • Endometriosis.
  • Pelvic pain.
  • Pelvic prolapse.
  • Polyps.
  • Urinary incontinence.

The most effective treatments for you

Prevention is a very important part of what we do. We offer diagnostic testing, like well woman exams, Pap smears and the latest in digital mammography, so that we can catch cervical and breast cancers in their early stages.

In addition to testing, we practice most forms of hormone therapy, including hormone replacement therapy, hormonal implants and IUDs.

We are also available to help you figure out the most effective form of family planning for your lifestyle.

Gynecological surgeries we perform

We will always strive to treat your condition with medical management first. But surgery may be necessary in some cases. We perform a variety of gynecological surgeries, including minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery, vaginal surgery and traditional open surgery.

Some of the common gynecological surgeries we perform are:

  • Endometrial ablation.
  • Hysterectomy.
  • Hysteroscopy.
  • Polyp removal.
  • Removal of ovarian cysts.
