A Message from Our Chair

Aristotle said "we are what we repeatedly do; excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit." For over 150 years, we've perfected our habit of devotion to and care for women at all stages of their lives.

It isn't simply that we deliver thousands of babies each year. Or, that we have one of the largest gynecologic oncology services in the United States. And it's not that we help countless infertile couples realize their dreams of having a family.

We've done all these things and more. But, what really distinguishes our success is the team behind the medicine. The 45 full-time faculty and hundreds of affiliated physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, researchers, and administrative staff make us who we are and allow us to help thousands of patients each year both here at home and abroad.

From general and high risk obstetrics, general gynecology and gynecologic infectious diseases, to gynecologic oncology, urogynecology and pelvic reconstructive surgery, it is our individual and collective knowledge, experience, passion and compassion for the patients we treat, the physicians we train and our contributions to the field of women's healthcare that make us stand out and enable our patients to receive the highest level of care available.

Each and every member of the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Science at Mount Sinai is committed to putting our patients first. I invite you to learn more about us and experience the Mount Sinai difference.
