Patients We Treat
Our surgeons treat female reproductive tract problems, from babies born with reproductive disorders to women in menopause who suffer from incontinence. We consult with our patients to explore different diagnostic and treatment options to treat and manage gynecologic and urogynecologic problems, from fibroids to incontinence. We work with each patient to design an individualized care management plan. We provide comprehensive care, from routine examinations to check for minor conditions, to sophisticated diagnostic tests and surgical treatment for complex problems.
Our gynecologic surgery specialists are experienced in Urogynecology, Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery, Minimally Invasive Surgery, Robotic surgery, Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology, Lesbian & Transgender Health.
We choose the least invasive surgical options, which may include a vaginal approach, laparoscopic or robotic techniques to minimize patients’ recovery times. Patients who undergo minimally invasive surgery may have less postoperative pain and faster recoveries compared to open abdominal surgery. Our surgeons are experienced in the most up to date surgical techniques and technology. Many of our doctors teach robotic techniques.
All of our doctors are members of Columbia University’s faculty, who are board certified in OB/GYN. Many hold additional board certifications in specialty areas. The standard of excellence our physicians bring to patient care matches the standards they have established in medical student education and world class academic research. US News & World Report ranks Columbia’s College of Physicians and Surgeons, Columbia University’s Medical School, in the top 10 nationally for Women’s Health and for Research.
Part of the vibrant medical community, our doctors and patients benefit from NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital’s Columbia University Medical Center (NYP-CUMC’s) facilities and expertise in patient care, from their collaboration with cutting edge medical researchers, clinicians and multidisciplinary specialists. NYP is consistently ranked #1 in New York City, on the Honor Roll nationally, and in the top ten for gynecology in US News and World Report’s 2011-2012 survey.
