The Palmetto Health Women's Center works with the University of South Carolina School of Medicine Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology to offer a full range of obstetric and gynecologic care for women of all ages. Services provided range from yearly examinations and screenings to highly specialized procedures.

Services                                         

Some specific services include:

  • Obstetric care for high-risk pregnancies
  • Adolescent OB/GYN care
  • Birth control procedures, such as:
    • Essure Placement - inserts into fallopian tubes for permanent birth control
    • Nexplanon - insertion of hormonal implant for long-acting birth control
    • Mirena, Skyla and Paragard intrauterine device implantation
  • Cervical Cryotherapy - procedure that destroys abnormal tissue on the cervix by freezing it

Programs

  • Stork's Nest - a prenatal care incentive program for expecting mothers that includes classes and one-on-one education

The nurse navigator serves as a liaison between the physician's office and Palmetto Health Richland as families prepare for the birth of their newborn.
