Plaza OB/GYN provides exceptional healthcare services to prevent and treat gynecological diseases and disorders affecting Houston women.
At Plaza OB/GYN, our doctors are driven to diagnose gynecological diseases and treat female medical conditions affecting many women in the Houston area. Our philosophy to provide compassionate, state-of-the-art gynecological and obstetrical care for women highlights why we are one of the top OBGYN Houston offices. Our leading-edge gynecological treatments have helped women overcome numerous health challenges and live more comfortable and satisfying lives.
Our OBGYN Houston doctors have a special interest in managing Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, a medical condition that affects many women and leads to several conditions (acne, weight gain, lack of regular menstrual cycles and infertility). PCOS, which can be familial, creates a hormone imbalance and can also lead to infertility, diabetes and heart disease. Genetically passed down in families, PCOS can be controlled with a healthy lifestyle and hormone therapy if needed. We offer complete evaluation and PCOS treatment plans for women in the Houston and surrounding areas.
Dr. Balat values working with many couples who are unable to have a child and helps them achieve the life-changing moment of becoming parents. There are several causes of infertility, such as hormonal imbalance leading to ovulation problems, tubal blockage preventing fertilization of the embryo, or finally, male factors including low sperm count or motility. After all of the studies are done, Dr. Balat consults with the couple and helps them achieve their goal of parenthood by tailoring a plan involving medications, surgery, or both for treatment.
Uterine fibroids, also called myomas, are tumors that can grow inside, outside, or within the wall of the uterus. Although most women with fibroids have no symptoms at all, some fibroids can cause pelvic pain, heavy menstrual bleeding, frequent urination, infertility, or recurrent pregnancy loss. Although many women with non-symptomatic fibroids do not require treatment, surgery to remove the tumors can provide relief for those who are experiencing uncomfortable side effects or are having trouble with pregnancy.
Vaginal prolapse occurs when the upper vaginal wall drops down into the vaginal canal or outside of the vagina causing pelvic heaviness or pressure. It is typically caused by the weakness of the pelvic and vaginal tissuess. It can be corrected through vaginal prolapse surgery which attaches the top of the vagina to the lower back spine, or the ligaments of the pelvis.
Endometriosis is the most common cause of pelvic pain and menstrual cramps in a woman. It is a gynecological condition in which the cells from the lining of the uterine canal (where the menstrual flow develops) appear and flourish into the pelvis. Usually women with Endometriosis end up seeing an average of 4 - 6 gynecologists before they are diagnosed. There are about 10 million women suffering from this condition. Both medical and surgical treatments are available to patients. Dr. Balat is a lifetime member of the Endometriosis Association and offers his patients a wide range of medical and surgical treatment options.
Menstrual disorders are disruptive physical and/or emotional symptoms just before and during menstruation, including heavy bleeding, missed periods and unmanageable mood swings. These disorders include abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB), dysmenorrhea, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and premenstrual dysphonic disorder (PMDD). Once your symptoms are accurately diagnosed, your doctor can help you choose the best treatment to make your menstrual cycle manageable.
In women, urinary incontinence, or the inability to control the bladder, is usually due to weakening of the pelvic muscles from pregnancy, childbirth, trauma, radiation, prior surgery, muscle damage, or hormonal changes causing the bladder and urethra to relax from their normal positions. The sudden pressure from coughing, sneezing, laughing, or simple lifting can cause accidental loss of urine as well. Depending on the underlying problem and severity of the condition, urinary incontinence can be controlled and treatment may involve exercises, medication or surgery.
Osteoporosis, a potentially crippling disease characterized by the loss of bone tissue and a susceptibility to fracture, afflicts an estimated 25 million Americans, 80% of whom are women. Today, doctors are better equipped to detect and treat bone loss in its earliest stages, so as to prevent the disease or lessen its impact. Also, several drug therapies, now on the market, have been shown to be clinically effective in slowing down or reversing the bone-loss process.
