Obstetrics & Gynecology
Caring for women’s health and wellbeing
The team at St. Luke's Obstetrics & Gynecology Associates is here to help women with all their health needs.
What is obstetrics and gynecology?
Obstetrics deals with all aspects of pregnancy, and gynecology is the care of the female reproductive system. Doctors who specialize in this branch of medicine are called OB-GYNs, which is short for obstetrician and gynecologist.
Do only doctors offer obstetric and gynecological care?
No. At St. Luke’s, you can also choose a certified nurse midwife (CNM), certified nurse practitioner (CNP) or a physician assistant (PA-C) as your provider.
What can an OB-GYN help with?
From adolescence through menopause and beyond, the OB-GYN providers at St. Luke’s offer a full range of care, including:

What surgical services are offered?
