What are the differences between a gynecologist (not obstetric) and obstetric gynecologist?

What are the differences between a gynecologist (not obstetric) and obstetric gynecologist?

No OB: A gynecologist does not do obstetrics. Many OB/GYNs will give up the OB as they get older, not wanting the crazy hours most OB/GYNs have. (I often tell my patients when they have been waiting in the office because I've been delivering a baby that the babies have no respect for my schedule). Both have trained the same and are certified by the same board (ABOG). ...Read more

Fellowship in maternal-fetal medicine, can I get a fellowship in gynecologic oncology afterward?

Fellowship in maternal-fetal medicine, can I get a fellowship in gynecologic oncology afterward?

Theoretically yes...: In practice, few if any physicians can endure 11 years of training and resident pay. Additionally, most program directors would frown upon the switch in direction as a sign of personality imbalance and/or unpredictability and would be reluctant to hire you after the first fellowship without a very good reason. Given that both subspecialties are now quite competitive, i advise against trying this. ...Read more

Are obstetricians also gynecologists?

Are obstetricians also gynecologists?

Some are some aren't: Typically training in either of these fields after medical school includes both obstetrics and gynecology. Most doctors then go on to practice both, at least for some time. However after training some individuals specialize and therefore do just one or the other. In addition specialization may lead to a further defined and limited practice also known as sub-specialization. ...Read more

Wat are the major books that I have to study to get my m.D. In obstetrics and gynecology?

Wat are the major books that I have to study to get my m.D. In obstetrics and gynecology?

Not all in books: When you're studying under an obstetrician they will have their favorite texts and videos. But first you get your M.D. Then you do a training in obstetrics and gynecology. Congratulations on your goal. Assisting mothers to deliver their babies has been the favorite part of my general practice career. I took my wife to a remote island to meet a "baby" i delivered there 38 years ago. Very emotional. ...Read more

What causes some gynecologists to put women under anesthesia for a regular pelvic exam?

What causes some gynecologists to put women under anesthesia for a regular pelvic exam?

That's unusual.: The only patients that i've ever anesthetized for a pelvic exam were children. It would be extraordinarily unusual for a patient to need anesthesia for a routine pelvic exam. I could understand however that some women with very painful conditions or a history of a traumatic experience may benefit from some sedation prior to their pelvic exam, but not a general anesthetic. ...Read more

Additionally, they provide access to administer any medications that may be necessary in labor such as antibiotics or pain meds. Finally, if a cesarean section becomes necessary, the IV allows the anesthesiologist to have access. ...Read more
