Vanderbilt’s Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology Practice offers evidence-based gynecologic care for children and teenagers up to age 19. Young patients are evaluated and treated by full-scope, board-certified obstetrician-gynecologists who have special interest and expertise in pediatric and adolescent patients. Our youngest pediatric patients receive family-centered care in a positive atmosphere.
Patients with certain conditions may require surgical intervention. Depending on age, they will receive expert surgical care at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt or 4 South Gynecologic Surgery at Vanderbilt University Hospital.
With our adolescent patients, we seek to gradually build healthcare autonomy over concerns such as contraception and to establish early positive experiences in women’s health that will hopefully lead to healthy habits for life.
Our team features board-certified gynecologic surgeons to provide a precise level of care right here at Vanderbilt without having to see an outside specialist.
