Before a treatment or rehabilitation plan can be established for gynecologic or obstetric conditions, the physician must first determine the reason for, and source of, a condition. After the evaluative information is collected and reviewed, the gynecologist or obstetrician will determine the best treatment plan, based on an individual's condition and preferences.
Various types of diagnostic and surgical tests and procedures are used to diagnose and treat gynecologic and obstetric conditions. In this section, you will find information to help you learn more about gynecological and obstetrical diagnostic and surgical procedures including an overview of the procedure, reasons for the procedure, risks of the procedure, what to do before the procedure, and what to expect during and after the procedure.
If you cannot find the information in which you are interested, please visit the Online Resources section found at the end of each Gynecology test or procedure web page for an Internet address that may contain additional information on that topic.
