Led by Harold E. Fox, M.D., the Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics provides a broad range of services for women, including:
- High-risk obstetric care
- Prenatal testing
- Fetal assessment
- Routine obstetrics
- Reproductive endocrinology
- Gynecologic oncology
- Comprehensive diagnosis and treatment of all gynecologic disorders
Obstetricians are available for the management of normal pregnancies. For women with pregnancy problems such as diabetes, lupus, hypertension, cardiac or renal disease, neoplasia, or previous prematurity and stillbirth, the departmental faculty includes an experienced group of high-risk obstetric specialists.
In addition, the Maternal-Fetal Diagnostic and Treatment Center provides multidisciplinary consultation to parents at high risk for bearing children with birth defects, including chromosomal disorders, metabolic errors and abnormal maternal serum screening. Genetic counseling, high-resolution ultrasound, amniocentesis, CVS and fetal blood sampling are offered. Fetal assessment is also provided for the well-being of the fetus, with a staff skilled in performing non-stress testing and biophysical profiles.
