In gynecology, we keep up to date with all the latest advances in the specialty by attending international meetings and thorough review of monthly publications in the key journals in our field; the newest therapies for the treatment of common gynecological disorders, the latest methods of birth control, advances in fertility treatments, and the newest treatments for pelvic floor dysfunction and relaxation, urinary incontinence, and vaginal rejuvenation using laser technology.

In obstetrics, we provide up to date prenatal services, the latest fetal genetic diagnostic testing and advanced ultrasound fetal imaging. Deliveries are carried out by a team of dedicated and highly qualified professionals who take a natural approach to pregnancy and childbirth in state of the art facilities.

As the population ages and more women enter menopause, we provide expert guidelines and recommendations to treat common physical and emotional symptoms of menopause using an integrated approach, including natural therapies and bioidentical hormone replacement when indicated.

To support our efforts in preventive medicine we promote campaigns for early detection and evaluation of breast cancer, cancer of the uterus, cervix, and ovaries, in addition to other non-gynecological conditions which are common to women, including depression, bone loss and cardiovascular health, increasingly important as women begin to age. New genetic testing is available to assess individual risk for certain cancers and pathologies.

All these are examples of our goal:

To offer complete and integrated multilingual healthcare for women at all stages in their lives.
