Diagnostics & imaging
At Huntington Hospital, a full range of diagnostic and imaging technologies,
such as urodynamic testing and magnetic resonance imaging, are available
to quickly and accurately identify gynecological problems. Also available
are bone density x-ray, for the evaluation of osteoporosis and other related
conditions, and advanced ultrasound technologies for evaluation of fetal
development. Sophisticated diagnosis and treatment of pelvic pain and
fibroid growths, among other conditions, are also available, using minimally
invasive laparoscopic procedures.
For women requiring gynecological surgery, Huntington Hospital provides
care that is among the finest in the world. As an example, reconstructive
surgeries to repair tissue damaged during vaginal birth are among the
approximately 1,000 procedures provided by gynecological surgeons each
year at the hospital.
Our hospital's minimally invasive surgery (MIS) center is equipped
with state-of-the-art video laparoscopic and hysteroscopic technologies,
enabling our gynecologic surgeons to perform the most advanced procedures
available. Such techniques allow surgeons to treat fibroid growths or
polyps without the removal of the uterus, and recovery time and scarring
are often reduced. Treatment of ovarian cysts can also be accomplished
with or without the removal of the ovary and/or uterus, depending on a
patient's needs and circumstances.
In addition, our surgeons have developed a highly successful technique
to treat inverted vagina, and both vaginal and minimally invasive hysterectomy
are available. Our gynecological surgeons are also experts in the correction
of herniated vagina and in the treatment of prolapse of the uterus.
