Gynecology Services is a Division of the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department. It encompasses inpatient and outpatient services focused on the management of benign conditions related to women's health. The section performs over 1,200 procedures per year including advanced laparoscopic procedures.
We have experienced, highly trained physicians committed to providing the best care for patients preoperatively, intraoperatively and postoperatively. The area of urogynecology provides diagnostic and treatment services for patients with pelvic floor defects, urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse.

Gynecological Oncology delivers comprehensive care to gynecologic cancer patients using the most up-to-date therapies available. Diagnostic procedures include screening for malignancy of the cervix, vagina, uterus, ovaries and vulva; Pap smear; colposcopy; and pelvic ultrasound. Treatments includes surgery for malignancies along with pelvic floor reconstruction and minimally invasive surgery such as laparoscopic management of pelvic masses and early gynecologic cancers. We also perform radical pelvic surgery as well as pelvic floor reconstruction that includes difficult uterine prolapse procedures.
The Perinatal Diagnostic Center uses the latest ultrasound technology to evaluate both low- and high-risk obstetrical patients. We offer perinatal consulting with a perinataolgist for in and outpatients. Our Reproductive Genetics Department  offers genetic counseling as part of comprehensive prenatal diagnosis.
We specialize in non-invasive fetal testing as well as invasive testing and treatment.
- Transabdominal & transvaginal ultrasound
- Fetal growth assessment using multiple parameter computerized
- Level II ultrasound for major anomaly detection
- Targeted ultrasound for anatomical and functional assessment of
complex cardiac and multisystem defects
- Multidisciplinary management approach in collaboration with pediatric sub-specialists
- Utero-placental and fetal placental Doppler for high-risk pregnancies
- Complete fetal Doppler (umbilical artery, middle cerebral artery, descending aorta,
inferior vena cava, cardiac outflows, and ductus venosus) for the assessment of the fetus
with growth restriction prior to term
- Non-stress test along with biophysical profile for fetal well-being assessment of fetuses at risk
- Computerized ratios of multiple fetal Doppler parameters for the assessment of fetal
brain oxygenation (brain sparing assessment)
Some high-risk pregnancies involve intensive fetal surveillance to provide information about the health of the fetus. Certain conditions may require procedures for diagnostic or treatment purposes as follows:
- Chorionic Villus Sampling (CVS)
- Fetal Echocardiogram
- Umbilical Blood sampling
NON-INVASIVE FETAL TESTING
TRANSVAGINAL AND TRANSABDOMINAL ULTRASOUNDS
An ultrasound (sonogram) uses a device that transmits harmless sound waves to create images. It may be offered during pregnancy for a variety of reasons, including verifying a due date, checking for multiple fetuses, evaluating fetal growth, investigating complications such as placenta previa (a low-lying placenta) or slow fetal growth, or detecting malformations like anencephaly.
Amniocentesis involves the removal of a small amount of amniotic fluid (the water surrounding a developing baby) from the uterus under ultrasound guidance after 14 weeks of pregnancy. The amniotic fluid is used to test for fetal lung maturity, to evaluate fetal kidney functions, to remove fluid accumulation within the baby's abdomen, heart or lungs and to analyze fetal chromosomes and/or DNA.
Chorionic Villus Sampling involves the removal of a small sample of chorionic villus (early placental tissue) from the uterus under ultrasound guidance. CVS is usually performed between 10 and 12 weeks gestation. DNA and/or chromosome analysis can be performed on the tissue.
Percutaneous Umbilical Blood Sampling (PUBS): Fetal blood sampling can be used to diagnose fetal infections, fetal anemia and other medical conditions where blood testing is essential.
Transfusions: Fetuses who suffer from severe anemia can be transfused before birth when necessary (anti-D, anti-Kell, etc.)
Fetal Echocardiogram: This service is provided by a Pediatric Cardiologist. Appointments can be scheduled through the Perinatal Diagnostic Center or Department of Pediatrics .ShareThis 
The Brooklyn Hospital Center's reproductive genetic counselors provide comprehensive genetic services for a variety of indications:
- Advanced maternal Age (women who will be 35 or older at the
expected time of delivery)
- Positive Maternal Serum Screen (blood test during pregnancy
showing an increased riskfor a neural tube defect/spina bifida
or Down syndrome in the fetus)
- Fetal anomalies detected on sonogram
- Exposure of pregnant women to potential mutagens or teratogens
during pregnancy (e.g. medications, radiation, chemicals, infectious
agents, alcohol, illicit drugs)
- Family or Personal History of a known or suspected genetic condition
(e.g., cystic fibrosis, Fragile X Syndrome, muscular dystrophy,
neurofibromatosis, sickle cell anemia)
- Family or Personal History of a multifactorial or polygenic condition
(e.g., neural tube defect/spina bifida, congenital heart disease,
- Family or personal history of cancer
