Gynaecology is the medical practice dealing with the health of the female reproductive systems (vagina, uterus, and ovaries) and the breasts. Outside medicine, the term means "the science of women". Its counterpart is andrology, which deals with medical issues specific to the male reproductive system.

Megha Surgical Hospital's gynaecology experts provide preventive services, accurate diagnosis and outpatient treatments for common and complex disorders of the female reproductive tract. Your care team may include physicians, surgeons, genetics professionals, physician assistants and advanced practice nurses. Your doctor may also collaborate with Women's Health Clinic staff who care for women who have complex menopausal or sexual health concerns, depending on your situation.

Conditions treated

Chronic pelvic pain. Women with chronic pelvic pain will benefit from Mayo Clinic's multidisciplinary approach to care. Your doctor may involve colleagues who specialize in pain medicine, physical medicine and rehabilitation, behavioral health, gastroenterology, and minimally invasive gynecologic surgery. Your Mayo Clinic doctor partners with your primary provider for long-term management.

Endometriosis. Women with endometriosis will work with doctors who take a comprehensive approach to this condition.

Vulvar skin conditions. Women with complicated vulvar dermatoses are evaluated and treated with a combined effort between gynecology and dermatology, as needed.
