When you come to the Mayo Clinic Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, you will find support on your lifelong journey from childbearing age to menopause and beyond. Its team-based approach includes you as a partner in care, healing, hope and solutions to complex problems.

The clinic has one of the largest and most respected obstetrics and gynecology practices in the world, with more than 55 specialists committed to providing comprehensive, multidisciplinary medical and surgical care to women at its campuses in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota. Mayo Clinic Health System locations serve more than 60 communities in Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin. These sites bring Mayo Clinic obstetrics and gynecology care to their local communities.

Collaborative care, focused on you

The experts of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology work in multidisciplinary teams to develop an individualized treatment plan for each person after a thorough evaluation using the latest diagnostic technology. The team includes physicians, surgeons, proceduralists, certified nurse midwives, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, sonographers, embryologists and a dedicated nursing team.

Gynecologists and obstetricians also collaborate with experts in nearly every specialty to deliver effective, personalized care. They work closely with colleagues who specialize in pediatric surgery, digestive diseases (gastroenterology and hepatology), neurology, neurosurgery, urology, nephrology and hypertension, neonatology, oncology, laboratory medicine and pathology, clinical genomics, and other areas. This tradition of working together helps ensure your care team develops a treatment plan tailored to your needs and all aspects of your condition.

Experience

Gynecologic and obstetric experts at Mayo Clinic have experience diagnosing and treating a wide range of conditions, from common to complex. All locations provide a full range of gynecology services, from routine medical screenings to surgical reconstruction.

Each year the department cares for more than 28,000 women and performs nearly 6,000 surgeries at Mayo Clinic's campuses in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota. These women are cared for by specialists with expertise in gynecologic oncology, minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, urogynecology, reproductive endocrinology and infertility, and obstetrics and maternal fetal medicine. At the Family Birth Center on the clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, about 2,400 babies are delivered each year. The clinic offers perinatal education classes on its Minnesota campus and online. And a program called OB Nest aims to make prenatal care more convenient and supportive through at-home monitoring and online communities.

The department was established more than 100 years ago. Mayo Clinic gynecologic surgeons were among the earliest pioneers of simulation training. Mayo's experts continue to innovate in the diagnosis and treatment of obstetric and gynecologic conditions. Mayo Clinic is one of the few medical centers in the United States with the expertise to perform specialized fetal surgeries. And its surgeons are experts in all approaches to gynecologic surgery — from minimally invasive procedures that can lessen pain, reduce the length of hospital stay and shorten recovery time, to more complex open surgery.
