    About Coffee With CarePoint

    This will be a monthly series at the CarePoint Hospital in Hoboken, focusing on a variety of women’s issues. It’s a free event, open to the public, where women can get together, ask questions, and get medical advice from doctors. The first event is May 6th from 6:00-8:00PM at the Institute for Women’s Health in Hoboken on the topic of foot health. Click here for more info!

    Why Foot Health?

    Apart from the occasional pedicure {that better be sanitary!}, many of us tend to use and abuse our feet—maybe because “foot health” has a less-than-sexy connotation. But hey, commuting in pumps can make your feet hurt like hell for good reason. Bunions and plantar fasciitis happen to many women, according to the doctors at CarePoint, especially after hitting the pavement in our running shoes, which has a bigger impact on our feet than you might think. Research shows that most people have a foot injury of some sort by age 40, and women undergo the majority of common-problem foot surgeries. So with all that on the horizon {sounds lovely, eh?}, you may want to stop by Coffee With CarePoint just to check in and make sure you’re in the clear. 

     

    The Institute for Women’s Health

    Wanting to broaden the options for women’s health in Hudson County, Carepoint Health started the Institute for Women’s Health in October of 2017, a care center designed specifically for women, by women. The center is located on the first floor of the hospital at 308 Willow Avenue in Hoboken. It started with a focus on pelvic care {some of these issues could be but are not limited to endometriosis, incontinence, pelvic pain, and infertility}. Within the year, the Institute for Women’s Health has expanded to have other specialists who cater to breast health, vein problems, bone density, sports medicine, and overall female care.

    According to Dr. Meika, the Chief Medical Officer of Carepoint, “the Women’s Center is a one-stop shop. Surgery, lab work, and radiology are all done in-house so there is no need for multiple office visits.” There are also Health Designers on hand to help guide you through services.

     

    Doctors that are currently on staff at The Institute for Women’s Health:

    -Dr. Andrea Vidali: Focus on endometriosis and pelvic pain
