Ultrasound – 2D and 4D

Ultrasound allows you to see your baby’s face and watch his or her tiny heart beat months before delivery and helps your doctor evaluate your baby’s growth and development.

One of the latest advancements in imaging and ultrasound technology is the 4D Ultrasound.  This technique is available to patients at Shawnee Health Care OB/GYN and provides you with “live action”, detailed images of your child in the womb.

Prenatal Care and Delivery

Prenatal care is an essential part of a healthy pregnancy for both mother and baby, and should begin very early in the pregnancy and continue regularly throughout the pregnancy.

Your healthcare provider will discuss many issues with you such as nutrition, physical activity, what to expect during the birth process, basic skills for caring for your newborn, and much more.

Family Planning

Family planning allows a woman and her partner to plan and effectively control the number of children in their family and the intervals between thier births.


A woman who has been trying to conceive unsuccessfully for six months or more may wish to have an infertility evaluation.  This will help determine the cause and the treatment options.

da Vinci Robotic Surgery

Our physician/surgeons are certified to perform da Vinici Robotic Surgery, available at Memorial Hospital of Carbondale.  The da Vinci System can enable a shorter hospital stay, a quicker recovery and faster return to normal daily activities.

Well-Woman Exams

A well-woman exam, also called an annual physical or a wellness visit, is the most important step that a woman of any age can take to protect her health.

Menopausal Care

Menopause is a natural biological process that happens to women in their 40s or 50s and marks the end of menstural cycles.  Some women have physical symptoms that are disruptive to their daily lives and may trigger feelings of anxiety, sadness, and loss.  Don’t hesitate to seek treatment.  There are many effective treatements available, from lifestyle adjustments to hormone therapy.  We will work with you to treat the symptoms that bother you.

Urinary Incontinence

Urinary incontinence – the loss of bladder control – is a common and often embarassing problem.  If urinary incontinence affects your daily activities, don’t hesitate to see your healthcare provider at Shawnee Health Care OB/GYN.  This medical condition can be managed and treated
