Outside the context of medicine, gynecology literally means science of women. Gynecology is an essential part of women’s health that deals with the health of female reproductive organs such as ovaries, tubes, uterus, cervix, vagina, and the external genitalia.
Koç Healthcare Women’s Health specialists provide compassionate and individualized care for women that includes check-ups, institution of preventive measures such as cancer screening, clinical evaluation of reproductive problems as well as deciphering rare symptoms or syndromes.
This entails screening and treatment of various conditions related to women’s health such as:
We provide treatment with the most recent cutting edge technology that includes but not limited to:
Fibroids are found in 70% of the women by the time they reach the age of 50. Although they can be asymptomatic, many women seek treatment for fibroids. Asymptomatic women can be managed expectantly. Women who do not wish to have surgery can be treated medically or with invasive radiologic approaches such as MRI guided focused ultrasound and embolization. We provide different surgical treatments that include laparoscopic myomectomy, robotic myomectomy, hysteroscopic myomectomy, and hysterectomy. All patients are evaluated by 2D and 3D ultrasound and when necessary with MRI prior to treatment.
Koç Women’s Health Center promotes a healthy and happy sexual life for all women and encourages them to have safe sex.
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are acquired by sexual contact. The spread of the disease may be through blood, semen, secretions, or other body fluids. STDs include syphilis, hepatitis, HIV, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Herpes, HPV and many others.
Some STDs may have specific symptoms such as vaginal discharge and pain with intercourse, while it is also possible to acquire STDs from people who are looking perfectly healthy. Therefore, we strongly recommend you to use condoms consistently and to get checked for STDs regularly.
We provide screening, diagnosis, and treatment of STDs. Our screening methods include PCR amplification, culture and microscopic evaluation of secretions, specific blood tests, and HPV typing.
Our contraceptive counselling is individualized according to each woman’s special needs and future plans. We encourage a safe and happy sexual life with educational resources and counselling on sexually transmitted diseases.
Our contraception care also focuses on management of complex contraception cases for patients with medical issues or intolerance to specific birth control methods, care for emergency contraception, pregnancy termination, and management of miscarriages.
Our offerings include:
We combine Pap smear with Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) typing in order to enhance the diagnostic accuracy of the cervical cancer screening. Moreover, we offer HPV vaccination to our patients to limit their risk of getting infected with the virus itself.
