What is gynecology?

Gynecology is the study of the female reproductive organs. Many gynecologists also specialize in obstetrics, or the study of childbirth.

An obstetrician/gynecologist, or OB/GYN for short, is a doctor who both delivers babies and treats diseases of the female reproductive organs.

OSF HealthCare offers obstetrics and gynecology (OB/GYN) care in many of its service areas.
