Obstetrics and Gynecology

Phone: (718) 670-1534

Around 4,000 babies are delivered each year at NewYork-Presbyterian Queens.

The department provides 24 hour, seven-day-a-week coverage. The department provides the highest standard of care and utilizes state-of-the-art equipment to perform minimally invasive endoscopic and laser surgery for procedures such as hysteroscopy and laparoscopy. For these we utilize endoscopic and robotic techniques to explore and treat uterine, tubal, ovarian, and other pelvic pathology. This requires smaller incisions, less post-operative pain, and permits faster recuperation and return to normal activities.
