Gynecology for seniors is a rapidly expanding field because of the percentage of women aged 65 years and older has risen and is set to increase significantly in coming decades. The number of older women seeking both routine and seriGynecological Care for Seniorsous gynecologic care, as well as surgical mediations, can be expected to rise radically. The gynecologic needs of younger and older women differ and the gynecologic care we have routinely offered in the past does not always benefit in this older population of women. With rapidly changing technology and advances in gynecologic care, we must determine which interventions are appropriate and beneficial, identify unmet needs, and allocate resources accordingly.
