Not many women look forward to their annual exam, much less, problem-related visits. Women living on and beyond the Blue Hill Peninsula find an ally in Dr. Kathleen Ober, MD, FACOG, MMM. Dr. Ober loves working with women of all ages, and has a special way of helping them feel at ease, regardless of what brings them to her practice at Blue Hill Women’s Health Care. Dr. Ober’s sense of humor, coupled with her direct, yet compassionate approach are the perfect complement to her expertise in women’s health, and, in particular, gynecologic surgery. Her patients receive highly personalized and exceptional care.
In addition to annual exams, menopause management, family planning, and the more typical services associated with women’s health, Dr. Ober specializes in state-of-the-art, minimally invasive surgery. Her techniques include pelvic floor procedures to reduce incontinence, laparoscopic-assisted vaginal hysterectomies to treat endometriosis and chronic pelvic pain, and office based procedures such Essure sterilization. Many of Dr. Ober's surgical procedures reduce post-operative discomfort, minimize recovery time, and are less expensive than approaches such as a traditional abdominal hysterectomy.
“Women are busier than ever,” says Dr. Ober. “They want their gynecologic problems diagnosed and treated efficiently and effectively with minimal disruption of their daily lives. This may mean a sterilization procedure without an incision and general anesthesia or outpatient surgery to eliminate heavy periods without hysterectomy. Patients have lots of options available to them. I make sure patients understand their options and help them make the best decisions base on their unique situation.”
