The truth of the matter is that, medically, women and men are different - and the differences go way beyond reproductive issues. Research shows that women may respond differently to some treatments than men do. Women are also more likely to develop a wide range of chronic health problems during their lifetimes--from rheumatoid arthritis and migraines to incontinence and depression. Even heart attack symptoms can differ in a woman than a man.
Choosing a doctor that understands how gender affects medical care can make a world of difference.
At KentuckyOne Health, our physicians are attuned to the unique aspects of caring for women of all ages, from puberty and pregnancy through menopause and advanced age. All of our experts consider how hormones and other unique gender differences might factor into your health--whether you need help with a "female" issue (such as abnormal menstrual periods or endometriosis) or a health problem that crosses both genders (such as asthma, heart disease, or lung cancer).
Several of our services that primarily focus on women's health issues, including gynecology and hormonal disorders, rank among the top programs in the country. In addition, many of our physicians and researchers are world-renowned for their expertise in diseases that affect women.
