When it comes to her gynecologic health, it’s important that a woman receives total care, whether she is dealing with a medical issue or if she is healthy and in need of routine care. In 2011, U.S. News and World Report named the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Michigan among the top 20 gynecology programs in the U.S. We believe this designation is the result of our compassion, our experience and our resources to provide exceptional care and groundbreaking research.
We provide comprehensive treatment for patients with normal and high-risk pregnancies, and we expertly address a wide range of gynecologic and women's health concerns, including:
- Adolescent gynecology
- Care for women with developmental disabilities
- Comprehensive infertility services, including in vitro fertilization
- Genetic counseling
- Gynecologic management for women with breast cancer
- Gynecologic urology
- Management of women with BRCA gene mutations (genes susceptible to breast cancer)
- Cervical, Ovarian and other gynecologic cancers
- Pelvic pain
- Premenstrual syndrome
- Prenatal diagnostics
- Reproductive gynecology, including menopause
Our program, based on the philosophy of multispecialty team care, provides well-rounded services for women, including midwifery, a family planning clinic, fetal diagnosis and therapy, and minimally invasive surgery. We have been recognized as a National Center of Excellence in Women's Health.
The University of Michigan Von Voigtlander Women’s Hospital
In November 2011, we are excited to move into our new home in the state-of-the-art 12-story C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital and Von Voigtlander Women’s Hospital facility.
The new women’s hospital will encompass a birthing center, a perinatal assessment center, a high-risk labor and delivery area, a neonatal intensive care unit and a fetal surgery program. The entire facility is the length of two football fields at 1.1 million square feet and will consist of two conjoined towers that will bridge inpatient and outpatient services.
The new Birth Center will feature 50 large and private labor, delivery and recovery rooms to support the natural progress of labor, birth and family bonding as well as access to cutting-edge technologies and interventions.
