Learn about gynaecology, our gynaecologist, and wait times.
Gynaecology deals with the health of the female reproductive systems (vagina, uterus and ovaries) and the breasts. Conditions seen by gynaecologists include reproductive organ cancers, incontinence, amenorrhoea, dysmenorrhoea, infertility, menorrhagia, prolapse of pelvic organs, vaginal, cervix and uterus infections among others. The word "gynaecology" comes from the Greek γυνή (gyne), "woman", and -logia, "study".

Dr. Janice Lee Goerzen
Janice recently joined the Peak Medical team as a gynaecologist confining her practice to the office. After graduating from the U of A and U of C, Janice worked as an obstetrician and gynaecologist at the University Medical Clinic in Calgary for several years. After studying in England, and with Dr. Trussel, she established the Pediatric and Adolescent Gynaecology clinic and the Gynaecology service for abused children at Alberta Children’s Hospital. She has published widely and been Professor and Head of Womens’ Health in an Australian centre as well as having worked in women’s health as a clinical assistant professor and locum in many sites, both in Alberta and around the world.
She fills the time away from patients with showing and training her Border Collie “Hamish”, as well as spinning, weaving, felting, painting, practicing piano and harp, etc. She says the atmosphere in the Crowfoot clinic is wonderful and patients and new staff are welcomed and cared for with such high standards and sunny warmth. It’s truly a pleasure!
