Obstetrics & Gynecology
The specialty of Obstetrics and Gynecology (frequently called “Ob/Gyn”) focuses on the lifelong health-related concerns of women. Physicians and other healthcare providers who practice Obstetrics and Gynecology, like Certified Nurse Midwives (CNM), provide comprehensive care, ranging from primary medical and general reproductive care to the highly specialized needs of women before, during, and after pregnancy.
To help with diagnosis of more complex problems, our team offers in-office diagnostic and radiologic procedures, including LEEP (Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure) and ultrasound. In addition, our skilled Obstetrician-Gynecologists manage surgical diseases of the female reproductive organs and urinary tract using both traditional open techniques and state-of-the-art, minimally-invasive laparoscopic and robotic procedures.
At White Plains Hospital, we believe that your choice of an Obstetrician-Gynecologist is highly personal, and it is very important that you select a physician or caregiver whose approach to healthcare matches your own. We recognize that for many women, their Ob/Gyn specialist is their best ally for preventive care, including routine annual breast exams, pelvic exams and Pap smears, which can detect health problems early or simply provide the assurance of good health.
The physicians and Certified Nurse Midwives at White Plains Hospital approach health care with each patient and her specific needs in mind. They recognize the importance of careful attention to individual concerns and can discuss what type of testing is right for you, ensuring that you receive the exceptional care you deserve.
