Women have unique health needs that change over time. Pikeville Medical Center (PMC) has established the Eastern Kentucky Advanced Women’s Care Center to meet those needs through every stage of a woman’s life. The experienced OB/GYN team offers well screenings, family planning, pregnancy and postpartum care, minimally invasive gynecologic surgeries, menopausal care and more.

The Eastern Kentucky Advanced Women’s Care Center is a trusted and compassionate medical facility dedicated to providing comprehensive care for women’s health. With a team of highly skilled obstetricians/gynecologists, it offers a wide range of services and staffs seven OB/GYN physicians, making it the largest on-call, board-certified OB/GYN physician team in Eastern Kentucky.

Similar to seeing a primary care provider, it is important for women to see an OB/GYN regularly. Regular visits increase the chances 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 the patient may not recognize. Early detection helps healthcare providers act promptly in interventional and treatment measures, improving outcomes and preventing the progression of certain conditions.

In addition to disease prevention and management, an OB/GYN provides essential care in reproductive health, which includes family planning, contraception and guidance on fertility matters. Regular visits also support overall wellness and provide an opportunity for women to discuss any concerns or questions they may have in a confidential and supportive environment. Ultimately, consistent care from an OB/GYN promotes good health, ensures reproductive well-being and encourages women to take an active role in managing their health.
