Fertility Medicine

We provide fertility support through a wide range of cutting-edge, assisted reproductive technologies, including:


Patients have seamless access to the fertility resources available at Massachusetts General Hospital if necessary. We have among the highest success rates in New England.

For details on IVF and other assisted reproductive technologies (ART) rates, please visit the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Gynecologic Oncology

Understanding the special needs of our patients, we provide compassionate and expert care while working with you to develop an individualized, advanced treatment plan in a comfortable, patient-oriented environment. Our multidisciplinary team provides the most advanced treatments for women with a variety of gynecologic cancers, including:

  • Cervical cancer
  • Endometrial cancer
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Uterine cancer
  • Vaginal cancer
  • Vulvar cancer

Our physicians are highly specialized gynecologic oncologists from Massachusetts General Hospital. Gynecologic oncology patients also have seamless integrated access to the expanded Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center in Boston should the need arise.

Gynecologic Surgery

We provide innovative outpatient surgical procedures for gynecologic problems, including:

  • Endometriosis
  • Fibroids
  • Pelvic pain
  • Pelvic adhesions
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Pelvic floor disorders

Gynecologic surgeons at the Mass General/North Shore Center for Outpatient Care are board certified and are members of the Massachusetts General Hospital and North Shore Medical Center surgical staffs. They perform high-quality, leading-edge treatments and procedures.

At the Mass General/North Shore Center for Outpatient Care facility, patients receive comprehensive outpatient surgical care that does not require an overnight hospital stay. Our facility offers quiet, private spaces during pre- and post-operative care.

Maternal Fetal Medicine

For patients with pre-existing conditions or who develop complications during pregnancy, our maternal-fetal medicine specialists work with community obstetricians and are available to consult on patients’ care.
Our subspecialist maternal-fetal physicians have in-depth expertise in all areas of high-risk obstetrics, including:

  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Thyroid illnesses
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Asthma
  • Cervical incompetence
  • Preterm labor
  • Infectious diseases
  • A fetus with a known birth defect
  • The presence of multiple fetuses
  • Placenta accreta or percreta (when the placenta grows deeper than usual into the uterine wall)
  • Vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC)

Ultrasound and Prenatal Diagnostics

We offer a complete range of sophisticated prenatal screening and diagnostic services – including leading-edge ultrasound technology – to identify structural defects, genetic syndromes and chromosomal disorders early in pregnancy. We also offer early risk assessment late in the first trimester, which does not use amniocentesis.

Mass General was among New England's first hospitals to offer first-trimester screening for Down syndrome and other chromosomal abnormalities between the 11th and 14th weeks of pregnancy—and to refine this approach on an ongoing basis.

Because most birth defects occur in low-risk pregnancies, we use a “level 2” structural survey as our standard of care to evaluate fetuses. This approach typically yields the highest detection rate for potentially serious problems, such as congenital heart disease.

Our physicians’ research helps pave the way for advances in prenatal diagnostic technology. Based on our research, for example, we can typically make prenatal evaluations two or more weeks earlier than we did as recently as ten years ago.

We continually refine our approach based on the latest research.

Nuchal Translucency Screening

Our approach to nuchal translucency (NT) screening, a sophisticated, noninvasive diagnostic test performed in early pregnancy, includes evaluating the nasal bone to provide a more accurate assessment of your risk for having a baby with birth defects.

Specialized Training

All of our ultrasounds are performed by physicians with specialized training in prenatal diagnosis either through subspecialty training or an arduous apprenticeship (or most often, both). Please do not hesitate to ask any questions you may have during a prenatal diagnostic procedure. Our physicians are available to help answer your questions or discuss the latest research.

Urogynecology

We provide comprehensive evaluation and advanced treatment – both surgical and nonsurgical – for women with pelvic floor problems (weakness of the pelvic muscles or tears in the connective tissue leading to problems controlling the bladder and bowels.) Patients see the most appropriate caregiver for their particular condition. Our goal is to treat all of a patient's incontinence problems so she can enjoy a successful outcome and return to a normal lifestyle.

Conditions treated include:

  • Urinary incontinence (leaking urine), including stress incontinence, urge incontinence and overflow incontinence
  • Pelvic organ prolapse (when pelvic organs slip out of place and descend, putting pressure on the bladder, urethra or other parts of the pelvis)
  • Fecal incontinence and constipation
  • Bladder or urethral fistulas and rectal fistulas
  • Other bladder function problems (not related to urinary tract infections)

Our approach is to avoid surgery whenever possible. Many symptoms can be addressed using nonsurgical approaches, such as:

  • Targeted physical therapy: Our physical therapists specialize in treating the muscles of the pelvic floor, treating disorders such as pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence
  • Pessary: Placing a device into the vagina that can provide support to treat prolapse of the uterus
  • Biofeedback: A complementary and alternative medicine technique in which you learn to control bodily functions using your mind. Biofeedback methods may help patients learn to identify, strengthen and control pelvic floor muscles
  • Mind/body medicine: Mind/body techniques such as meditation can empower women who experience urinary incontinence and other bladder disorders and can help them manage their symptoms.


For patients who do require surgery, we are committed to offering minimally invasive procedures that involve less pain and a shorter recovery time. Our physicians specialize in urogynecologic surgery and perform many procedures to treat urinary incontinence and prolapse. Our team also includes experienced urogynecologic nurses who are committed to providing you with sensitive, expert care and who partner with you to ensure your care meets your needs and preferences.
