Specialty Services at NYU Langone Long Island Women’s Health Associates
The obstetricians, gynecologists, and minimally invasive gynecologic surgeons at NYU Langone Long Island Women’s Health Associates specialize in caring for women during pregnancy and providing the most advanced treatment possible for conditions affecting the female reproductive system.
We provide preventive gynecologic care, including annual wellness exams, human papillomavirus (HPV) testing, and Pap testing and treatment of conditions associated with abnormal Pap test results. We offer family planning services, including intrauterine devices (IUD) implants and fertility treatment referrals; we treat abnormal uterine bleeding, endometriosis, fibroids, ovarian cysts, and perimenopause and menopause symptoms. Our advanced diagnostic procedures include colposcopy, Endosee hysteroscopy, and sonohysterogram.
We also offer preventive care and medical treatment for adolescents and teenagers, including HPV vaccination to prevent cervical cancer, contraception consultation, and treatment for irregular menstrual disorders, including polycystic ovary syndrome.
Our goal is to provide a customized pregnancy experience for all expecting mothers. We offer prenatal counseling, genetic counseling, and care after delivery.
We help you determine your pregnancy goals, including how to manage the early stages of labor, the type of pain control if you would like any, and your hopes for delivery.
When the time comes to have your baby, childbirth takes place at NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island, where one of our board-certified obstetricians is always on staff to assist you and help ensure the best possible birth. NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island is a New York State–designated Regional Perinatal Center equipped to provide the highest level of care for you and your baby during and after delivery.
At NYU Langone Maternal–Fetal Medicine Associates—Mineola, we provide advanced care for pregnant women who are at high risk of pregnancy complications. This may include women who are pregnant with multiples as well as those who have diabetes, hypertension, clotting disorders, kidney disease, cervical abnormalities, or exposure to medications that could cause complications during pregnancy.
We provide the latest testing available to evaluate and monitor your baby’s health. This includes 3D and 4D ultrasounds to monitor your baby’s growth and amniocentesis, chorionic villus sampling (CVS), and cordocentesis to test for chromosomal abnormalities and congenital anomalies. We also offer noninvasive prenatal testing (NIPT), in which a blood test is used to detect certain chromosomal and genetic syndromes as early as 10 weeks of pregnancy.
We also provide testing and support for women who have a history of preterm labor, stillbirth, or recurrent pregnancy loss, also known as miscarriage. We collaborate with women and their partners to try to determine the cause of prior complications, identify potential risks, and plan for a successful pregnancy.
Newborns in need of specialized treatment are cared for by the neonatologists in our Level 3 Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery
We help patients determine the best treatment plan, starting with the lowest risk, least aggressive approach to relieve symptoms effectively. If surgery is needed, our surgeons spend considerable time during presurgical evaluations to develop a personalized care plan. Our experts use laparoscopic, robotic, and vaginal techniques for various procedures, including endometrial ablation, hysteroscopy, bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, and hysterectomy. The small incisions used result in reduced pain, less scarring, and faster healing than traditional open surgery.
Conditions we treat using minimally invasive surgical techniques include these:
- abnormal uterine bleeding
- adenomyosis, or endometriosis of the uterus
- adnexal mass, a growth in the tissue surrounding the ovaries and uterus
- benign cysts and tumors of the ovary
- chronic pelvic pain
- heavy bleeding from uterine fibroids
- painful periods
- pelvic adhesions
Our doctors treat female pelvic conditions, including bladder dysfunction, urinary tract infections, pelvic organ prolapse, uterine prolapse, female urinary incontinence, and stress and fecal incontinence. We provide a full range of testing to evaluate the health of your urinary tract, including measuring urine output, pelvic muscle strength, and nerve responsiveness to signals from the bladder and bowel.
Our doctors determine the best treatment plan to relieve your pain and improve your quality of life. This can include vaginal, laparoscopic, or robotic surgery; transurethral injections; minimally invasive slings for urinary incontinence; and medication.
Treatment for Gynecologic Cancers
Care for women with cancer is provided at Perlmutter Cancer Center at NYU Langone Gynecologic Oncology Associates—Mineola and NYU Langone Medical Associates—Valley Stream.
