  4. 4. CH 10 REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM GYNECOLOGIST  These days gynecology does not address all of women's medicine but focuses on disorders of the female reproductive organs.  An obstetrician/gynecologist is thus a physician who both delivers babies and treats diseases of the female reproductive organs.  Abbreviated commonly as OB/GYN.
