Gynaecology is the area of medicine that deals with the distinct health issues and physical care procedures of women, usually involving the reproductive system and breasts.
At Spire, we have a team of gynaecologists in Washington who have an extensive knowledge of female health. If you’re experiencing unpleasant symptoms or have a complaint, the gynaecology team can apply all the latest techniques to identify the cause of the problem, including things like cervical smears and hormone tests. With this information, they can determine the most effective form of treatment, and may need to carry out a routine medical procedure to get your health back on track.
