Women's Health Issues

For Patients and Physicians:

Dr. Hosoda has an interest in dealing with Women's Healthcare issues in patients with medical problems or complex medical histories. These include:

For Women with Reproductive Concerns

*

Pre-pregnancy counseling and evaluation of women with chronic medical conditions and modifying their medical regimens allowing them to become pregnant and nurse with the least risk.

* Assistance with management of a pregnant patient's medical issues.

* Help for nursing mothers with medical problems in deciding on safe medical regimens, if possible, to allow them to continue nursing.

* Cooperation with obstetricians or fertility specialists in treating hormonal issues affecting pregnancy including Polycystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD), hypothyroidism and hyperprolactinemia.

For Women Facing Menopause

*

An evaluation of their risk for Hormone-Replacement Therapy (HRT) based on their personal and family histories.

* Helping women for whom HRT is medically contra-indicated in finding alternative symptomatic relief for their symptoms.

* Helping women with complex medical histories weigh the risks and benefits of HRT for them.
