Obstetrics and gynecology are the two surgical–medical specialties dealing with the female reproductive organs in their pregnant and non-pregnant state. Obstetrics is the medical specialty dealing with the care of all women’s reproductive tracts and their children during pregnancy (prenatal period), childbirth and the postnatal period. Gynecology is the medical practice dealing with the health of the female reproductive system (uterus, vagina, and ovaries).
At Clinique Médicale Diamant, most of obstetricians are also gynecologists, meaning they can be consulted for both specialties.
Following tests and procedures are routinely recommended / performed by our obstetrician / gynecologists:
- Pap test ( Pap test is a procedure in which cells are scraped from the cervix for examination under a microscope and is used to detect cervical cancer)
- Cervical biopsy
