Beyond the needs you have during childbearing years, Baptist Health Deaconess Women's Care offers services to protect your health at any age, and any stage, of life.
Maybe you need pampering. Perhaps you want to relax, or simply look and feel better. Massage therapy can help you relax, ease chronic headaches, stress, fibromyalgia, arthritis and back pain. Other spa services include Botox injections, laser hair removal, and spider vein treatment.
Breast Center and Imaging Services
We have been providing digital mammography since March 2007. We were the first in Madisonville to provide not only digital mammography, but also digital stereotactic breast biopsy capability. If you are age 40 or older, an annual mammogram is crucial. Women's Imaging Services provides ultrasounds, digital mammograms, breast ultrasound, and other procedures such as needle localization prior to surgical biopsy. For your convenience, we created a new Women's Imaging Services waiting room at Women's Care. This relaxing environment helps make taking care of yourself less stressful.
We offer you a revolutionary, non-surgical treatment for incontinence using an advanced pelvic floor therapy system. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services report an estimated 13 million people in the United States suffer from urinary incontinence. The condition affects all ages, an estimated 35 percent of women and 22 percent of men ages 65 years and older. For years, the condition was viewed as "taboo," implying that victims did not feel comfortable about discussing it with their physician in fear of embarrassment. That is why many incontinent people feel as though they are alone, when indeed they are not. If you haven't seen anyone about the problem, talk you're your provider.
Gynecologic Surgical Services
We offer a full range of gynecologic surgical services including office-based minor procedures and minimally-invasive surgical options. This include:
- Thermachoice - a solution to help women suffering with heavy periods. The in-office procedure that can lighten or end your heavy with no pills or hormonal side effects
- Essure - when your family is complete, consider this permanent birth control procedure that takes just 10 minutes to perform in the office.
- Hysterectomy alternative - smaller incisions, no hospital stay, faster recuperations and most importantly, less pain
Health Risk Assessment
We offer assessments that can help you determine the potential impact to your health based on factors such as cholesterol, stress, cancer, fitness, heart health, osteoporosis and nutrition. Knowing your risk factors can help you and your care provider take steps to reduce risks and improve your health.
