Gynecology and Obstetrics

Gynecology is the medical specialty practiced by doctors specialized in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the female reproductive system. Gynecologists may perform surgeries such as removal of the uterus or ovaries, and some may have a focus of practice of women who have cancers of their reproductive system, while others focus on problems of infertility. Obstetrics is the medical specialty that cares for pregnant women, from conception through delivery and the period following delivery. Some obstetricians have a focus of practice, for example high-risk pregnancies or women with hormonal problems. Some gynecologists also practice obstetrics, and some obstetricians also practice gynecology. Before you consult with a specialist, it is good to know his focus of practice, as well as if he is certified by the Federation Brasiliera das Associações de Ginecologia e Obstetricia, which is the official organization recognized by the Associação Médica Brasiliera.
