Obstetrics and Gynecology

Two separate fields, obstetrics and gynecology, are combined to provide health care to women. The obstetrician cares for the woman before, during, and after her pregnancy; the gynecologist cares for disorders and diseases of the female reproductive tract. Physicians in this specialty combine both areas in their practices or concentrate on one; the training will encompass both obstetrics and gynecology.
