Medical professionals are fully aware that taking care of the unique needs of women is vital to the health of a community. Hospitals in Illinois offer comprehensive services for the needs of women during all the varying stages of life. One thing they do well is provide a warm and inviting setting for many of their diagnostic and treatment facilities. These facilities provide the privacy needed for women to maintain a level of individuality during treatments and visits. Some of the services provided in the women’s diagnostic center include breast health programs, mammography using a computer aided diagnostic system (sometimes referred to as CAD), stereotactic biopsy, infertility services, four dimensional ultrasound, one of the best cardiac health programs in the state, menopause, arthritis and osteoporosis screening and testing to name a few.
Some other services provided by hospitals include the weight control help including the bariatrics program and the cardiac health program. The center focuses on monitoring health and for those that need it the women will find state of the art care and surgery options. The latest in heart bypass surgery includes the use of a da Vinci robot to ease the trauma delivered to the patient through a number of refinements in the surgical procedure. With the assistance of a robot the surgeon can make finer and smaller incisions that lead to less blood loss and less scarring. The robot also offers many more benefits to the patient and is one of the valuable tools used to assist those women who need to be repaired before moving on to living a healthy life.
Another valuable tool is the use of a digital mammography system. This advanced diagnostic tool is a part of the comprehensive breast imaging program that includes screening and diagnostic mammography, computer-aided detection, breast ultrasound, non-invasive outpatient breast biopsies, needle localizations and breast MRI with computer aided design equipment. The advanced tools have unsurpassed quality images that lead to early detection and diagnosis of breast cancer, reduced patient exam time and decreased number of mammogram callbacks. All of this leading to a healthier society of women. Of course these are just the ones that stand out due to a focus on helping women through all of the different stages of their life. Some centers also offer all of the standard treatments available to both women and men.
