Standard annual visits would normally include pap smears, breast exams, and other tests deemed necessary. Discussions regarding any abnormal periods, pain, bleeding, nausea or any other concerns will also be addressed. Patients are actively involved in deciding the care they will receive. As a young lady develops, the need for professional feminine care becomes a necessary part of her overall health care requirement. The healthcare professionals at MISS will provide the same loving professional care to her only modified to accommodate her youth and inexperience. These visits usually begin between ages 12-15 and are adjusted to meet her specific needs.
This is a general health checkup for women that occurs every year. Breast and pelvic exams along with pap smears are done. Blood work that checks for high cholesterol, heart disease, kidney disease, and Diabetes are also done. We explain a patient’s health status and how they can improve or maintain their health.
These are visits where we deal with different types of common and uncommon complaints. We deal with things as simple as family planning, to more complicated complaints of abnormal bleeding, fibroids, abdominal/pelvic pain, and urinary issues.
These are procedures done in the office where the patient does not need to go into the OR. We do office hysteroscopy using the (ENDOSEE system), office endometrial biopsies, placing and removal of intrauterine devices / subdermal devices, biopsies of lesions in sensitive areas, and treatment of genital warts.
Both open and minimally invasive gynecology surgeries can be done. Most gynecology surgeries done in Nigeria are for fibroids. This is called a myomectomy. We can do open myomectomies, laparoscopic myomectomies or hysteroscopic myomectomies. The other most common type of surgery is hysterectomy. Hysterectomies can be done vaginally, laparoscopically or via an open procedure.
