What is Gynecology?

Gynecology is the branch of medicine that focuses on the female reproductive system.

What is a Gynecologist?

A gynecologist is a doctor with advanced training to diagnose and treat diseases of the female reproductive system. Gynecologists may also practice obstetrics (the management of pregnancy), but mainly focus on the non-pregnancy aspects of reproductive health. Gynecologists can perform surgeries such as hysterectomies or oophorectomies, or provide routine care such as pap smears or breast exams.
