Obstetrics & Gynecology

What is Obstetrics & Gynecology?

If you are a woman, young or old, at some point in your life, you will probably want or need to see an Obstetrics and Gynecology physician, often referred to as an Ob/Gyn. Ob/Gyn’s are often trained together with a four-year medical degree then continuing on to a four-year residency program. Obstetricians care for women and their babies during pregnancy, childbirth, and provide postpartum care to mom after delivery. Gynecologists specialize in women's reproductive health including menstruation, menopause, hormonal changes, and more. We work with adolescents to develop good health habits. We remain with our patients when they decide to start families, through pregnancy and childbirth, and we continue to provide care through the transition into menopause and towards our patients’ later years.

What Does an Obstetrician and Gynecologist Do?

  • Obstetricians do not treat diseases specifically. They specialize in the treatment of complications that coincide with pregnancy and childbirth. An obstetrician specializes in managing the care of women during pregnancy, labor and birth, as well as equipped to handle emergency situations. Obstetricians provide care for women during pregnancy whether their pregnancy is normal or high risk.
  • A gynecologist specializes in the care and diagnosis of a female's reproductive system and breasts. They may provide long-term care to women and often act as a primary care physician.
