Women's Health & Gynecology

Hartford HealthCare Medical Group offers gynecology services for every stage of a woman's life, from the teenage years to pregnancy, menopause and beyond. 

Gynecology

We provide routine screenings and treatments, as well as compassionate care for a range of reproductive health and pelvic problems.


Gynecologic Onocology

Women's Health Services is a full gynecologic oncology program. Expert gynecologic oncologists are available for consultation, treatment and long term follow-up. They specialize in care of patients with cancer of the ovary, uterus, cervix and vulva. The gynecologic oncologist works closely with members of the radiation therapy and medical oncology departments to ensure comprehensive care.

We participate in the national Gynecology Oncology Group (GOG) to foster ongoing research and improvement in patient care. Our clinicians are members of national societies. We espouse the team approach to care, in order to ensure that all aspects of a woman's health and well being are addressed.

All other areas of the Women's Health Services program are available to patients in this program including colposcopy for abnormal Pap smears, hormone replacement therapy for menopause, and the Women's Ambulatory Health Service for the community.

Dealing with a diagnosis of breast cancer is made easier with clear information, emotional support and assistance with challenging decisions. Although your health care team will provide you with information about breast cancer, you may think of other questions when you are not with a health care professional or you may be afraid or embarrassed to ask questions.


Pelvic Health

We have nationally recognized urogynecologists who treat disorders such as incontinence, dropped bladder, dropped uterus and bladder infections.

Uterine Fibroids

Nearly 35 five percent of premenopausal women experience debilitating symptoms related to uterine fibroids.

These symptoms include heavy menstrual bleeding, severe cramping, urinary frequency and pelvic pain. While these symptoms are not life threatening, they can be debilitating to the average woman and result in missed work, severe anemia and hospitalization. 

Interventional Radiology provides a less invasive outpatient treatment option for patients with symptomatic uterine fibroids that provides symptomatic relief without the need for hospitalization or surgery.


FemTouch Vaginal Laser Therapy

FemTouch Vaginal Laser therapy, a new laser treatment, can have transformational effects on postmenopausal women who experience vaginal dryness.
