As a gynecologist, I am your point of contact for all questions on female health, from puberty to advanced age. I not only specialize in therapy for diseases of the primary and secondary sexual organs as well as pregnancies, but also provide consultation regarding menstruation and menopause complaints, migraines, questions of contraception, sexual problems, and also family planning and other subjects.
I pay particular attention to prevention – recognizing disturbances and changes in a timely manner in most cases will prevent the need for lengthy therapies or even invasive procedures. For this reason, please stick to your preventative care appointments!
Gynecology is the science of prevention, recognition, and treatment of diseases of the female sexual and reproductive system. This includes the exterior genitals, the vagina, the uterus, the ovaries, the fallopian tubes, as well as the breasts and their lymph drainage areas. In a stricter sense, pure gynecology deals with health disturbances related to these organs of a non-pregnant woman. Modern gynecology moreover delves into hormonal influences and changes which can have an effect on a woman’s total overall health (for example, menopauses or thyroid gland illnesses), examines possible signs of illness such as for example headaches or back pains, as well as deals with women-related issues like contraception, sexuality, and family planning.
Gynecology is one of the operative areas of medical specialization. Frequent interventions are, for example, abrasions of the uteral cavity, the removal of the uterus (hysterectomy), tying of the fallopian tubes for sterilization purposes (tube ligaturing) and the removal of the ovary tract system through the keyhole procedure through the abdominal wall (laparoscopic ovary cystectomy), as well as tumor operations and all surgical breast interventions.
