Gynecology Q & A

What is gynecology?

Gynecology is an area of medicine focused on a woman’s reproductive health. It includes preventive care, diagnostic services, and customized treatment plans as needed.

As your gynecologist at The Miami Institute of Urogynecology and Minimally Invasive Surgery, Dr. Khamvongsa offers numerous services, including but not limited to:
  • Gathering biopsies or tissue samples for diagnostic purposes
  • Performing ultrasound to check for abnormalities in your reproductive organs
  • Diagnosing and treating urinary incontinence
  • Diagnosing and treating sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
  • Colposcopy and hysteroscopy, which are procedures to view the interior of your uterus
  • Laparoscopic or robotic surgery 
  • Diagnosis and treatment for gynecologic cancers
  • Infertility treatment
  • Diagnosis and treatment for polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), pelvic pain, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, and dysmenorrhea 
  • Menopause management

Dr. Khamvongsa has the skills, training, and experience needed to perform all of these services and more. He also has an excellent bedside manner and can support and guide you through even the most complex gynecologic needs.

When might I need gynecological surgery?

Many gynecologic conditions do not need surgical intervention, but there are times when surgery is the best course of action. The need to remove abnormal tissue growth is one of the most common functions of gynecologic surgery. 

Surgery can remove abnormal endometrial tissue, uterine fibroids, cancerous growths, genital warts, and more. Certain conditions may necessitate surgical removal of your uterus — a process called a hysterectomy.

In the case of pelvic organ prolapse, the focus is on creating structural support for displaced organs, rather than removing abnormal tissue. Dr. Khamvongsa prefers a minimally invasive surgical approach when possible, and is experienced in laparoscopy and the da VinciⓇ robotic surgery platform.  

When should I begin to see a gynecologist?

It’s a good idea for young women to begin seeing a gynecologist around the age of 15-16. While there’s no need for a Pap smear before becoming sexually active, many mothers bring their daughters in to establish a relationship with Dr. Khamvongsa.

Working with your gynecologist requires a significant degree of trust. By beginning the process well before a problem arises, your daughter has a chance to make positive associations with gynecology and women’s health care, which can last a lifetime. 

If you’re searching for a new gynecologist, call The Miami Institute for Women's Health today to book an appointment with Dr. Khamvongsa. Online scheduling for gynecology services is also available, making it easy to find a time that fits your busy life.
