"There's POWER in prevention". Our goal is to prevent cancer in the greater Washington, D.C. area. Rockville Gynecology provides top-quality GYN care which is individualized to each patient. We offer the myRisk blood test (formerly BRCA) to women who have a family history of cancer. We also offer BrevagenPlus, which is a mouth swab that checks to see who is at higher risk of breast cancer. Knowledge is power, and we aim to empower each of our patients with information to help them make smart decisions about their health. If surgery is required, we specialize in minimally-invasive GYN surgery, including daVinci surgery, to allow for less pain, fewer complications, and a quicker recovery. Our mission is to improve the quality of women's lives. If heavy bleeding is a problem, we offer in-office Novasure, a procedure to decrease the amount of flow. It is done under IV sedation, so there's no pain, and only one day recovery. We also perform Essure in office, which is the "modern way" to tie tubes. For the procedure, a small coil is placed through the cervix into the opening of each tube using a camera. It can be done under local anesthesia. The procedure takes 5-10 minutes, with mild to moderate cramping for 1 day, and the patient can drive themselves home. "There's POWER in prevention." We help to prevent cancer, and prevent pregnancy, when the time is appropriate. The providers at Rockville Gynecology welcome the opportunity to partner with you to keep you healthy.

Dr. Young is a wonderful provider. She explains options in an extremely clear and caring way. Her office staff and surgical coordinator are also very helpful. I am post op now and very glad that I had Dr. Young perform the surgery that she did.
