Care after your 40s

There are a number of medical conditions that are more common in women over the age of 50.

  • Digestive health – It is important to understand how the gastrointestinal (GI) tract works and to know that women have symptoms and issues with the GI track that are different from men. In fact, there are symptoms that may be associated with possible worsening of GI problems. These differences may present with unique symptoms in women for shared diseases or even unique diagnoses for women. Learn about treatments for digestive disorders.
  • Gynecologic surgery – Many of the conditions that affect your gynecologic, reproductive and sexual health can be detected early through proper screenings and tests. When necessary, we offer minimally invasive surgery for conditions affecting the female reproductive or urinary systems:
  • Heart health – We offer a wide range of cardiovascular services to detect and treat heart conditions. Our heart and vascular specialists are among the most experienced in the entire Rocky Mountain region. Learn more about heart health.

Is it time for a mammogram?

Take charge of your breast health through proper screenings and early detection. A mammogram can detect a lump in your breast months — and even years — before you can feel it. We offer the most advanced screening technologies available for the early detection of breast cancer: digital tomosynthesis (also known as 3-D mammography).
