Pediatric & Adolescent Gynecology

Pediatric and adolescent gynecology, a division of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Long Island Jewish Medical Center and North Shore University Hospital, focuses on both common and rare disorders of the reproductive organs in children and teens.

Gentle, Comprehensive Gynecological Care

Our care of young female patients is performed in a positive, healing environment, using an interdisciplinary team approach.  We recognize that gynecologic problems encountered in the pediatric and adolescent populations are unique to this age group and require different physician skills than those utilized with adults.  Since we are directly connected to the Cohen Children's Medical Center of New York , we interact daily with specialists in all aspects of pediatric care.

Our goal is to provide coordinated, compassionate, comprehensive, quality healthcare to young girls. Our experience and expertise is combined with state-of-the-art technology, allowing us to tailor each treatment plan to the patient’s unique situation and clinical condition. Our physicians are specifically trained in minimally invasive diagnostic and surgical procedures including vaginoscopy, colposcopy, laparoscopy and pediatric pelvic reconstructive surgery. In each case, special attention is given to the preservation of future fertility and reproductive capacity.

Our knowledgeable, caring physicians are pioneers in the field of pediatric gynecology and combine world-class diagnostics with treatment options specifically designed to meet the unique needs of young patients.
