Obstetrics and Gynecology

Obstetrics and gynecology are the medical practices that cover giving birth, high risk pregnancy, and pelvic pain during pregnancy, along with female reproductive organ disorders such as endometrial cancer, dysmenorrhoea, and a prolapsed bladder. “What is an obstetrician?” and “What is a gynecologist?” will be explained on this website. While obstetrics covers women from early pregnancy to labor and delivery the gynecologist covers the needs of women that have disorders associated with the reproductive organs throughout life. The gynecologist may be trained in gynecologic oncology and perform vaginal surgery such as a d and c procedure or a minimally invasive robotic hysterectomy. The top gynecologic surgeon Dr. Simon Weiss has created this series of obstetrics and gynecology websites to help women and their families throughout the world to quickly understand the new options that are available in today’s obstetrics and gynecology practice.

Obstetrics and gynecology, while considered separate medical practices, are usually dually performed by an obgyn doctor. Having the training and experience in both obstetrics and gynecology bolsters the understanding of how each medical decision made will affect health down the road. This series of medical websites has been created to help people understand their options that are available in today’s obstetrics and gynecology practice. “What is a hysterectomy and What is robotic surgery?” are specialty websites with detailed information on specific disorders and treatments. These websites are brought to you by the world renowned doctors at the international Specialty in Obstetrics and Gynecology Center with locations in South Florida serving Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, and Palm Beach residents.

Obesity and pregnancy can be managed by our obstetricians as is high risk pregnancy. Some of the high risk pregnancy conditions include: preeclampsia, eclampsia, diabetes, high blood pressure, preterm labor, heart problems, HIV, and AIDS. Prenatal care and the routine medical checkups by the obstetrician are what can stop debilitating disorders and even death from occurring for both the mother and baby. What is gynecology? Gynecology is the care of a women’s reproductive organs when not pregnant, which includes the vulva, vagina, cervix, uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries.

Gynecology is the academic study and medical practice of the female anatomy and its functions in their non-pregnant state. Gynecology focuses on maintaining wellness, diagnosing and treating disorders of the female reproductive organs. Gynecology is practiced by gynecologists and the majority of gynecologists also practice obstetrics. Obstetrics is the medical practice covering females in their pregnant state. The term OB/GYN is used to designate a doctor that is licensed in gynecology and obstetrics. Because gynecology and obstetrics are usually combined, this allows for the doctor and patient to have a lifelong diagnostic, treatment and follow-up history. The general practitioner (family doctor) and the gynecologist have complimentary and overlapping roles in today’s medicine.

Dr. Simon Weiss, founder of Specialty in Obstetrics and Gynecology has compiled a team of the best obstetricians, and the best gynecologists from around the world.
