Edmonton OBGYN, let’s talk about it! To begin with, Gynecology is an area of medicine dealing with the health, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders affecting women’s reproductive organs and systems. On the one hand, obstetricians deliver babies, in addition to caring for women during and after pregnancy. On the other hand, a gynecologist is a doctor who specializes in female reproductive health. An OB-GYN is, in fact, trained to do the job of both an obstetrician and a gynecologist.
Edmonton OBGYN treats some of the most important health issues women face. These issues can include childbirth, birth control, and menopause. For instance, an OB-GYN can perform any job from treating infections, performing surgery for pelvic organ or urinary tract problems to screening for cancer.
We are fortunate that Edmonton has some of the finest OB-GYNs in the country. In this blog, I will highlight just a few of these highly knowledgeable Edmonton OB-GYNs.

Edmonton OBGYN Dr. Dolhaniuk specializes in treating a wide array of gynecological issues using minimally invasive techniques. Minimally invasive gynecologic surgery uses less invasive techniques, such as laparoscopy or hysteroscopy, to surgically treat gynecologic conditions. Minimally invasive techniques require only a few small incisions, rather than one large incision. Oftentimes, no incisions are needed. These state-of-the-art approaches help her patients recover more quickly and with less discomfort compared to traditional surgical methods.
Dr. Dolhaniuk’s other areas of expertise include dealing with high-risk pregnancies, endometriosis, menopause, as well as sexual health and contraception.
“I have seen her through two of my pregnancies and she makes every visit so comfortable and informative. Spends extra time explaining things, is always on time, so amazingly kind, and will do anything for her patients. Any concern you have is addressed with her attention and handled immediately. Plus, when she puts the doppler on your stomach, she makes you feel like it’s the first time she’s ever heard a baby heartbeat and it’s so special. This woman is a gem and is obviously in the PERFECT specialty.”
“I chose Dr. Dolhaniuk to be my OB when I was pregnant with my son and she was a complete sweetheart. She was always on time, made sure to call me back personally to update me on test results and check in with me. Dr. Dolhaniuk was always able to answer my questions and she was very comforting and reassuring when I had anxiety. I’ve had an IUD for a couple of years now and there were doctors that told me they couldn’t take my IUD out as they couldn’t figure out where it was. Dr. Dolhaniuk came to the rescue and was very confident about being able to take it out. She’s the most confident doctor I have ever dealt with!”

As a result of working with Dr. Uretsky, I credit the beautiful daughter, I have in my arms, to his expertise and treatment. He always treated me with respect, gave me hope, and treated my conditions that were causing problems in becoming pregnant. Additionally, he always took the time to explain things to me and listened to any concerns I had. As a result, I will always be grateful to him for helping me deliver a safe, happy, and healthy daughter. Undeniably, a great doctor, and if you are lucky enough to end up with him, just know you are in great hands.”
“I saw Dr. Uretsky for a cervical polyp. It was the first time to a male doc in over 20 years. Unfortunately, my blood pressure was sky high when I went in. However, he immediately put me at ease, as he was very approachable. He patiently explained things along the way, while continuing to make me at ease with his professional, but relaxed manner. What an amazing OB-GYN!”

” I love this doctor and I am super happy I was referred to him. Dr. Sklar made me feel so at ease and I trusted him 150%! Without a doubt, I am so thankful he did my surgery. Unfortunately, I had some heart issues and he made sure everything was ok before I was discharged. My angels made sure I got the right OB-GYN! Thank you Dr. Sklar for all you do!”
“I am happy that I was referred to Dr. Sklar by our family doctor. He delivered my second baby via scheduled C-section last October 28, 2020. Dr. Sklar is professional, kind, friendly and funny and I always felt comfortable and at ease when talking to him. On the day of my surgery, I was very nervous, but Dr. Sklar told me that I was in good hands and he was right! In fact, everything went smoothly from start to finish. I had a great recovery and my baby boy is healthy. Thank you very much, Dr. Sklar. You are an awesome surgeon!!! Undoubtedly, highly recommended!”
As has been noted, we are often referred to an Edmonton OBGYN for personal and sensitive health issues. As a result, we may feel reluctant to discuss these intimate issues with our OB-GYN. In fact, just the thought of seeing one often leaves us feeling anxious, nervous, or even embarrassed. While it may be uncomfortable for us, in reality, this is their profession and be rest assured, these doctors are very much aware of how women feel. Consequently, they will go out of their way to put us at ease.
To conclude, use your yearly OB-GYN appointment as an opportunity to ask questions. Even if your questions seem intimate or downright embarrassing, you can be certain that your doctor has heard them before. It is okay to ask about your periods, birth control, sex, or whatever you want to know about your reproductive health. After all, an OB-GYN is your partner in your reproductive health. By all means, carry on that partnership by making and keeping your yearly appointments. In between visits, meanwhile, don’t forget to let your doctor know if you have any new problems.
