Gynecology for Youth and Teens

 

Surgery at Phoenix Children's Hospital

The Gynecology Program at Phoenix Children's Hospital provides females from birth to age 18 with the highest quality medical care. Staffed by a multidisciplinary team that includes pediatric physicians and nurses, our services focus on the specialty of gynecology, which is the examination, diagnosis, and treatment of female reproductive health issues. Often the care of our patients involves other services at the hospital, and staff in our program coordinates this comprehensive care.

We welcome all age groups (pediatric, adolescent, and young adults) and provide treatment for a wide variety of illnesses, as well as routine gynecological exams.
