What is gynecology and obstetrics?

Gynecology and obstetrics are distinct branches of medicine that focus on the diagnosis and treatment of problems related to the female reproductive system. This includes conditions related to the vagina, uterus, ovaries, and breasts, as well as the comprehensive care of women during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period.


Gynecologists have the expertise to manage a diverse spectrum of conditions, ranging from infections and hormonal imbalances to cancer and issues related to fertility.

In the typical scenario, women seek the services of a gynecologist for routine examinations and prenatal care throughout pregnancy. Simultaneously, obstetricians specialize in providing care to women during pregnancy, childbirth, and the immediate postpartum period.

In the Gynecology service of Fundación Valle del Lili, we are committed to providing comprehensive and personalized care to women of all ages, the service is characterized by maintaining continuous contact with the different subspecialties to ensure the comprehensive care of the mother and the fetus.

We have state-of-the-art technology, under national and international standards for maternal and fetal monitoring, as well as a comprehensive and multidisciplinary team with the experience and knowledge necessary to accompany patients at every stage of their lives.

We are the only unit in the country that has the support of intensive care gynecologists and a 24/7 emergency care service, in addition to a continuous availability of two gynecologists and obstetricians trained in the care of high-risk obstetric patients at the service for the time required.
