Gynecology Services

Being a leader in Women’s Services is about more than delivering babies. Our specialists provide a full range of general gynecology services from yearly examinations and screenings to highly specialized procedures using minimally invasive techniques. As the region’s only academic OB/GYN program, Erlanger is also also heavily involved in research and clinical trials to improve care and outcomes. This includes:

  • Trials of a new treatment for preeclampsia
  • Studies to reduce pain following surgery, and
  • New ways to prevent and treat diabetes in pregnancy.

Erlanger partners with the UT College of Medicine to offer Tennessee’s only fellowship program in Minimally Invasive Gynecological Surgery. Our team also educates regional doctors and nurses through an annual symposium on Women’s Health.
