Gynecology is a subspecialty of medicine that encompasses almost all aspects of women’s health. Gynecologists are literally “women’s healthcare physicians,”specially trained to understand the unique anatomy and physiology of the female pelvis and reproductive organs. For many women, the gynecologist is also a primary care provider uniquely trained to provide individualized care for women in all stages of life.
