High-Risk Maternal Fetal Medicine, Gynecology & Minimally Invasive Surgery, Urogynecology, and Pediatric & Adolescent Gynecology, Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, and Gynecology Oncology. This Department maintains tertiary and specialty care programs that are unique in Northwest Louisiana; we always use an integrated approach to health care with an interdisciplinary team of providers. Clinical services are provided in a highly competitive environment. 

The Department has important research efforts conducted by the faculty and residents that result in scientific publications each year. There is a constant effort on the part of the faculty to keep abreast of state-of-the-art advances in the specialty and to provide the student and resident staff with the most accurate and up-to-date information.
