Women's Health

Southeast Georgia Health System offers a wide array of health services that are geared toward women of all ages and stages of life. From menstruation to menopause, our team offers the expert care you need, conveniently located close to home.

We care for a woman’s complete health needs

We provide a comprehensive list of services that are focused specifically on the needs of women:

Breast care. Women need routine breast care throughout their lives. Our services include digital 3D mammography, which is designed to detect breast cancer at an early, more treatable stage. We also offer diagnostic care, including breast ultrasound and stereotactic biopsies and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) for advanced breast imaging. If treatment is needed for a breast health concern, our dedicated breast care navigator will guide you to the right care.

Obstetrics and gynecology (OB/GYN). Whether you need an annual well-woman visit or help with menopausal symptoms, our board-certified OB/GYNs are here for you. Their services include Pap tests for cervical cancer screening and treatments for a variety of concerns, from abnormal periods to conditions that require gynecological surgery.

Maternity care. Our caring maternity team is here for you throughout pregnancy with prenatal care, including childbirth classes, and labor and delivery services. We also offer breastfeeding support before and after the birth of your baby and when you return home.

Incontinence treatment. If you have trouble controlling your bladder, you’re not alone. Urinary incontinence (the involuntary leakage of urine) is more common in women than men — especially in women who have had children or those who have reached menopause. You don’t have to struggle in silence with this condition. Our skilled physical therapists provide treatments like pelvic floor therapy to help women manage urinary incontinence.

Osteoporosis screening. As women get older, they are more likely to develop osteoporosis (a bone-thinning disease). Often, women with this disease have no symptoms until a bone breaks. That’s why women ages 65 and older — and younger women with risk factors — may need a bone density test for osteoporosis.

Our DEXA (dual energy X-ray absorptiometry) is a painless exam that reveals early loss of bone mass so that treatment of osteoporosis can begin before a bone breaks.
