A Note from the Chair

Welcome to Emory Gynecology & Obstetrics

Penny CastellanoFor more than 75 years, Emory Gynecology and Obstetrics has provided excellence in women’s health care. We are committed to providing our patients with the highest quality and most advanced health care services through all stages of their lives, from adolescence through menopause and beyond.

Emory Gynecology and Obstetrics is part of Emory University’s School of Medicine, a globally recognized leader in health care innovation, and the Emory Clinic and Emory Healthcare, a comprehensive health system that includes hospitals, offices, and research facilities.

As part of a university-based health care system, our department has access to state-of-the-art resources and tools. Our physicians and researchers are engaged in translating the latest research and advances into effective practice. We also have the opportunity to collaborate across departments and disciplines, ensuring that complex cases receive quality care – all under one roof.

The department’s tradition of outstanding patient care is due to the expertise of our specialty and subspecialty trained physicians. Emory gynecologists and obstetricians are acknowledged as local, regional, national, and international experts in their fields.

Our physicians are all faculty members within Emory University’s School of Medicine, and our residency and fellowship programs attract the top candidates in the country. As teachers, our physicians must be aware of the very latest in evidence-based practices, which allows us to provide the most current treatment and preventive care.

I invite you to learn more about our department’s offerings and to let us know if we may be of service.
