Gynaecology-Obstetrics is a medical specialty that prevents, diagnoses and treats disorders of the genitourinary tract, relating to female urinary and genital functions or organs. It also accompanies every phase of pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum, from a medical and surgical standpoint.

Women go through different stages of reproduction, each of which imply physiological changes such as delayed or absent menstruation, infertility, uterine infectious diseases (HPV infection of the uterine cervix), urinary incontinence, uterine prolapse, and neoplastic disorders (such as uterus, ovary or vaginal cancer). Preventing, diagnosing and treating these illnesses is the main focus of Gynecology-Obstetrics teams.

Physicians specializing in Gynecology-Obstetrics are also responsible for monitoring pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period (puerperium). From a medical point of view, this implies monitoring the pregnancy regularly. From a surgical point of view, it may involve procedures necessary as a result of childbirth.

The specialty of Gynecology-Obstetrics often resorts to complementary diagnostic exams, such as fetal ultrasound during pregnancy and other imaging exams, such as mammography and MRI, for the prevention and monitoring of breast and gynecological pathologies.

Joaquim Chaves Saúde features a highly specialized team of physicians to advise on the frequency of complementary exams, necessary for the prevention and screening of the most frequent diseases, in every reproductive phase.
