We offer sensitive, expert care in the following areas:
- Gynecologic cancers
- Gynecology and reproductive medicine
- Obstetrics and high-risk obstetrics
- Minimally invasive surgery
- Ultrasounds and prenatal diagnostics
- Urogynecology and pelvic reconstruction
Our nurse-midwives are certified by the American Midwifery Certification Board and hold master’s degrees in nursing, midwifery, science or public health. At Mass General, you can choose a nurse-midwife or obstetrician to care for you throughout your low- or moderate-risk pregnancy and birth. Our nurse-midwives will also meet you when triaging obstetric hospital visits and phone calls or when providing family planning services.
Mass General nurses were the first in Massachusetts to achieve Magnet status, one of the highest honors for exceptional nursing care. Our Magnet award-winning OB/GYN nurses work closely with physicians to offer compassionate, evidence-based patient care that incorporates the latest innovations and focuses on each patient’s unique needs.
As the largest teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, Mass General trains the next generation of providers in state-of-the-art care. Our department’s fellowship programs provide advanced training to physicians in three specialty areas of obstetrics and gynecology. Patients of our department may receive care from one of our fellows, supervised by the attending physicians.
