Obstetrics and gynecology

A woman's obstetrician-gynecologist (OB/GYN) is a vital part of her healthcare team. And choosing an OB/GYN is an important decision.

OB/GYNs are doctors who are specially trained in how to provide care for women's bodies and reproductive systems in all stages of life. Your OB/GYN can help you with routine screenings to keep you healthy and help you navigate life changes like menopause. They can help you plan a pregnancy and deliver your baby. And they can provide expert treatment for any reproductive health concerns that you experience.

If you're looking for an OB/GYN, Truman Medical Centers/University Health has the right team for you.

Women of all ages trust us for routine gynecological care. From the first menstrual cycle throughout the remainder of their lives, our team provides women with the best possible care in a state-of-the-art environment.

The expertise you're looking for

Our OB/GYNs are board-certified and experienced in their field. Some members of our staff have board certification in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery. These urogynecologists are specialists in diagnosing and treating pelvic floor disorders.

Our OB/GYNs are certified in minimally invasive and robotic surgical techniques. If you ever need gynecologic surgery, you can rest assured that your doctor will use a minimally invasive approach whenever appropriate so you can recover quickly and return to your regular activities as soon as possible.
