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.
