How Can We Help

Personalized Care

At ChristianaCare, we are dedicated to delivering the safest and most effective gynecological treatment and care available. After a complete assessment, a personalized treatment plan is prepared for every patient.

Everything we do is centered on you and your individual needs. As partners with you and your health care team, we can offer you exceptional care that incorporates the best practices and best technology available. Our services include:

General Gynecology – With services including family planning, contraception, treatment of menopause-related symptoms and routine exams and pap tests.

Pap Smear (Pap Tests) – Getting regularly scheduled pap smears is an effective method for preventing and detecting cancer of the cervix, the cylinder of tissue that connects the vagina and uterus.

A pap smear is a simple, painless test to screen for precancerous lesions on the cervix, as well as actual cancer.

Pap smears also save lives. Cervical cancer progresses very slowly and pap smears alert doctors to abnormal cells that can be treated before they actually become cancerous. In the last 50 years, due to widespread screening, the incidence of cervical cancer has fallen almost 50 percent in the United States.

Hysterectomy – If you’re suffering from symptoms such as heavy, frequent periods, uterine fibroids, a prolapsed womb or cancer of the vagina and related systems, you may need to undergo a hysterectomy to remove the womb. As one of the most common gynecological operations, we are able to guide and support you throughout the entire process so that you can remain calm, confident and healthy at all times.
