The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology offers a wide array of obstetrical and gynecological services. There are 12 full time attendings, 13 full time midwives and 10 full time Physician Assitants and a team of skilled nurses. We also have Specialists in Maternal Fetal Medicine, Ultrasound, Gyn Oncology and Urogynecology.
The Department offers highly trained physicians in all areas of gynecology. We have surgeons that specialize in the areas of minimally invasive laparoscopic, robotic surgery (using the daVinci S HD robot) and laser surgery. Women who suffer from fibroid tumors can now choose a simpler and safer, non-surgical procedure without the physical and emotional techniques impact of a hysterectomy. The procedure called Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) is now offered at Brookdale.
There are physicians on staff that are trained in pre- and post-menopause syndromes and osteoporosis with a state-of-the art bone densitometer. We have specialists in urogynecology, colposcopy, oncology (breast, cervical and ovarian cancer) and urinary and fecal incontinence.
Our mission is rooted in the need to provide culturally sensitive care to the residents of our communities.
