Obstetrics, in Latin, means to stand by. It is the specialty dealing with the care of pregnant women and their unborn babies. During the antenatal period, our care ensures that the mother and child have the best preparation. Problems are identified, solved or stabilized. During childbirth, obstetricians maximize safety for the mother and baby using appropriate monitoring and management. Our care aims for the best outcome under minimal intervention. In the postnatal period, we ensure the best physical and psychological recovery of the mother. We are always by your side.
Gynaecology, in Greek, means the study of women. It is the medical practice dealing with the structural and functional health of the female reproductive system (including the ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus, cervix and vagina.). Gynaecologists use the clinical history, physical examination, radiological and laboratory investigations to diagnose or refute abnormalities. Medical or surgical therapies may be employed, sometimes together, depending on the exact nature of the problem. In addition, gynaecologists promote health maintenance and birth control for women. Minimally invasive therapy in gynaecology uses key-hole or scarless surgery (laparoscopy and hysteroscopy) to reach the source of problem, while doing other parts of the body little or no injury. The amount of surgical work done at the site of the problem is the same but recovery is a lot faster. A good gynaecologist recommends surgery only when drugs do not work: as the minimal surgery is no surgery. On the other hand, if the condition is such that an open wound treats a problem better, an honest doctor recommends so.
