What Can I Expect When Receiving Women's Health Services?

The women's health specialists at USMD Hospital at Arlington strive to ensure a positive, personalized experience for all who visit our hospital. In addition, physicians, surgeons, and other healthcare practitioners providing women's health services at our Arlington, TX hospital are highly trained to utilize some of the most advanced medical technology in use today. Such technologies include:

  • Robot-Assisted Surgery: With the da Vinci® Surgical system, surgeons can perform robot-assisted hysterectomies, myomectomies, the diagnostic evaluation of a pelvic mass, endometriosis treatment, and ovaries, cysts and tumors removal, among other procedures.
  • Stereotactic Biopsy: This form of biopsy may be performed as an alternative to a surgical biopsy. To conduct this procedure, the physician utilizes computer-guided imaging to locate a suspicious area of tissue, a sample of which is then aspirated with a syringe.
  • Laparoscopy: A number of gynecological procedures are performed laparoscopically, including the diagnosing and treatment of ovarian cysts, fertility-related concerns, uterine fibroids, adhesions, and endometriosis. Laparoscopy utilizes a light-emitting scope to allow physicians to clearly visualize structures within the pelvic area.
  • Laser Technology: Advanced soft tissue lasers may be implemented to treat or remove lesions or other abnormal tissue in the cervical, vaginal, or genital areas.

These advanced options for surgical and patient care allow for a more minimally invasive procedure, often carry less downtime, and may enable a faster recovery period.

What Questions Should I Ask My Women’s Health Specialist at My First Appointment?
Any questions you ask will help you understand your health status, regardless of your condition. Common questions to ask your women’s health specialist may include what’s causing specific symptoms, how often to schedule breast screenings, and what recovery is like for most patients after surgeries.
How Long Does It Take to Recover After a Hysterectomy?
The recovery time can vary from patient to patient. However, it is common to recover fully in around 6 – 8 weeks. It is important to rest during this time and not lift heavy items to help ensure optimal recovery.
How Long Will a Breast Examination Take?
In general, your breast exam will take around 10 minutes to complete. You will feel light, medium, and deep pressure during the exam, which helps to assess each layer of breast tissue.
Does Insurance Cover Women’s Health Services?
It is common for services offered by our women’s health specialists to be covered, at least in part, by insurance. Our team at USMD Hospital at Arlington will work with you to ensure you understand what type of coverage you have before beginning treatments or surgeries.
