About us

Our Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology provides care to women of all ages, from adolescents to seniors and everyone in between. Our doctors can serve as primary care physicians and provide treatment for many different gynecological conditions. Our residents, physician assistants and nurse midwives assist with infertility treatments, pregnancy care and gynecological surgery. We also work with patients who are dealing with cancer of the reproductive organs.

Collaboration between departments

The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology provides care across Staten Island, and we value the cooperation between our satellite facilities and departments. This collaboration allows us to provide you with the most advanced care available. Our North Site is available 24-hours for obstetrical and gynecological emergency care. The Labor and Delivery Unit features Labor-Delivery-Recovery (LDR) rooms and surgical suites. The Mother-Baby Unit provides postpartum and newborn care. Staten Island University Hospital also has an intensive and intermediate care nursery for newborns requiring exta attention. All units are connected by a state-of-the-art computer system for monitoring the fetus and documentation. We perform more than 3,000 deliveries per year and function as a level 3 perinatal center. We are able to care for women with all types of high-risk conditions, and our cesarean section rate is among the lowest in the country. To help with training the brightest minds, the department also has a fully accredited obstetrics and gynecology residency program.

Neonatal intensive care unit (NICU)

The hospital's level 3 neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) helps with the birth and care of as many as 500 babies annually. The NICU is important for children born under high-risk conditions, those born following fertility treatments, and babies born to older mothers. Our NICU is well equipped to handle even the most difficult cases and provides services to infants up to 30 days old. Our perinatal mortality rate is far below the national average. As a result, we won the Premier Award for Quality for Maternal and Neonatal Care.

Maternal and fetal medicine

The Department's maternal and fetal medicine service earned accreditation from the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine for its excellence in diagnostic ultrasound. Measuring standards in personnel, physical facility, policies and procedures, and quality assurance, the national organization awarded the department accreditation for three years.

Because one in every five pregnancies is high risk, the Department strongly emphasizes comprehensive prenatal care. Learning of a potential problem before birth can help doctors plan on prompt and optimal treatment after the child is born. Babies with birth defects can usually be identified before birth. This allows us to be prepared for any problems prior to delivery and leads to improved outcomes.

Our services

The Staten Island Center for Fertility

Our fertility center approaches infertility inclusively by considering both female and male reproductive functions.

Gynecologic oncology

The Division of Gynecologic Oncology offers the full range of services pertinent to the care of women with gynecologic malignancy, including radical pelvic surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy. We help women with ovarian, endometrial, cervical, vulvar and vaginal cancer, as well as those with pre-invasive conditions. Our services include comprehensive evaluation and complete oncological treatment.

Reproductive endocrinology and fertility

We provide a range of services that span a woman's life from puberty to menopause. Disorders for consultation include abnormal puberty, congenital müllerian abnormalities, endometriosis, pelvic pain, dysfunctional uterine bleeding, myomatous uterus and premenstrual symptoms. Treatment of infertility includes the management of ovulation induction, intrauterine insemination, sonohysterograms and in-vitro fertilization.

Female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery

We specialize in a comprehensive approach to pelvic floor disorders, ranging from non-surgical to state-of-the-art, minimally invasive procedures. We perform reconstructive surgery and treat female urinary incontinence. Patients range from young, active women to the most elderly, dealing with urinary symptoms and incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, fecal incontinence and birth injury.

Colposcopy and the evaluation of abnormal Pap tests

This program is designed for the evaluation and management of an abnormal Pap test, colposcopy and abnormal areas identified on the cervix. Abnormalities that may indicate or develop into cancer need to be treated appropriately. We often diagnose dysplasia (a precancerous condition), cervical cancer, genital warts on the cervix, cervicitis and benign growths such as polyps. A colposcopy is a routine procedure that does not require anesthesia.
