NewYork-Presbyterian, in collaboration with Weill Cornell Medicine, offers customized, evidence-based care to patients who may not find relief in a more “typical” medical setting. The program offers acupuncture, mind-body therapies, and relaxation techniques and provides guidance about nutrition, herbal supplements, and plant-based hormones.

Why Choose Us
Unique Multidisciplinary Programs for Fibroids & Endometriosis
At NewYork-Presbyterian, our fibroid treatment programs offer comprehensive, advanced treatment for women with uterine fibroids. Our patients have access to the latest fibroid treatments, including novel therapeutics, hormonal management, myomectomy and hysterectomy, laparoscopic-guided, and incisionless radiofrequency fibroid ablation.
The endometriosis treatment programs at NewYork-Presbyterian help patients navigate the complex issues surrounding endometriosis. Expert physicians in gynecology, gynecologic surgery, urogynecology, and pain management collaborate to formulate an individualized plan of care tailored to a woman’s unique condition, symptoms, and reproductive goals. Using fertility-sparing surgery and multispecialty management with reproductive endocrinologists, we provide superior care throughout the continuum of a woman’s reproductive years.
Experts in Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery
NewYork-Presbyterian’s gynecologic surgeons have unmatched expertise in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery (MIGS) to treat the most complex and challenging gynecologic conditions. Minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, including laparoscopy, robotic-assisted surgery, and vaginal approaches, offers huge benefits in diagnosing and treating conditions such as uterine fibroids and endometriosis, pelvic floor disorders, especially when fertility preservation is a priority. Compared to “open” surgery, MIGS provides surgeons with superior magnification and enhanced visibility, which results in a more accurate diagnosis and an opportunity for more thorough excisional treatment. Benefits of these less invasive approaches include faster recovery, less pain, less scarring, fewer complications, and shorter hospital stays.
Family Planning Services
We offer a full range of family planning services in a nonjudgmental, caring, and supportive environment. We provide education, access to contraception, and counseling to prevent unplanned pregnancies.
