Assess And Reduce Risks Of Breast Cancer
We understand the constant worry and confusion regarding breast cancer, especially if you are contemplating menopausal treatments or if you have a family member who has breast or ovarian cancer. At Women’s Excellence in Menopause we use risk assessment models and genetic testing in order to identify our patients who are at risk for breast and ovarian cancer and subsequently provide counseling and intervention to decrease risk and aid in managing their general medical health while understanding any genetic predispositions they have to these cancers.
We see many patients at Women’s Excellence in Menopause for concerns about hair loss. Although it is unclear about the etiology of hair loss, it is clear that there are environmental factors such as metabolism, nutritional deficiencies , thyroid abnormalities and fluctuations of hormone that can contribute. Since we offer a comprehensive approach to evaluating the metabolic, nutritional and hormonal aspects of the peri and post-menopausal woman, we can certainly help you find a cause for your problem.
Hormonal Balance/ In-depth Hormonal Assessment
Our goal is treating the whole person. All of our services reflect the comprehensive nature of our philosophies of treatment. Evaluation or standard laboratory data is important but we also employ in depth interpretation of symptoms, evaluation of a woman’s lifestyle, and physical examination to help to outline a patient’s goals for menopausal management.
Hot Flashes, Night Sweats And Headaches (Vasomotor Symptoms)
Vasomotor Symptoms are the most commonly reported menopausal symptoms. These symptoms include hot flashes, night sweats, and headaches. Generally, women experience these type of symptoms during their first few years of menopause. Women’s Excellence can help manage these symptoms with a customized plan for each individual patient.
Menopausal Symptomatology Using Traditional, Bioidentical And Micronutrient Treatments
Although much is relayed to all of us on a daily basis about hormonal therapy, it is relatively safe. However, hormonal therapy is not for everyone, in fact, there are many women who choose not to use hormones and the specialists at Women’s Excellence in Menopause understand! If you have a history of estrogen dependent cancer, a contraindication for hormones secondary to a blood clotting disorder or previous thromboembolic event (blood clot) or you just don’t want to use hormones, we can help.
Women’s Excellence offers individualized programs that evaluate the hormonal needs of each woman, specializing in bioidentical hormones.
Bioidentical hormones are biochemically the same as those made by the ovaries during women’s reproductive years. This type of therapy for menopausal symptoms is adopted by more patients than traditional therapy.
Women’s Excellence offers comprehensive micronutrient vitamin testing. Our nutrition evaluation, testing and supplementation is designed to individually evaluate the right pharmaceutical choice for each patient.
Pelvic Physical Therapy
We have treatments that help to strengthen the pelvic floor, mild urinary leaking (incontinence) and also weakened pelvic floor muscles. With our comprehensive evaluations and treatment, we now have a Pelvic Physical Therapist in our office to help those patients with mild incontinence and mild pelc floor prolapse, cystocoele and rectocoele. This is a great non surgical option for those women who are motivated and want to avoid surgical intervention for mild pelvic floor relaxation. If you are menopausal and notice that you are feeling bulging around the bladder, have no control over your pelvic floor muscles and are getting mild incontinence, ask us about Pelvic Physical Therapy as an option.
