Helpful Definition for: Gynecologists & Obstetricians

Gynecologists & obstetricians, in Saint George, are the two surgical–medical specialists who deal with the problems concerning female reproductive systems in their non-pregnant and pregnant state, respectively. While a gynecologist treats a patient for fertility & conception-related problems, obstetricians are consulted regarding the problems faced during pregnancy & child-birth. In most cases the professions merge i.e. same specialist is found to perform both the roles.

Gynecologists & obstetricians in Saint George need to be specially trained in the following categories:

1. Maternal-fetal medicine or perinatology — an obstetrician specializes in the medical and surgical management of high-risk pregnancies and surgery on the fetus to reduce its morbidity and mortality.

2. Reproductive endocrinology and infertility — a gynecologist focuses on the biological causes and interventional treatment of infertility.

2. Gynecological oncology — a gynecologist is trained to perform the medical and surgical treatment of women with cancers of the reproductive organs.

4. Urogynecology and pelvic reconstructive surgery — a gynecologist also specializes in diagnosis and surgical treatment of women with urinary incontinence and prolapse of the pelvic organs.

5. Family planning — a gynecologist receives training in contraception and artificial pregnancy termination (abortion).

6. Advanced laparoscopic surgery.

Gynecologists or obstetricians in Saint George must complete an ACGME-accredited fellowship and receive Certificate of Added Qualifications (CAQ) to receive recognition as a board-certified specialist.
