Each year more than 28,000 people turn to the obstetric and gynecology team for care and undergo nearly 6,000 surgeries at Mayo Clinic's campuses in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota. They're cared for by specialists with expertise in gynecologic oncology, minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, urogynecology, reproductive endocrinology and infertility, and obstetrics and maternal fetal medicine.

The department was established more than 100 years ago. Mayo Clinic gynecologic surgeons were among the earliest pioneers of simulation training.
