What is a Specialist Gynaecologists?
A gynaecologist is a specialist practicing in the health of the female reproductive system: the vagina, uterus and ovaries. The name comes from the Greek and means the ‘science of women’.
Almost every modern gynaecologist is also an obstetrician, meaning that for many women, establishing a medical relationship with a trusted gynaecologist will also ensure that they will be available when the woman decides to give birth and be able to monitor the woman throughout the gestation period as well as deliver the infant.
Gynaecologists these day are usually also trained in surgery. This means that they may employ either medical or surgical means to treat a specific gynaecological problem. Surgery is the main practice of modern gynaecological therapy.
