COVID-19 and Pregnancy - An Update for our Patients
We would like to take this opportunity to update you about your maternity care during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and assure you that our dedicated team of expert nurses, physicians and midwives are committed to providing safe and effective care to every patient who walks through our doors.
We are dedicated to providing medical and imaging care to every woman that walks through our doors. From the state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment equipment at our Women’s Breast Center to individualized treatment program for pelvic floor rehabilitation, we provide high quality women's health care services.
Breast health and imaging
At HCA Houston North Cypress, we offer breast health services through a range of imaging, diagnosis and interventional procedures, such as 3D mammography, breast ultrasound and MRI. In addition, our High Risk Breast Clinic provides prevention, early detection and management for patients identified as having an increased risk for breast cancer.
Traditional open gynecologic surgery uses a large incision for access to the uterus and surrounding anatomy. This open technique comes with significant pain, trauma, long recovery process and threatens the surrounding organs and nerves. Fortunately, less invasive options are available at HCA Houston North Cypress.
Some gynecologic procedures enable surgeons to access target anatomy using a vaginal approach, which may not require an external incision. For complex hysterectomies and other gynecologic procedures, robot-assisted surgery may be the most effective, least invasive treatment option. Through tiny, one to two inch centimeter incisions, surgeons can operate with greater precision and control, minimizing the pain and risk associated with large incisions.
Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation
Pelvic floor Rehabilitation Therapy is an individualized treatment program to strengthen and re-educate the pelvic floor muscles. Over activity of the pelvic floor can result in pelvic pain and under the activity of the pelvic floor can result in:
- Urinary incontinence
- Urinary urgency
- Pelvic organ prolapse
Physical Therapists are experts in the muscular training and manual therapy to optimize recovery and function. We personally interview each woman who is referred, paying particular attention to the contributing behavioral factors and characteristics of her bladder dysfunction.
An internal assessment, EMG evaluation to measure the electrical activity of a muscle, and bladder diary are included in the initial assessment (as indicated). We send reports involving findings and progress in therapy at regular intervals to the referring physician.
We treat women of all ages. Our services are typically covered by most health insurances.

Varicose vein treatment
Varicose veins are swollen, gnarled veins that most frequently occur in the legs, ankles and feet. They are caused when blood circulating through the lower limbs does not properly return to the heart but instead pools up in the distended veins.
Varicose veins treatment is performed at our Vein Center on an outpatient basis. It involves inserting a closure catheter into the diseased vein through a small opening in the skin. The tiny catheter powered by radio-frequency energy delivers heat to the vein wall. As the thermal energy is delivered, the vein wall shrinks and the vein is sealed closed. Once the diseased vein is closed, blood is re-routed to other healthy veins.
