Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology
North Shore University Hospital is widely recognized for providing outstanding health care to women during all phases of their lives. From our inception as a community-based hospital, our department’s ongoing dedication to patient care has included continually educating our patients with a focus on health prevention and early detection.
Our state-of-the-art Manhasset facility provides those we treat with the latest technological advances and the highest level of care in obstetrics and gynecology—from fetal sonography to our robotic programs. Our nationally recognized physicians are here to listen to each patient’s concerns and create care plans based on individual needs.
Our department also works collaboratively across the organization and will provide continued access to other tertiary care specialties. Though we are a large academic department with many resources, we always remain focused on what really matters—our patients.
Katz Women’s Hospital
Within North Shore University Hospital is Katz Women’s Hospital, a world-class facility providing superior care for the unique needs of women. We offer comprehensive, compassionate care and treatment for a wide range of women’s health issues.
The areas of expertise at Katz Women’s Hospital include maternal-fetal medicine, urogynecology, female pelvic medicine, reconstructive surgery, minimally invasive and robotic surgery, reproductive endocrinology and infertility services. Though we do focus on areas that are unique to women, we also provide access to many other healthcare needs that impact women and their families. These include all the pediatric specialties available through Cohen Children’s Medical Center, cardiology, orthopedics, neurology, nephrology, psychiatry, geriatrics and all types of post-acute and home care.
The Center for High Risk Pregnancy
The Center for High Risk Pregnancy offers pregnancy consultations—which may require multiple visits—for women who have an abnormal condition or complicating factor (a sonogram is usually included in one or more of these visits) that may cause their pregnancy to be considered high-risk. These conditions include diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart or kidney disease. The referring physician will usually provide the patient with a written request for maternal fetal medicine consultation and release pertinent medical records to the specialist for review. Multiple pregnancies (twins, triplets, or more) also carry greater risk to both mother and baby than a single pregnancy.
Our maternal-fetal medicine specialists may also be needed for problems with the baby such as abnormal growth and/or development, or problems with a mother's prior pregnancies, such as recurrent miscarriage, stillbirth, preterm delivery or high blood pressure. Our perinatologists have extensive experience in delivering high-risk obstetrical care.
