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.
