A Little bit of history about the site
From 1998 to 2004 this site was in Spanish and shared information about Gynecology and Obstetrics. Specialists were invited to publish their scholarly articles on these subjects after they had been reviewed and approved by university level teachers. Sadly, after 2004 the domain became inactive for a few years. In 2012 some new information was added to the domain which unfortunately expired in 2014.
But do not worry, this domain has been acquired by Dr. Halls and will be used to share technical information about gynecology and obstetrics. We will begin with the recovery of the old information published on this site from 1998. Joining us on this exciting escapade will be Moose who hopefully, will provide a few laughs and smiles alongside some very informative articles on gynecology and obstetrics.

Durante los años de 1998 hasta el 2004 este sitio compartió información sobre ginecología y obstetricia en español, en donde los especialistas eran invitados a publicar sus artículos después de ser revisados y aprobados por profesores universitarios en el área. Tristemente, después del 2004 el dominio permaneció inactivo durante algunos años. En el 2012, algo de nueva información fue agregada, hasta que desafortunadamente en el 2014 este dominio expiró.
Pero no hay de que preocuparse, este dominio ha sido adquirido por el Dr. Halls y será utilizado para compartir información técnica sobre ginecología y obstetricia. Empezaremos con la recuperación de la información antigua publicada en este sitio a partir de 1998. Se unirá a esta excitante aventura el Moose (Alce) quien con algo de suerte nos hará reir junto con algunos artículos muy informativos acerca de ginecología y obstetricia

I have always dreamt of becoming an obstetrician. Well, I’m now in the fourth year of my obstetrics and gynecology residency at Johns Hopkins, and soon I will be doing what I love most. But before that, let me tell you about my background. My father is an author and my mother is a high school language teacher. Ours has been a family of people who value writing and languages. So I had to fight to assert that I wanted to become a doctor instead of an English major. It was an uphill task fighting this generation-long tradition but my good grades gave me leverage and my parents finally gave in.
I just want to mention something about my father. He was an author of weight loss and other kinds of self help books, and he was a fitness guru who exercised every day. During my years living at home, I would run every day with father, for his weight loss research and to give him moral support, and I liked my father a lot, but I think he distrusted mainstream medicine.
It’s important to know, I think, that I learned about breast cancer during junior high school. My aunt had an invasive ductal carcinoma, and she was lucky that it was diagnosed in its early stages. Anyway, it was a serious topic of discussion in my home, and it reinforced my desire to become a doctor.
In those junior school years, long ago, some students, including myself, volunteered as helpers at a number of breast cancer awareness charity events, one each year. At the first time I never appreciated the broad scope of the topic of cancer. But as time went by, I started to feel some connection. I remember a lady I met at the school, who I later found out was a gynecologist herself, was very encouraging. I asked her a lot of questions and she was amazed that such comprehensive questions would come from a junior school kid.
She made me feel proud, for showing my interest in female reproductive health, and that is where it all started. I got the nickname “gynecology boy” and right there I knew this is what I wanted to do in my career. (I don’t think it was a very good nickname.)
In my high school years, I knew I had to get very high grades, so I really changed into a high achieving student, who studied, A LOT. I got steady with my dream and I would spend hours in the library. I did very well, and was accepted into university. Naturally, I went into the pre-med stream, and did very well there too. Hard work, not fun. Being accepted into Medical School, was such a relief. As you know, competition is very intense. Medical School is brutal. Lets skip past that, except to say, that I did fine and applied for an OBGYN residency.
By the way, Ob/Gyn’s are sometimes are the first kind of doctor that a woman consults, when she has a breast lump or other symptoms, so I knew I had to know the topic well, and I have indeed invested a lot of time, learning not only the diagnostic aspects, but also the surgical management and a fair amount of treatment details as well. But mostly, this specialty is a mixture of knowing how to manage the high risk obstetrical situations, and of course, knowing all the gynecological issues, common ones being menstrual concerns, infertility, fibroids, endometriosis, infections, cervical cancer, and so on.
What started out as childhood dream is finally coming to reality. In a matter of less than a year I will be a licensed obstetrician, and hope to start my career in the same hospital where I trained. My parents are proud of my career and they have been supportive in every way possible. I always think this was the best thing that ever happened in my life.
