A woman has unique health needs that change throughout her life. With this in mind, Pikeville Medical Center (PMC) established the Eastern Kentucky Advanced Women’s Care Center to offer comprehensive services to meet those needs from pregnancy through childbirth and the health of the entire female reproductive system. PMC offers Eastern Kentucky’s largest on-call, board-certified team of seven OB/GYN physicians who provide specialized services for complete obstetrical and gynecologic care, ensuring women within the region have access to the care they need.
The Eastern Kentucky Advanced Women’s Care Center at PMC offers women’s well screenings, family planning, guidance on fertility matters, pregnancy and postpartum care, minimally invasive gynecologic surgeries, menopausal care and more.
Similar to seeing a primary care provider, it is important for a woman to see an OB/GYN throughout her life. Regular visits allow for early detection and prevention of potential health issues. Through routine check-ups, screenings and tests, an OB/GYN can identify abnormalities or signs of illness that may not be apparent to the patient. Early detection helps healthcare providers act promptly in interventional and treatment measures, improving outcomes and preventing the progression of certain conditions.
Establishing a relationship with an OB/GYN physician provides an opportunity for women to discuss any concerns or questions they may have in a confidential and supportive environment, which encourages women to take an active role in managing their own health.
