Specialty/Research Focus

Maternal - Fetal Medicine; Obstetrics and Gynecology

 
Professional Summary:

My subspecialty of obstetrics and gynecology is maternal-fetal medicine, which involves caring for both mothers and unborn babies in high-risk pregnancies. As division director for maternal-fetal medicine and medical director of the Perinatal Center, I am responsible for promoting education, research, and systems of care that maintain and improve the safety and health outcomes for the mothers and infants of Buffalo and Western New York.
The Regional Perinatal Center at Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo provides the advanced level of care needed for the pregnancies referred for consultation or transfer for serious, and often life-threatening, conditions. Efficient and effective communications and collaboration with all the western New York hospitals and physicians providing obstetrical services are vital system responsibilities for our regional perinatal center. My colleagues and I also help train the physicians and research scientists who will continue to provide health improvements into the future. I have been especially honored to receive awards for teaching physicians in training.
My training and academic career has given me experience in a number of organizations and cultures that can be useful in designing, building, and managing complex systems of population based perinatal care. Most recently, I served as the initiating chair for hiring and designing a new department of obstetrics and gynecology for a women and children’s hospital being built in Doha, Qatar. Previous experience with the NY State Regional Perinatal System was extremely useful as I faced that task.
I am pleased to be back in New York now and excited to participate in the current challenges and opportunities we have to develop a world class center of excellence in perinatal care here in Buffalo.
