Jimmi Rios, MD: A Complete Approach to Women’s Health

Gynecology is the medical practice dealing with the health of the female reproductive systems (vagina, uterus and ovaries) and the breasts. Literally, outside medicine, it means “the science of women.” Almost all modern gynecologists are also obstetricians (obstetrics and gynecology). In many areas, the specialties of gynecology and obstetrics overlap. But for Dr.Jimmi Rios it is far more. His clinic, Dr. Rios Women Health in McAllen, Texas, is opening with a diversity of services involving every aspect of women’s health including reproductive development, hormonal balance, vaginal reconstruction, even cosmetic surgery and anti-aging procedures designed as a complete care system for a complete woman. Dr. Rios himself said that he “consider(s) that cosmetic surgery procedures training has to be part of a gynecologist’s career path” and “The World Health Organization (WHO) defined health as ‘a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.’ Therefore, one’s external appearance may have even more influence over one’s complete physical, mental and social well-being than may be believed.”
