Full-service women's care
No matter what stage of life you are in, our women's care specialists are here to help maintain your gynecologic, reproductive and breast health. We treat a full spectrum of conditions and provide specialized women's care in gynecology, breast imaging, oncology, obstetrics and urogynecology.
Breast screening and women's imaging
Regular breast imaging is key to maintaining your long-term health. Identifying breast abnormalities in their beginning stages helps us begin treatment before a breast condition reaches its advanced stages.
In addition to screening mammograms and 3D mammography, we provide several breast imaging options. We perform breast ultrasounds and breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans. If an abnormality is identified, we offer biopsy services, including stereotactic breast biopsy, to gather additional information.
To schedule a mammogram, call us at (913) 541-5062. Scheduling services are available Mon - Fri: 7:30am - 6:00pm. You can also schedule a mammogram online.
We also offer genetic counseling to help women who are at a high risk for developing breast cancer. Genetic counseling helps us identify certain risk factors and form a comprehensive screening plan for prevention and early detection.
Women may also receive a dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) scan to assess bone density. As women age, we tend to lose bone density, which can lead to conditions such as osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. Using DEXA scans, our doctors can see if bone density has been lost and if a patient is at a high risk for breaking a bone.
Our gynecologists are experts in the female reproductive system. Women's bodies go through a number of changes throughout the years. That's why our gynecologic services include preventive care and treatment for gynecologic conditions. Our preventive care services include well-women checkups, pelvic exams and Pap smears.
Infertility care is available for women trying to conceive. Our reproductive endocrinologists identify any problems and offer a variety of treatment options, including in-vitro fertilization (IVF). Fertility counseling is also available to support women emotionally throughout treatment.
Gynecologic conditions we treat
We treat a wide range of conditions affecting the female reproductive system, including:
- Amenorrhea (lack of menstruation)
- Bacterial vaginosis
- Family planning
- Fibrocystic disease
- Hormonal imbalances
- Menorrhagia (heavy or prolonged menstruation)
- Menstrual cramps
- Ovarian cysts

If a gynecologic condition requires a more invasive treatment, we perform gynecologic surgery and offer minimally invasive approaches. Some of our most common procedures include pelvic organ prolapse repair and hysterectomy (removal of the uterus). Our surgical oncology team also treats women with gynecologic cancers.
Gynecologic surgery is a field that has greatly benefited from surgical advancements, such as laparoscopy and robot-assisted technology. Women in our care have access to revolutionized surgical treatment options for conditions such as pelvic pain, vaginal bleeding, urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse.
Compared to traditional surgery, patients who receive minimally invasive gynecologic surgery often experience less postoperative pain, reduced blood loss, fewer surgical complications, shorter hospital stays and a faster overall recovery.

Our facility works in partnership with a leader in world class cancer care. We are proud to be a part of the Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute at HCA Midwest Health.
If breast cancer is identified during a breast imaging procedure, our cancer specialists are here to make sure you receive the care you need. We perform biopsies to diagnose and learn more about your condition. We also offer advanced surgical care, including mastectomies, lumpectomies and hidden scar surgeries.

Labor and delivery
We proudly provide comprehensive care for women throughout their pregnancy and childbirth experience. In addition to our Healthy Arrivals program, which helps expectant mothers prepare for their child's arrival, we provide specialized care for women experiencing a high-risk pregnancy.
Our labor and delivery rooms offer many amenities to keep expectant mothers as comfortable as possible. We provide epidurals and offer alternative pain relief options. Additionally, mothers can partner with a maternity navigator before their hospital stay to develop a unique birthing plan.
Our staff includes certified nurse-midwives (CNMs) who provide a hands-on approach during the birthing experience. Midwifery services for labor and delivery include water birth assistance, breastfeeding support, father-assisted birth and vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC). In addition to our CNMs, board-certified lactation consultants are available to assist in beginning breastfeeding during the postpartum stay.
High-risk pregnancy and maternal-fetal care
A pregnancy may be considered high-risk for several reasons, such as expecting multiples. Our prenatal services include a dedicated antepartum unit for mothers who require close supervision before birth. We offer specialized care for expectant mothers experiencing:
- Gestational diabetes
- Placenta accreta spectrum (PAS)
- Placenta previa
Our hospital is also home to the Maternal Fetal Health Center. Our maternal fetal medicine services include highly specialized care for women and their babies who may require medical or surgical treatment before childbirth.
If a newborn requires advanced medical care following birth, we have an on-site Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). We care for preemies and babies born with a medical condition requiring immediate support, such as neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS).
Urogynecology is the subspecialty of gynecology dealing with conditions affecting the pelvic floor and urinary system. Women can experience many different types of pelvic floor and urinary dysfunctions that affect their daily activities. We provide comprehensive diagnostic testing and treatment options, including urogynecologic surgery using transvaginal, laparoscopic and robot-assisted approaches, for these issues.
In addition to top-quality urogynecologic treatment, we have a dedicated pelvic floor rehabilitation program for women experiencing incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. The goal of treatment for these conditions is to strengthen and relax the pelvic floor muscles.
Urogynecologic conditions we treat
We treat a number of urogynecologic conditions, including:
- Fecal incontinence
- Painful bladder syndrome
- Pelvic organ prolapse
- Urinary incontinence
- Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
