New Women's Health Program

Published February 2006

Mira Aubuchon, MD, assistant clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology at UC, is leading a new program to treat polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) at the St. Luke Hospitals. The program is one of only four currently available nationwide.

PCOS is a hormone imbalance disorder that interferes with a woman's normal ovulation, which can cause abnormal periods, diabetes, obesity, acne, excessive hair growth, depression, sleep disorders and infertility, among other symptoms.

During the six-week program, patients will be treated for their reproductive needs and will receive personalized nutrition and exercise evaluations and recommendations. For more information, call the Center for Reproductive Health at the St. Luke Hospitals at(859) 962-4687.
