Gynecology is the branch of medicine which deals with the health of the female reproductive system at all ages. It includes the general health and ailments associated with vagina, uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes and even the breasts. Literally, in the common man's world, it also known as "the science of women".
Gynecologists are the doctors who specialise in this branch of medicine and they are committed to lay their focus on to the care for the whole patient, with particular emphasis on the female reproductive system, including routine primary and preventive care, pregnancy and delivery, menopause, and medical or surgical management of all gynecological problems. We as doctors provide a full range of general gynecologic services for women, from yearly examinations and screenings to highly specialized procedures. General gynecologic problems include abnormal bleeding, chronic pelvic pain, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, loss of bladder control, pelvic floor disorders, problems with pelvic support and contraceptive counselling.
Certain common gynaecological issues like Irregular Menstruation (heavy bleeding, prolonged periods), pregnancy, menopause, premenstrual Syndrome (PMS), urinary tract infection, vaginal yeast infection, pre-cancerous and cancerous abnormalities, Sexually-transmitted diseases, vulvodynia, to name a few form an integral part of gynaecological practice and woman health care.
Gynecology is the only field of medicine which is a fusion of both surgical as well as medical practice and in short is a "One-Step" solution to all women issues.
