Gynecology

What is gynecology?

Gynecology is a specialized area of medicine that focuses on women’s reproductive health. Dr. Masterson is a board-certified OB/GYN who provides gynecology services for women throughout every stage of her life — from adolescence through pregnancy to menopause and beyond.

Dr. Masterson believes in the importance of helping women take charge of their health to maintain wellness and well-being. 

She takes a personalized and holistic approach to care and uses a combination of traditional and complementary therapies to help you get the well-rounded support you need to maintain health and prevent disease. 

What are gynecology services?

Dr. Masterson offers an array of gynecology services to meet any need. These services include:

  • Annual well-woman care exam
  • Infertility evaluation and treatment
  • Birth control consultations
  • Treatment for menopause symptoms
  • Minimally invasive surgery
  • STD testing and consultation

Dr. Masterson also offers aesthetic gynecology, which includes non-surgical vaginal revitalization with her high-intensity focused ultrasound treatment. 

The advanced aesthetic tool stimulates tissue regeneration to revitalize vaginal health and alleviate vaginal laxity and dryness. 

What can I expect during a gynecology exam?

When you visit Dr. Masterson for a gynecology appointment, you can expect an in-depth and patient-focused exam. Before your physical and pelvic exam, Dr. Masterson first spends time reviewing your medical and gynecological history, and health issues and concerns.

She then conducts your physical, pelvic, and breast exam. Depending on your age and gynecology history, she may request various health screenings to assess your current health and future health risks.

Health screenings may include:

  • Pap smear
  • HPV (human papillomavirus) test
  • Mammogram
  • Bone scan
  • Colonoscopy
  • Blood test
  • Lipid profile
  • Blood pressure screening

After your exam, Dr. Masterson reviews her findings with you and provides recommendations to help you maintain or improve your current health and prevent future health problems.

What are common gynecology problems?

In addition to managing your general health and wellness, Dr. Masterson also specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of many common gynecological conditions. 

Common gynecological problems include:

  • Endometriosis
  • Fibroids
  • Pelvic pain
  • Irregular vaginal bleeding
  • Painful periods

When treating gynecology problems, Dr. Masterson uses the best, most minimally invasive surgical techniques when needed. For example, she uses radiofrequency ultrasound for the treatment of endometriosis.
