Advanced Care for Young Female Athletes
The Adolescent and Pediatric Gynecology program at WellSpan provides advanced care to young girls and adolescents with gynecological concerns. Our highly qualified practitioners offer a range of services that not only support good health, but help female athletes compete at their highest level. These services include adolescent gynecology consultations, diagnostic testing and non-surgical treatments for urinary dysfunction and chronic gynecological conditions.
Whatever the reason for a young woman’s appointment, you can count on WellSpan for gentle, respectful and reassuring care. Our comfortable and welcoming office is designed to further minimize anxiety.
We begin every consultation by listening carefully and attentively to patient’s and guardian’s concerns. Once we have a complete understanding of adolescent female’s medical needs, we create a customized treatment plan that is coordinated with other WellSpan and non-WellSpan providers.
WellSpan gynecologists treat a wide variety of gynecologic conditions, including:
How We Can Help
The services we offer include:
Initial Gynecological Exam
WellSpan offers comprehensive initial gynecological exams, performed by our board-certified gynecologists. Recognizing that a first-time gynecological exam can be stressful, our doctors take the time to explain each procedure and answer your daughter’s questions. Since regular gynecological exams are so important, we do our best to make the initial visit a great experience.
Routine Pap Smears and Annual Gynecologic Care
Pap tests, along with pelvic exams, are an essential part of a woman's routine health care because they may detect abnormalities that can lead to invasive cancer. When treating our adolescent patients WellSpan’s gynecologists emphasize the importance of regular gynecological checkups.
Birth Control Counseling and Prescriptions
Besides proving gynecological exams, the WellSpan care team also counsels young women on birth control and explains their options, prescribing birth control medication when appropriate.
Supportive Education Regarding Adolescent Issues
Teenagers have many questions as they experience the normal changes of adolescence. WellSpan’s physicians and other providers are a resource your daughter can turn to for answers. We encourage an honest exchange of information during every visit, with the goal of giving your daughter more confidence in sports and every other area of life.
