Service Information

Overview

What is Obstetrics & Gynecology?

Transitions. Growth. Journeys. Obstetrician Gynecologists provide preventive, medical and surgical services to women of all ages as they move through different phases in their lives.

Our OB/GYN providers are specialists in women’s health. We work with adolescents to develop good health habits, including the effective use of contraception and prevention of sexually transmitted diseases. We remain with our patients when they decide to start families, through pregnancy and childbirth, and we continue to provide care through the transition into menopause and towards our patients’ later years.

How We Are Different

Our physicians are all board certified or board eligible. In addition to providing comprehensive care during pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum, we are trained in a variety of surgical procedures including abdominal surgery, as well as a full range of minimally invasive techniques such vaginal, laparoscopic and robotic approaches. We perform same day surgeries in our Ambulatory Surgery Center.

Our certified nurse midwives provide focused, personalized care during pregnancy and childbirth, as well as basic gynecologic services. They perform water births at PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center. Our physicians and midwives work in a supportive and collegial fashion to provide the best outcomes for patients. Our CenteringPregnancy program is a way for our midwives to provide prenatal care. It combines health assessment, learning, and community building in a group setting.

Our Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) department offers high-risk obstetric care within the Clinic, which creates an integrated, high-functioning prenatal team who provide inpatient and outpatient care across multiple sites.

Whether you are preparing to welcome a new life, or seeking support in a moment of deep concern, all of our services can be coordinated with other medical and surgical specialties within the Clinic, as well as with our laboratory and imaging departments.
