Gynecology
Gynecology is the branch of medicine dealing with the health of the female reproductive organs. The specialty involves infertility evaluations, surgical therapies and evaluation of pelvic pain and its treatment.

Mammography
Lake Pointe Medical Center has two Mammography Suites, we are certified by the American College of Radiology (ACR) and the Food & Drug Administration (FDA).

It is very important that a woman at the age of 40 has yearly mammogram screenings.

There are two types of mammograms:

  • Screening - no symptoms/or problems.
  • Diagnostic - experiencing problems such as lumps, thickening, swelling, and nipple discharge.

Other procedures performed are:

  • Needle Localization's
  • Stereotactic


Breast Cancer
The most common cancer afflicting women is breast cancer. Every three minutes a woman learns she has breast cancer. The best treatment for detecting breast cancer is early diagnosis. This can be accomplished by conducting self-breast examinations. If a lump is detected, a mammogram is then scheduled and if necessary, a biopsy is performed to determine if the cells are cancerous. Four out of five breast lumps are benign. However, if the lump is cancerous, several options are available. Among the options are surgery. At Lake Pointe Medical Center, the general surgeons perform breast conserving surgery, modified radical mastectomies, and simple or total mastectomy. These procedures combined with Adjuvant Therapy have proven to be very successful.

Childbirth Classes - We understand the importance of preparing for delivery during this most exciting time in your life. To assist those first-time parents, we offer comprehensive childbirth classes monthly, covering such topics as stages of labor, methods of delivery, baby and post partum care, breast and bottle feeding, and many more. Each class concludes with a tour of the OB Unit. Please call 972-412-3296 to make your reservation. All parents-to-be are invited to tour our facility and visit our nursing staff who are always happy to answer any questions you may have.

Our pre-registration process allows for immediate admittance on the day of delivery and provides our staff with access to vital information on both mother and child.

We are also staffed with a certified Lactation Consultant and all nursery and postpartum staff have attended the Texas Department of Health Breastfeeding course to assist you in promoting a good start to your breastfeeding.

We offer the birthing partner the option of rooming with the mother and baby. Open visitation is available from 9:00AM to 9:00PM on the Postpartum floor. Visitation in Labor and Delivery is 24 hours a day.
