From the Director
Andrew Satin, M.D.
Date: January 2, 2014
As the newly appointed director of the Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics, I am truly privileged to work with such a talented team. I’m especially proud of the surgical boundaries we are pushing and the groundbreaking research discoveries we are making in a field that is changing rapidly.
The vision for our department involves a significant investment in cutting-edge clinical programs and expanding our specialized faculty to continue to be at the forefront of advances in the field.
The articles in this issue of Innovations in Gynecology demonstrate the range of our expertise and illustrate our commitment to advancing care for women of all ages: using amnioinfusion to treat a
developing fetus with bilateral renal agenesis, combining novel therapies to treat pelvic pain, ovarian tissue cryopreservation in young cancer patients, using 3-D ultrasound to explain certain pelvic floor disorders, reducing incision sizes for both benign and oncology procedures.
We hope you enjoy this brief snapshot of our department’s innovations. Please call on us to learn how we can contribute to your practice.
