    Urogynecology Services
    For women experiencing gynecologic problems and pelvic floor issues—such as accidental urine or bowel leakage (incontinence), pelvic pain, menstrual problems, endometriosis and others—a specialized treatment plan can offer much-needed relief.

    Artesia General Hospital is proud to offer urogynecology services, led by Scott Beard, MD, FACOG, FPMRS. Learn more about the many conditions Dr. Beard treats, or call to schedule an appointment.

    3D Mammography
    Artesia General Hospital is pleased to offer the most accurate technology for your next mammogram: the Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exam.

    3-Dimensional mammography provides better, earlier breast cancer detection, finding 20-65% more invasive breast cancers than traditional, 2D mammography alone. It has been proven to reduce false positives by up to 40%—which means fewer unnecessary callbacks, scans and biopsies.
