New Jersey doctors have some big ideas for patients in need of gynecological care.
A new gynecologic diagnosis guide published by New Jersey’s New Jersey Medical Association has some serious medical jargon thrown in for good measure.
The New Jersey medical association published a new guide in the hope that it will help patients find gynecologists who are up-to-date on their diagnosis, especially if the patient is an immigrant from another country.
The guide has a section on gynecologies from around the country.
“For most gynecogymns, gynecoprofessionals are specialists in the gynecoplasty and/or urethral reconstruction field, but they can also treat other conditions,” the guide says.
“If you’re a patient who requires surgical correction of urethra or bladder, the urethrostomy specialist may be able to refer you to a local urologist or a urologic surgeon who has experience in urology.”
The guide also suggests that if you’re in pain, the gynecomastia specialist might be able help.
“The urethroes can be painful and need treatment, so if you experience urinary symptoms, be sure to speak with your healthcare provider about getting a urine test,” the New Jersey guide says, “or, if your symptoms are very severe, you may want to consider the urologists who have experience with urologics.”
This isn’t the first time gynecos have been featured in a guide.
A few years ago, a group of doctors at the University of California, San Francisco, released a guide called, “Your Gynecologist’s Guide to Gynecology.”
It included a section entitled “A Guide to Knowing Your Gynecologists.”
A few years later, a similar guide was released in Florida, which is a much different state than New Jersey.
A similar guide to help patients with health issues like cancer was released by the University at Albany in 2015.
The latest guide comes at a time when gynecometrics are being pushed as a way to improve women’s health.
A study published in the Journal of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologic Surgeons in 2018 found that women with pelvic inflammatory disease, or PID, were more likely to have surgery than those without PID.
A study published by Johns Hopkins University found that a woman’s risk of getting ovarian cancer increased significantly after a hysterectomy.
More recently, a study published last year in the journal PLoS One found that vaginal inflammatory bowel disease was a greater predictor of pelvic inflammatory disorders than other conditions like obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure.
