Best Gynaecologist in Ahmedabad
By Deepak Limbachiya
Ahmedabad is home to a number of top Gynaecologist practices, including some of the countries’ top OB/GYNs or Gynaecologists and Obstetricians.
What Does an OB/GYN Do?
Although gynaecology and obstetrics were originally two single specialisations, in Ahmedabad gy-naecologists are also obstetricians. However the two different medical fields, while linked, have different medical focuses. These are explained below:
The Definition of Gynaecology
Gynaecology is the medical practice of dealing with woman’s health issues. This includes the treatment of the female reproductive system and includes medical problems with the uterus, vagina, and ovaries.
The Definition of Obstetrics
Obstetrics is the medical specialty dealing with the care of the female reproductive tract, as-well-as the treatment of children during the prenatal or pregnancy period, assisting with childbirth and labour and care of the baby during part of the postnatal period.
Medical Conditions OB/GYN’s Deal With
The following is a list of the main areas of treatment that an OB/GYN or Gynaecologist and Obste-trician will deal with in Ahmedabad.
Both cancerous and pre-cancerous diseases of the female reproductive organs are treated.
Problems with female incontinence are treated.
