The Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology at UTMB has experienced tremendous growth in the last 20 years, with significant expansion in all 3 areas critical to our mission: patient care, research, and education.
As the Chairman of the department, I have the fortunate opportunity to spearhead a Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology that is among the most productive and innovative of its kind in the world. Our faculty have achieved pioneering insights into the fetal origins of adult diseases, the implications of pregnancy for women’s long-term health, the development of screening tools for maternal alcohol consumption, and the development of pharmaceuticals designed specifically for expectant mothers.
I am excited about the investments that our institution is making in the area of Women’s Health. From our rich historic presence on Galveston Island to the dynamic expansion of women’s primary and specialty care services on the Mainland, we are striving to be a beacon of healthcare in the community. With world-class physicians and researchers, we seek to change the landscape of women’s healthcare, both locally and across the globe.
I am enthusiastic about our future, our faculty and our commitment to serving our community.
