About Us

The concept of GynMobileHealth is really the combination of two companies sharing the same vision.  Medscience Animations Studio and the International Academy of Pelvic Surgery are both dedicated to education of the gyn surgeon as well as improving the quality of life of women.  As Bernardo and Cheryl started to work on projects over the last year together, they realized that the technology platform of Medscience Animations and the education platforms of the International Academy of Pelvic Surgery should join together to form GynMobileHealth.

Our hopes and aspirations remain the same as we strive to reach women and physicians around the world to deliver top-notch education that will improve the quality of life for women everywhere.
