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 on 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
Your experience in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is guided by a team of experts. You'll receive an individualized care plan based on your goals and a thorough evaluation using the latest diagnostic technology. The team may include doctors, surgeons, proceduralists, certified nurse midwives, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, sonographers, embryologists and a dedicated nursing team.
Gynecologists and obstetricians also work with doctors in many other specialties to deliver effective, personalized care. Frequent partners include specialists in pediatric surgery, pediatric cardiac surgery, digestive diseases (gastroenterology and hepatology), neurology, neurosurgery, urology, nephrology and hypertension, neonatology, oncology, laboratory medicine and pathology, and clinical genomics.
Our gynecologic and obstetric experts 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 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. Our experts continue to innovate in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions of the reproductive system. 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 — including minimally invasive procedures that can lessen pain, reduce the length of hospital stay and shorten recovery time.
