Women’s bodies are remarkable and complex. They are also prone to unique challenges that often include heavy bleeding, pelvic organ prolapse (a pelvic organ drops out of or presses into the vagina), premenopausal symptoms and menopausal symptoms.
The women’s health specialists at PeaceHealth and our community partners help a woman manage her body’s changing needs through all of life’s stages — from adolescence to the senior years. Team members may include gynecologists, obstetricians, nurse practitioners, certified mid-wives, pelvic floor specialists or gynecologic surgeons.
You can trust PeaceHealth with your most sensitive or serious health concerns.
