Learn more about Obstetrics & Gynecology Specialists

An obstetrician-gynecologist (Ob/Gyn) specializes in the health needs of adolescent and adult women. Ob/Gyn doctors specialize in the medical and surgical care of the female reproductive system. Ob/Gyn doctors often serve as a woman’s primary care doctor and they care for pregnant women and their unborn children.

Ob/Gyn doctors provide general healthcare, preventive care, and treatment of diseases and conditions associated with the female reproductive system and pregnancy. An Ob/Gyn typically:

 
  • Evaluates a patient’s medical history and educates the patient about wellness and disease prevention

  • Performs reproductive health and cancer screenings, including pelvic exams, Pap tests, breast exams, and sexually transmitted disease screenings

  • Provides care during pregnancy, labor and delivery, and postpartum (after delivery)

  • Provides family planning and contraceptive counseling

  • Orders and interprets laboratory and imaging tests and prescribes medications

  • Diagnoses and treats acute and chronic diseases and conditions that affect women’s health and reproduction, including gynecological cancer, infertility, and menopause

  • Screens, treats and monitors a range of conditions, such as hypertension, diabetes, cancer, depression, high-risk behaviors, and sexual dysfunction

  • Performs surgical procedures on the reproductive system and urinary tract, such as hysterectomy, episiotomy, and dilation and curettage (D and C)
