Welcome from the Chair
Welcome to Obstetrics and Gynecology at Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian. Our Obstetrics and Gynecology program has a long tradition of providing excellent care to our patients and their families, as well as in teaching and research which advance pre-natal, maternal and women’s health through our research and student/resident teaching and training. Our multidisciplinary team of healthcare providers is dedicated to meeting the unique and changing medical needs of women, helping them to maintain and improve their health through annual checkups, screening programs, general obstetrical care and specialty care, while advancing and teaching the knowledge and skills of obstetrics and gynecology to our students and residents.
Our team of diverse and talented doctors based in New York City provide comprehensive patient care in the following areas:
- General Obstetrics and Gynecology
- Gynecologic Oncology
- Maternal-Fetal Medicine
- Reproductive Medicine
All of our facilities on both the Upper East Side and Lower Manhattan provide a superb location and experience for clinical care and are dedicated to obstetric (including high risk), gynecologic (including minimally invasive surgery) and gynecological oncology care across the spectrum of women’s ages and life stages.
Beyond excellence in patient care, the department also represents the highest standards of academic medical training available anywhere in the world - from the undergraduate level to a broad-based residency program. We offer approved fellowships leading to subspecialty certification in the growing fields of Maternal-Fetal Medicine, Gynecologic Oncology and Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility.
Through laboratory research and extensive clinical trials, our scientists at Weill Cornell Medicine are advancing the ability of our specialists to deliver even more positive outcomes for their patients – not only at our facilities here in New York, but around the nation and the world. It is this combined dedication to breakthrough discovery, advanced training and excellence in patient care that gives our Obstetrics and Gynecology team its reputation as a provider of leading edge women’s healthcare.
I hope that our website will provide you with the opportunity to learn more about our physicians, specialties and clinical programs, in addition to education programs and research. I encourage you to contact us with any questions you might have regarding the spectrum of services we provide.
Sincerely, and to your good health,
Frank A. Chervenak, M.D.
