Family Planning

Mount Sinai's Division of Family Planning, in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Science, offers our patients high-quality, evidence-based care and a full range of family planning services. We provide all methods of reversible contraception including intrauterine devices and contraceptive implants, and perform female sterilization. We care for women and adolescents, and we also specialize in contraception care for women with medical conditions. The Mount Sinai Family Planning specialists provide comprehensive services for patients with unwanted or abnormal pregnancies, including medical and surgical management options. Our patients come to us from the New York area, throughout the United States, and abroad. We accept most insurance and have programs for patients facing financial difficulties.

Our caring and dedicated team of physicians and nurses work with the Mount Sinai Department of Social Work Services to provide comprehensive and innovative support services for patients, including our Perinatal Bereavement Program for women and families experiencing fetal anomalies and fetal loss. The Obstetrics and Gynecology Social Work Services include counseling and guidance to help patients and family members cope with loss (in both English and Spanish), community-based referrals, and facilitation of meaningful rituals sensitive to each family's spiritual, cultural and religious beliefs.

The Division of Family Planning is dedicated to training and educating the next generation of family planning providers. The Mount Sinai Family Planning specialists train physicians and students from Mount Sinai, across the United States, and abroad. Mount Sinai resident physicians in obstetrics and gynecology receive dedicated and comprehensive training in family planning. The Family Planning Division is proud to direct the Fellowship in Family Planning, a two-year specialist training program in comprehensive contraception and abortion care.

The Division of Family Planning is a productive research group. The Mount Sinai Family Planning specialists have published numerous research studies in peer-reviewed medical journals, presented research at national medical meetings, and received awards for significant contributions to science in the field of family planning.
