Dr. Kennedy and Nurse Practioner Laura

About the Practice
We strive for the best in women's preventive care and treatment of any gynecologic and pelvic problems. We stress preventive issues in adolescent and teen young ladies and focus care on patients' individual issues. In the childbearing years, focus is again individual and family planning issues are covered, and pre-menopausal concerns are addressed if needed. Postmenopausal care may involve a number of topics as well as numerous possible treatments and alternatives.

We provide comprehensive gynecology services. Common gynecologic problems include abnormal pap smears, abnormal bleeding, pelvic pain, pelvic infections, uninary incontinence, pelvic prolapse, hormonal shifts and menopausal symptoms, to name a few. The field of urogynecology, which includes urinary incontinence and structural pelvic floor abnormalities, is developing at a rapid pace and new technologies are introduced constantly. Dr. Kennedy keeps abreast of current trends and the most efficacious procedures to treat pelvic floor issues. Pelvic pain continues to be a challenging condition with causes from the female organs, bladder and urinary system, structural, and medical conditions. These can be evaluated in an efficient manner to discover appropriate treatment options.
