Obstetrics & Gynecology:
Our obstetrician-gynecologist specializes in obstetrics or OB-GYN, has expertise in female reproductive health, pregnancy, and childbirth. Some OB-GYNs offer a wide range of general health services similar to your primary care doctor. It deals in all aspects of pregnancy, from prenatal care to post-natal care. Others focus on the medical care of the female reproductive system. OB-GYNs also provide routine medical services and preventive screenings. Our Team of Expert Gynec doctor has studied obstetrics and gynecology. The term “OB-GYN” can refer to the doctor, an obstetrician-gynecologist, or to the sciences that the doctor specializes in, which are obstetrics and gynecology.
Our obstetrician delivers babies, whereas a gynecologist does not. An obstetrician can also provide therapies to help you get pregnant, such as fertility treatments. It is the medical specialty that encompasses the two subspecialties of obstetrics (covering pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period) and gynecology (covering the health of the female reproductive system – vagina, uterus, ovaries, and breasts). It is commonly abbreviated as OB-GYN or OB/GYN in US English and Canadian English, and as OBS and GYN.
Apna Multispecialty have a Team of OB/GYNs focused on health in all stages of pregnancy, from pre-conception to post-pregnancy. Residents learn about genetics, genetic counseling, and issues surrounding prenatal diagnoses. Many residency rotations also include in-depth instruction on ultrasonography, reproductive endocrinology, infertility, family planning, gynecologic surgery and gynecologic oncology. Having trained in both obstetrics and gynecology, our physicians practice both fields as OB/GYNs.
- Physicians who focus on gynecology do not deliver babies or treat pregnant women. They conduct cancer screenings, treat urinary tract issues, and more.
- Physicians who focus on obstetrics do not treat health issues outside pregnancy.
- OB/GYNs focus on both areas. Some OB/GYNs act as primary care physicians, in place of an internist or family practitioner.
