    • Obstetrics and Gynecology
    Obstetrics and Gynecology has been my passion ever since I decided to study medicine while in high school. I feel I am part of the most complete specialty as we are able to be part of all of the different stages of a woman’s life. In view of these it has been very important for me to get involved in the development of treatment guidelines, committees and discussions regarding relevant OBGYN questions and controversial topics.
