Prenatal and Postpartum Care
Prenatal and postpartum care consists of providing care before and after delivery of your baby. Our team of providers work closely with the staff at Touro and Ochsner hospitals. The staff at these hospitals provides the delivery services.
Vaginitis, sexually transmitted diseases, uterine bleeding, and abnormal periods are some of the key issues addressed by our team.
With proper screening and regular Pap Smears, cervical cancer can often be found early. Cervical cancer is one of the most treatable cancers so it is extremely important patients schedule regular screenings to monitor their cervical health. The St. Thomas obstetrics team offers a range of preventative and treatment measures.
Mammography is the primary means of detecting breast cancer. This screening process consists of using low-energy X-Rays to detect masses in the breast. St. Thomas offers screening mammography for women ages 40 years old and up.
