Women’s Health

Care for yourself the way you care for others

Women’s Health Services is a comprehensive program focusing on a full spectrum of women’s health issues.

Dr. Skott Nielsen, OB/GYN, provides consultative services to area family practice physicians, as well as consultative services for patients, including:

  • Abnormal bleeding
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Minimally invasive surgery
  • Premenstrual disorders
  • Infertility
  • Menopause
  • Prolapse problems
  • And other women’s health issues

We know today’s women lead busy lives, so we make your wait as short as possible. Once your appointment begins, your time with Dr. Nielsen is never rushed.

Minimally invasive hysterectomy

We offer a minimally invasive laparoscopic hysterectomy, which involves only four tiny incisions, including one through the belly button where a tube with a camera on the tip is inserted. The camera magnifies the organs, making it easier for doctors to operate. Because the procedure is less invasive than a vaginal hysterectomy, women experience less pain, recover more quickly, and have less scarring.

The latest in breast cancer screening

CMH is pleased to offer Genius 3D tomosynthesis mammography. In addition to better patient comfort, our new state-of-the-art machine provides a 20-65% increase in invasive breast cancer detection compared to conventional mammography.

Astounding precision and a better, more -in-depth image. Digital tomosynthesis (3D) captures multiple X-ray images of each breast from different angles. By making finer details more visible, 3D mammography offers up to a 40% decrease in false-positive recalls. The system has revolutionized the mammography screening process.

“Better sensitivity with digital tomosynthesis will decrease patient recalls and lead to more lives saved from screening mammography.” – CMH Radiologist Peggy Rouleau, MD
