Alta Bates Summit helps mature women avoid illness by offering cardiovascular health and cancer screenings, bone densitometry (osteoporosis testing), and other such services.
Women with cardiovascular disease—which can present with different symptoms than in men—get advanced treatment, including minimally invasive heart surgery, offered by the hospital’s renowned Cardiovascular Center of Excellence. The center is staffed by a team of board-certified cardiologists and cardiac surgeons, vascular physicians, nurses, and therapists.
Alta Bates Summit’s Oncology Center of Excellence provides exceptional care for gynecologic cancers, with a surgical gynecological oncologist on staff. A gynecological oncologist can extract lymph nodes to gauge the spread of the disease, which is extremely important in guiding treatment.
At any age and every stage, Alta Bates Summit provides women with expert advice and advanced treatment. We have a lot of options and programs for women and we look at health care from the perspective of how we’d want to be treated ourselves.
