Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy
Dominion Women's Health, Inc. is pleased to offer a natural solution
to unbearable menopause symptoms with Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy.
Bio-Identical hormones are made to be biologically compatible to the hormones
that your own body produces. Although estrogen and testosterone
pellets have been used for over 50 years, there are few doctors who currently
administer pellets in the United States. These implants are derived from
the soy or yam molecule and then are made by taking the hormone powder
and pressing it into a hard pellet. Each patient receives her
own special dose dependent on age, body weight, testosterone and estrogen
levels. There are no drug interactions with the hormone pellets since
they are not metabolized by the liver. Each patient should receive
the full benefit of a steady, accurate hormone dose for 4 to 6 months or
longer. A small incision is made and the pellets are inserted into
the subcutaneous tissue or fatty part of the hip to achieve a steady, consistent
delivery of hormone into the blood stream.
The quality of life given back to every woman is second to none.
Our patients have reported: increased energy levels, decrease in hot flashes
and night sweats, improved sleep patterns, restored or increased
sexual drive, consistency in moods, relief from anxiety and depression,
increased mental focus and clarity, decreased body fat, increased bone
density, and greater capacity for getting the body in shape.
The physicians carefully monitor your dosage. All patients who
undergo pellet insertion will be required to have follow-up labs drawn
in one month after the insertion. Please speak with your physician
to see if you are a candidate for bio-identical hormone pellet therapy. You will need to have current mammogram results as well as pap smear results on file.
Essure Permanent Birth Control
We are pleased to offer our patients an effective permanent tubal sterilization procedure that is performed in our office. If your family is complete, and you are tired of taking temporary birth control, then office sterilization may be right for you.
This procedure is different than the traditional method of a surgical tubal ligation. There is no cutting into the body. Instead the doctor inserts soft, flexible micro-inserts through the body's natural pathways and into your fallopian tubes. The procedure can be performed in our office without general anesthesia. Most patients report that the procedure is relatively painless, and can go back to work the next day. After 3 months, your doctor will perform an HSG confirmation test. This is a special type of x-ray performed in the outpatient radiology department at the local hospital to confirm that your tubes are completely blocked. You can now rely on the micro-inserts for birth control.
Unlike birth control pills, patches, rings and some forms of IUD's, there are no hormones to interfere with your natural menstrual cycle. Talk to your doctor for more information regarding this procedure. You may also visit the Essure or Adiana websites.
Ablation is a safe, simple procedure performed in our office that can significantly reduce or eliminate your monthly periods. Talk to your doctor for more information regarding this procedure.
We are pleased to inform you that we offer a wide array of Aesthetics services and treatments at our Medical Spa. Our licensed Master Estheticians will help tailor a treatment regime to achieve your personal skin care goals.
