The menopause clinic is part of the consolidated activity of the Casalmaggiore Gynecology and relies on the specialist skills of the team directed by Alberto Rigollimade up of gynecologists Mattia Gualdi e Federica Angeriflanked by midwives Anna Rignanese, Sabrina Cattabiani e Anna Stella Neighbors. Active every two weeks (every Monday from 9 to 13.30) it will be managed by Valentina Santamaria, gynecologist of the UO Obstetrics and Gynecology of Cremona.

WHAT IT DOES – Taking charge accompanies the patients from the first symptoms related to the climacteric to the post-menopause, to better manage the possible disorders and the many changes that affect women in this delicate phase of their life. The first interview can also be requested for preventive purposes: this allows any clinical problems that may arise to be intercepted in time. Menopause, in fact, does not only affect the gynecological sphere but can influence cardiovascular and neurological functions, which is associated with the possible development of oncological pathologies. An early diagnosis is the first step for a personalized therapeutic path, aimed at the prevention and promotion of women’s health.
