Menopause is the most common endocrine problem in women. All women will experience it.
To a considerable degree, menopause is a creation of modern medicine. Until relatively recently, most women did not live long enough to go through menopause.
As women are living longer, they can expect to spend a considerable portion of their life during which their ovaries are no longer capable of producing estrogen. Their bodies pay a heavy price because of this unless they are treated properly.
Unfortunately, many women have been frightened away from estrogen therapy because of the “information” they have received from either her various magazines, newspapers, or the 11 o’clock news. The problem is that the vast majority of this “information” is wrong.
My office offers a comprehensive evaluation and treatment program for women going through menopause or who are already past menopause to identify and correct any problems they have based upon the most up-to-date information available. Please contact me if you have any questions or to schedule an appointment.
