Gynecology

Norton Children’s Gynecology in Louisville is the only practice in Kentucky dedicated to gynecological care of children, adolescents and young women. Norton Children’s Gynecology’s highly skilled pediatric and adolescent gynecologists understand that girls and teens need care that’s designed just for them.

Our specialists work with girls and teens to navigate the normal changes and ups and downs that happen before, during and after puberty.

We understand that communication on such a sensitive topic is just as difficult as it is important. Our team knows how to foster conversations with children, teens and parents on topics that are far easier to avoid.

Norton Children’s pediatric gynecologists help patients and their families understand a diagnosis and treatment. That leads to better outcomes.

Young patients visiting a gynecologist can be nervous. That’s why we have a therapy dog in the office most Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Visiting with the dog is optional. Let us know when you arrive for your appointment if you are interested in meeting our little labradoodle, Rosebud.

Why does my child need to see a gynecologist?

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommends a preventive health visit (well-girl visit) between the ages of 13 and 15. Only if there are strong reasons to indicate a pelvic exam is necessary will the gynecologist conduct one.

The goal of a well-girl visit is to promote healthy habits, education and screening. It is an opportunity for teens to establish a relationship with a gynecologist, evaluate their current health (patterns and regularity of periods, cramping, etc.) and to receive information and resources for staying healthy and developing healthy habits.

Louisville’s only pediatric teaching hospital

Norton Children’s Gynecology hosts the Pediatric Adolescent Gynecology Training Program, where University of Louisville Medical School residents can learn alongside Norton Children’s gynecologists.
