As women, maintaining our health requires much more than taking care of our hormones and reproductive systems. It means finding health care providers who understand the other ways that women’s bodies are unique and who have the knowledge to address our special needs.
At Johns Hopkins women’s health encompasses diseases that appear exclusively in women, problems that occur more frequently in women and those that appear different in women and men. Your heart, lungs, brain and skin differ from men’s enough to affect the symptoms of certain illnesses as well as their treatment. No one understands this better than the experts at Johns Hopkins Medicine who apply the latest gender-specific knowledge to conditions ranging from lung disease to chronic pain.
Johns Hopkins offers a full spectrum of traditional women’s health care services, including cutting-edge therapies from infertility and high-risk pregnancies to breast and gynecologic cancers. And, our physicians also excel at treating women for cardiovascular disease, gastroenterology and image enhancement. They provide comprehensive care for multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, chronic pain, depression and a host of other illnesses more common in women than in men.
This is part of our tradition. For more than a century, Johns Hopkins has earned international acclaim by transforming our research advances into premium treatments. And our reputation stands firm: We’re proud that U.S. News & World Report has consistently ranked us (The Johns Hopkins Hospital) the No. 1 hospital in the nation.
