Why do I need a pediatric gynecologist?
Young women and girls have special gynecology needs that differ from those of adults. A pediatric gynecologist is experienced in treating the unique gynecology problems of children and adolescents. These specialists are trained in obstetrics and gynecology and offer an in-depth level of knowledge and expertise for conditions affecting the female reproductive system. Issues like growth and development, sexual health, pregnancy prevention and menstrual disorders and others can be addressed by a pediatric gynecologist. At The University of Kansas Health System, our board-certified physicians are qualified to evaluate and treat young girls and women with these problems.
