Professionals who may contribute to your care include:
- Anesthesiologists – Medical doctors with advanced specialization in administering medications to control pain and support vital functions. They care for patients before, during and after surgery.
- Gynecologists – Doctors who specialize in diagnosing and treating conditions that are unique to women. They provide routine physical care as well as advanced treatment for diseases affecting women’s reproductive systems and breast health.
- Lab Technicians – Professionals who draw blood, collect tissue and body fluid samples, and perform microscopic tests under the supervision of a medical technologist or doctor. Your doctor will use these test results to diagnose and treat your condition.
