Benign (Noncancerous) Conditions

In addition to conducting routine annual gynecologic exams, the physicians at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center’s Department of Gynecology offer the latest diagnosis and treatment services for benign (noncancerous) conditions such as:

  • Abnormal pap screenings

  • Postmenopausal bleeding

Many gynecologic conditions cause pain and symptoms that severely impact a woman’s quality of life. But often, women will suffer in silence, either because they are too busy caring for others, are anxious about seeking care, or believe that nothing can be done to help them.

We truly listen to your concerns, and we customize our treatments to best match your needs. Trust Lahey’s gynecologists for high-quality, compassionate, and attentive women’s health services.

Menopause & Sexual Health

Lahey Hospital & Medical Center’s Department of Gynecology offers a range of menopause and sexual health services for women. We provide compassionate, professional care, personalized for each woman’s needs.

Menopause Care at Lahey

Menopause marks the end of a woman’s menstrual cycles. Due to chemical changes within the female body at this time, menopause can cause symptoms that include hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, and mood swings.

Lahey gynecologist Elizabeth M. Prusak, MD, has advanced training and certification in treating menopause symptoms. She works with each woman to develop a care plan to ease symptoms and support overall health and well-being after the childbearing years.

Sexual Health Services at Lahey

Sexual dysfunction can greatly impact a woman’s quality of life. Factors or conditions that interfere with a woman’s ability to have or to enjoy sexual intercourse can happen at any point in her life.

Our gynecologists can diagnose causes of sexual dysfunction in women and work closely with experts at Lahey’s Center for Sexual Function, which is committed to helping women, men, and couples with problems related to sexual function and reproductive health.
