There is a wide range on onsite staff, including neonatal nurses, neonatologists, and respiratory therapists to provide 24-hour care.
Pudendal Nerve Decompression
Pudendal nerve decompression is a treatment for people who have entrapment of the pudendal nerve, which is the primary nerve of the perineum. This decompression is ideally done using minimally invasive surgery through a small incision through the buttocks, although it can also be done via an incision made through the vagina or anus.
Removal Of Ovaries
One or both ovaries are removed through a surgical procedure called an oophorectomy, which can be done through the vagina, laparoscopic surgery, or open surgery. The procedure is typically done when a woman has ovarian cysts, endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), or ovarian cancer.
Removal Of Uterus With Our Without The Ovaries
The removal of the uterus is called a hysterectomy. When the ovaries are removed with the uterus, it is known as a full hysterectomy, and without the ovaries it is known as a partial hysterectomy. There are a variety of reasons why the uterus may be removed, such as chronic pelvic pain, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), endometriosis, uterine prolapse, uterine cancer.
Resection Of Extensive Endometriosis
The resection, or excision, or extensive endometriosis is a surgical procedure that is performed to remove abnormal tissue and lesions without the need to remove the uterus. This is done via laparoscopic surgery, which entails the creation of tiny incisions through which a scope and small instruments are used to remove the lesions.
Midwifery And Natural Childbirth
Midwifery is the health profession that deals with pregnancy, childbirth, and postnatal care of the mother and the newborn. The goal of the midwife is to help women have as natural a childbirth as possible and to prevent health problems during pregnancy and detect any abnormal conditions that may need more advanced medical care.
Pain Caused By Previous Pelvic Surgery
Pain caused by previous pelvic surgery is often the result of scar tissue. This pain can sharp or dull, cause cramping, and it is often chronic, lasting for more than 6 months. The pain can be managed with the use of pain medications, physical therapy, and counseling and cognitive-behavioral therapy.
Prenatal & Parenting Classes Or Maternity Classes And Events
Maternity classes are facilitated by board certified lactation consultants who provide support to breastfeeding moms during their baby’s first year of life. Moms have the opportunity to meet other breastfeeding moms and share feeding challenges.

Pudendal Nerve Entrapment
Pudendal nerve entrapment occurs when the pudendal nerve, located in the perineum, becomes the source of significant pain, burning, or numbness. This can be cause by a number of things, such as time spent on horseback or on a bicycle or motorcycle or prolonged periods of sitting.
Obturator Nerve Neuralgia
Obturator nerve neuralgia is a severe stabbing or burning pain that is caused by the compression of the obturator nerve. The compression of this nerve can be due to entrapment of the nerve by tight muscles and tissues or by a hemorrhage, tumor, an abscess, endometriosis, or the cement used in hip arthroplasty.
