Specialties

Dr. Karen Houck has the following 2 specialties

  • Gynecologic Oncology

    Gynecologic oncologists specialize in cancers that occur in the female reproductive system. This includes ovarian cancer, cervical cancer and endometrial cancer, as well as the less commonly talked about female reproductive cancers like vulvar cancer, vaginal cancer and fallopian tube cancer.
    In addition to diagnosing the stage of your cancer and recommending treatment options, they’ll provide care throughout your treatment and help you manage your symptoms. They’ll often work closely with a pathologist and a radiologist to properly diagnose you and determine if your cancer is shrinking or spreading throughout treatment. They’re even trained to administer chemotherapy and to perform surgery to remove cancer when necessary.

  • Obstetrics and Gynecology

    An obstetrician & gynecologist, or OB/GYN, is a physician who cares for women throughout their pregnancies, straight through to the delivery of their baby (obstetrician). They also specialize in annual care, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the female reproductive system (gynecologist). Many physicians specialize in both of these fields in order to provide complete overall health services to women at every stage of life.

Wonderful Doctor! So glad I met her

Dr.Houck was extremely knowledgable and thorough in her approach. I had a medical condition that required surgery and had never been to hospital for one. But Dr.Houck totally made us feel comfortable and spent enough time explaining the procedure. She did an excellent job with the surgery and I am ailing pretty well now. May life bring you a reflection of care and kindness you have shown to others......Thank you SO much Doctor
