Psychosomatic disorders in Obstetrics and Gynaecology

  • M Kleynhans


During our academical years in the government setting (training as well as working as consultants) we see pathology, a lot, severe and far progressed. There is limited time to fully examine the patient and to make a proper diagnosis, there is very seldom time to get to know your patient and discuss fears and emotions. It is known that we need to manage disease by looking at mind-body interactions and this should include the assessment of biological, psychological and social aetiological factors - thus the biopsychosocial model.
