A Note from the Editor-in-Chief
Authors:  Lawrence D. Devoe, M.D.
  Welcome to the March-April 2021 Editor-in-Chief’s page. This issue contains two papers that deal with the practice of obstetrics and gynecology during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
In This Issue
• Elective Procedures in Obstetrics and Gynecology During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Patrick S. Ramsey, M.D., M.S.P.H., and Sarah M. Page-Ramsey, M.D.
As the pandemic surged throughout the United States, both the U.S. Surgeon General and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services called for postponement of nonessential adult elective surgeries. These pronouncements were soon echoed at the state government level as well. The authors tackle the difficult questions of what constitutes an elective procedure and, within the discipline of obstetrics and gynecology, what procedure considerations apply to each subspecialty area.
