Dr. William Dennis is an OB/GYN who proudly meets the obstetrics and routine gynecologic needs of his Charleston patients. However, he also treats serious female health problems, such as fibroids, endometriosis, chronic bacterial vaginosis, and urinary incontinence, with a variety of approaches, including surgery. Before you consult a specialist or seek a treatment that your insurance company might not cover, call Dr. Dennis first.
The women's health issues you face at 18 are different than those that will plague you at 72, but Dr. Dennis addresses your concerns at whatever age and stage of life you are. Whether you need a birth control prescription or Hormone Replacement Therapy, Dr. Dennis aims to improve the quality of your life with compassionate care.
Do you lose urine when you laugh, cough, or sneeze? About one in four women have the same problem. Dr. Dennis will present conservative approaches such as pelvic muscle retraining or the use of a pessary, as well as surgical options. Whichever you decide, he will help you develop an action plan you are comfortable with.
If heavy, painful periods disrupt your life every month, or if you suffer from your regular periods, you need a consultation from our caring Charleston OB/GYN team. What you are experiencing could be signs of more serious conditions such as fibroids, endometriosis, or a sexually transmitted disease. Dr. Dennis will start with an ultrasound as he determines the cause.
Once you are past menopause, you may experience symptoms that disrupt your life. Though estrogen/progesterone replacement has come under attack in recent years, Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) may be a solution to your problems. Dr. Dennis will correct the misconceptions surrounding HRT and work to find a solution you are comfortable with.
An educator at heart, Dr. Dennis wants to help you as a patient understand and take control of your health issues. Both a clinician and a surgeon, he presents all options you need to effectively manage your healthcare. We invite you to look at our pages about Surgery and In Office Procedures to view the wide range of options we offer at our Charleston OB/GYN practice.
