Huntington Hospital provides a full range of gynecological care to meet the needs of women of all ages. Thanks to our advanced imaging, diagnostic and gynecological surgery, thousands of women turn to Huntington Hospital each year and count on us for expert care in a compassionate and caring setting.
Diagnostics and Imaging
At Huntington Hospital, a full range of diagnostic and imaging technologies, such as urodynamic testing and magnetic resonance imaging, are available to quickly and accurately identify gynecological problems. Also available are bone density x-ray, for the evaluation of osteoporosis and other related conditions, and advanced ultrasound technologies for evaluation of fetal development. Sophisticated diagnosis and treatment of pelvic pain and fibroid growths, among other conditions, are also available, using minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures.
For women requiring gynecological surgery, Huntington Hospital provides care that is among the finest in the world. Reconstructive surgeries to repair tissue that can be damaged during vaginal birth are among the approximately 1,000 procedures provided by gynecological surgeons each year at the hospital, for example.
The hospital's minimally invasive surgery (MIS) center is equipped with state-of-the-art video laparoscopic and hysteroscopic technologies, enabling our gynecologic surgeons to perform the most advanced procedures available. Such techniques allow surgeons to treat fibroid growths or polyps without the removal of the uterus, and recovery time and scarring are often reduced. Treatment of ovarian cysts can also be accomplished with or without the removal of the ovary and/or uterus, depending on a patient's needs and circumstances.
In addition, surgeons at Huntington Hospital have developed a highly successful technique to treat inverted vagina, and both vaginal and minimally invasive hysterectomy are available. Our gynecological surgeons are also experts in the correction of herniated vagina and in the treatment of prolapse of the uterus.
