Gynecology in Austin at Modern Women’s Health

Dr. Jukes and Patient Looking at a Pamphlet


What is gynecology?

Gynecology is a medical specialty that deals with female reproductive health. The female reproductive system includes the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix, and vagina. Gynecologists are specialists who have expertise in diagnosing, treating, and managing conditions and diseases that negatively impact this system, such as menstrual disorders, infertility, sexually transmitted infections, and gynecological cancers. Gynecology in Austin also provides preventive care, such as regular pelvic exams and Pap tests, to aid women in maintaining optimal reproductive health.

Conditions treated with Gynecology


Endometriosis is a condition in which uterine cells grow outside of the uterus, potentially enveloping areas such as the ovaries and fallopian tubes. The bowels and bladder can also be affected. 

Ovarian cysts

Ovarian cysts are the result of fluid buildup inside the tissue, developing into a sac or “pocket.” 

Uterine fibroids 

Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous growths that develop in the muscle tissue of the uterus. If left untreated, they can put pressure on surrounding organs and cause issues like frequent urination. A hysterectomy can reverse this issue. 

Urinary incontinence

Urinary incontinence, or loss of bladder control, is a common condition that can range in severity. Some patients may experience some minor leakage when sneezing, while others have urges to go to the bathroom throughout the day. 


Perimenopause can develop any time from one’s late thirties to early fifties, lasting anywhere from two to eight years. When a woman has gone a year without a period she has entered the stage of menopause, which can happen any time from one’s mid-40s to their mid-50s (50 being the average).  


Menopause is most often defined as “cessation of periods for more than 12 months in women over the age of 40”. Once a woman is menopausal, she can decide to use estrogen and/or progesterone based on her symptoms.

Gynecology treatments offered 

Birth Control Pills

Birth control pills are designed to prevent unwanted pregnancies, reduce pain and blood flow during periods, lower the risk for uterine, colon, and ovarian cancer, mitigate mood swings, manage the timing of cycles, and decrease acne (both on the body and face). 


Hormones such as birth control pills or progesterone pills are considered to be the simplest treatment. However, some women are unable to take this route due to its side effects and other potential issues. 


A hysterectomy is the removal of the uterus and cervix but not necessarily the removal of the ovaries. This procedure is often carried out to address uterine fibroids and typically lasts anywhere from 45 to 60 minutes.

Abnormal Pap Smear

In some cases, the patient's pap smear may turn out to be abnormal. Some of the different types of pap smears include ASCUS, neg HPV, ASCUS, pos HPV, Atypical Glandular Cells of Undetermined Significance, Low-Grade Squamous Intraepithelial Lesion (LGSIL), Carcinoma In Situ (CIS), cervical cancer, and ASCUS, favor HGSIL. 

Women who are in menopause usually choose to begin treatment with estrogen and/or progesterone, based on their symptoms. Patients with more severe symptoms are often recommended to use hormone replacement therapy. 

Treatment for urinary incontinence

In these cases, urodynamics testing is used to assess the condition and determine the best course of action. Interventions such as pelvic floor therapy can ease the patient’s discomfort and reduce their urinary incontinence.


The LEEP (loop electrosurgical excision procedure) procedure is most often recommended when a pap smear reveals abnormal cervical cells (a warning sign for cancer). This procedure is designed to remove abnormal cells and allow new cell growth, with a success rate of 90 to 95%. 


Colposcopy is a procedure that involves applying vinegar solution over the cervix and carefully examining it. Any abnormalities are highlighted by the solution, as it turns white. If any lesions are discovered, a biopsy of the area will be taken for further evaluation.
