Consultations for  women (Gynaecological department)

From the very beginning of “ARS” medical company the Gynaecological department functioned as a separate structure. During this period it has become one of the most professional and modern ambulatory gynaecology departments   in Latvia, introducing the latest technologies and treatment methods. ARS_ginekoloģija

Every day, four top class gyneacologists and specialists of sonography offer fetal and pelvic sonographical examinations for pathologic diagnosis. We devote special attention to first and second trimester sonographical examinations. For pregnant women we offer not only standard sonography, but also 3-D and 4-D sonographical examinations, which means that we obtain three-dimensional and  moving three-dimensional images during the ultrasound examination. 3-D and 4-D ultrasound is used for the vizualization of the fetus’ superficial structures. For example, the additional examination for facial development abnormalities in case of skeletal malformation (abnormalities in the skeleton’s development). This type of sonography has been used in Latvia since April 2005. In ARS, Dace Ezeriņa is responsible for performing 3-D and 4-D sonographical examinations.

The E.Gulbja laborotory is located in the same building as the “ARS” gynaecological department, so our patients can quickly and easily make an analysis and our doctors can promptly receive their results.

There are also other examinations and specialist consultations available:

  • Breast sonography;
  • EKG;
  • Magnetic resonance imaging, and other examinations.
