Meeting the Needs of Women
Every woman is an individual with unique healthcare needs. In the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Medical University of South Carolina, the staff embraces this philosophy as they strive to promote compassion and respect with the very best in medical and surgical care. This approach has served us over the last 185 years and as the region’s leading provider of women’s services, we welcome the opportunity to care for you, your family, and friends.
Our physicians have trained at the very best residency and fellowship programs in the country. This year we were honored by U.S. News & World Report as one of the best hospitals for gynecology in the nation. We are continuing our tradition of attracting outstanding faculty with the recruitment of South Carolina’s first female gynecologic oncologist, Dr. Jennifer Young, who was the 2002 valedictorian of MUSC College of Medicine.
The Ob/Gyn Department engages in exciting research studies and clinical trials. Examples include participating in a national study to redefine standards for normal fetal growth in uncomplicated pregnancies by Dr. Roger Newman. Other research includes a study of preeclampsia by Drs. Chris Robinson and Donna Johnson, the effect of environmental marine health on reproductive outcomes, and drug therapy during pregnancy.
