Northwestern Medicine is opening a first-of-its-kind center that brings together a multidisciplinary team of physicians, advanced practice nurses, certified sex therapists and pelvic floor therapists to address two specific areas of women’s health care.

“This new center specializes in two elements of a woman’s health – sexual health and menopause – that often go unaddressed either because the patient is reluctant to discuss symptoms with their physicians or the patient doesn’t have access to the correct clinical specialists and treatment options,” said Dr. Lauren Streicher, medical director of the new Center for Sexual Medicine and Menopause, in a press release.

“Sexual health and menopause are two complex areas of medicine that often require care from more than one specialist or may require procedures or therapies to address.”
