About Gynecology and Obstetrics

Gynecology and Obstetrics are the study of the female reproductive system. A gynecologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the reproductive organs. An obstetrician specializes in the health of a woman and her fetus during pregnancy. Often, a physician may be a certified gynecologist as well as obstetrician.

The most common conditions gynecologists and obstetricians diagnose and treat include:

  • Contraception
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Incontinence
  • Infection
  • Infertility

Gynecologists and obstetricians perform a variety of tests and treatments ranging from prescription medicine regimens to minimally invasive to major surgeries. The most common gynecology procedures include:

  • Cystoscopy
  • Hysterectomy
  • Oophorectomy
