Specialty Gynecology Practice in Chico, CA
Welcome to our web site. We appreciate your taking the time to visit.
Gregory L. Davis, M.D., is a board certified OB/GYN who specializes in gynecology and has his own gynecology practice. He started the Center for Excellence in Women's Health in the Chico/Paradise area in 1992. This was after completing a residency at Tripler Army Medical Center which was followed by a service obligation at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, and then concluded with a four year commitment at Phoenix Indian Medical Center as a payback to the US Public Health Service. Dr. Davis was recruited by Feather River Hospital in 1992 to establish a private practice.
The Center for Excellence in Women's Health focuses on accurate disease diagnosis and treatment, management of chronic conditions such as Interstitial Cystitis, hormone replacement therapy, and more.
- Laparoscopic Outpatient Hysterectomy
- Pelvic Floor Incontinence and Treatment
- Are You Experiencing Symptoms?
Dr. Davis was in the first group of surgeons trained in laparoscopic hysterectomy in 1992. He has been performing this procedure for twenty years, and now is offering them as an outpatient option at Skyway Surgery Center in Chico, California.
Dr. Davis is excited to offer pelvic floor Pilates, pronounced Pfilates (pronounced "fa-lä-teez"). It is a system of exercises that promotes the strengthening of the pelvic floor to aid in recovering or enhancing pelvic floor strength, essential for normal bladder and sexual function. The lack of bladder control is actually a fitness issue.
This fascinating principle is that if women do Pfilates exercises on a regular basis to strengthen the pelvic floor and actually get tested to find which specific muscles to use in these Pfilates exercises, they can have the same success rate of 85% with alleviating pelvic floor incontinence without the side effects of surgery. The fun part of this is that women also develop, in addition to control of their bladder, stronger inner thighs, lower abs and buttocks, and a stronger core. Not only do we offer specific testing to find the right exercise for you, but we offer classes in Pfilates that are available for all age groups five days a week.
Do you have periods that are so painful that you miss work or school on a regular basis? Are you bleeding so heavily that you have soiled your clothes or your bed? Do you leak urine every time you cough, laugh or sneeze and thought that only surgery would alleviate the problem? Do you void so frequently that you know where every clean bathroom is in your town and at work or at school? Are you afraid of menopause or perimenopause because you are concerned about taking estrogen, gaining weight, and breast cancer issues?
If you have answered yes to any of these (hopefully not all!) then you have come to the right gynecology practice. Each of these symptoms can be very troublesome but not to worry. Each of these conditions are what we specialize in and they are treatable. We see a wide range of ages for each of these symptoms, so let's take a look at each of these conditions and the diseases in detail together and develop a treatment plan that is right for you.
