Over a nine-month pregnancy you, your physician and your nurse practitioner form an important bond. Visit the Obstetrics section to learn more.

  • Gynecology
    Ensuring good gynecologic health throughout your life—from the teen years to the post-menopausal years—is our specialty.  Regardless of the location you choose, you can be sure that your physician or nurse practitioner is nothing short of an expert in your gynecologic health care. Visit the Gynecology section for information on the annual exam, vaccines, in-office procedures and answers to frequently-asked questions.

  • Urology
    The Virginia Women's Continence Center, an on-site division of Virginia Women's Center, offers state-of-the-art evaluation and treatment of female urology issues, from incontinence to chronic infections. Visit the Urogynecology section to learn more.

  • High-risk Obstetrics
    At Virginia Women’s Center, we think maternal-fetal medicine is so important that we have three specialists on staff. Drs. Troyer, Love and DeMay see patients for high-risk pregnancy, prenatal diagnosis and advanced ultrasound diagnosis. Our ultrasound suites are AIUM accredited. Visit the High-risk Obstetrics section to learn more.

  • Obstetrical Genetic Counseling
    Genetics is the branch of science that deals with how traits are passed from parent to child through genes. Our genetic counselor works with mothers and couples to explain the array of prenatal testing options available and helps to interpret test results. Our genetic counselor works closely with our maternal-fetal medicine specialists and obstetricians.

  • Ultrasound
    All of our on-site ultrasound suites are AIUM accredited.

  • In-office Procedures
    At Virginia Women's Center, our physicians are able to perform some surgical procedures in the comfort of our offices. To learn more about the types of procedures that can be performed in the office, visit the in-office procedures section.

  • Mammography
    The Virginia Women’s Center mammography suites at Henrico Doctors' Forest Medical Plaza, Mechanicsville and John Rolfe Commons are digital screening facilities. We see patients for annual screening mammograms. Dr. Ellen Shaw de Paredes and her staff of breast imagers handle imaging interpretation for all Virginia Women’s Center patients. Your mammogram will always be performed by a registered mammography technologist. Visit the Mammography section for more information.

  • Bone Health
    Bone-density testing is an important aspect of preventing osteoporosis. We use a technology called Dual-energy Absorptiometry-or DXA-to measure bone mineral content and density of specific bone sites most susceptible to fracture. Visit the Bone Health section for more information.

  • Psychology
    Our onsite counselors are available to help with the challenges of depression, stress management, anxiety, eating disorders, post-partum depression, parenting, perimenopause, menopause and more. Visit the Psychology page.

  • Nutrition
    Our nurse practitioners are available to assist women who develop gestational diabetes during pregnancy as well as any patient who may be interested in programs for healthy weight management. Visit the Nutrition section for more information.

  • Onsite Labs
    Routine blood tests shouldn't require the inconvenience of another stop. Each of our offices has an onsite lab. And you can be assured that your doctor or nurse will call you back with the results in a timely fashion.

  • Clinical Research
    Clinical research is a vital aspect of medicine today. Virginia Women's Center patients have a special opportunity to be a part of treatments that shape the treatments of tomorrow while receiving exams, diagnostic tests and physician advice at no cost. Visit Clinical Research Studies.
