Women's health

At Humboldt General Hospital, we believe you deserve healthcare that addresses your unique needs as a woman.

HGH's experienced women's health team is led by a nationally recognized board-certified obstetrician-gynecologist (OB-GYN) who has served rural communities for many years.

We build ongoing relationships with our patients that are empowering. Our friendly and dedicated staff will give you the personalized care you deserve.

Gynecology care in our women's clinic

We provide a full range of women's healthcare services, including preventive care and family planning services such as:

  • Pap tests.
  • Well-woman exams.
  • Birth control options.

Our team also evaluates and treats conditions including:

  • Abnormal menstrual bleeding.
  • Pelvic pain.
  • Urinary incontinence.

We know that these conditions, which are often related, can disrupt your life. We're here to help.

If your gynecological condition could be helped by surgery, you can count on our extensive surgical expertise.

When possible, we use minimally invasive surgery techniques that allow for a quicker recovery. HGH is the only rural hospital in Nevada that offers this advanced, patient-friendly approach to gynecological surgery.

Our procedures include:

  • Treatment of common GYN conditions, such as endometriosis, pelvic pain and uterine fibroids.
  • Minimally invasive hysterectomy.
  • Reconstructive surgery for pelvic prolapse.
  • Treatment of urinary incontinence.

Obstetrics care focused on you

We provide complete high- and low-risk pregnancy care, from prenatal care (including prenatal testing) to birthing services (including vaginal birth after cesarean section) to postpartum care.

Our dedicated, woman-centered approach helps you feel confident in your careā€”and it's helped HGH achieve the lowest C-section rate and the lowest infant and maternal mortality rates in Nevada.
