Gynecologic Surgery and Obstetrics is an exciting and challenging field of medicine! Our unique specialty covers a wide scope of clinical and surgical experiences.  Furthermore we enjoy the opportunities to be part of many life-changing events in our patients’ lives. The GSO Department is the premier organization in the MHS for women’s healthcare, and we are critical to military medical readiness for service members, their families and all individuals seeking obstetric and gynecologic care. We lead advocacy for and provide the highest quality patient-centered care emphasizing readiness, education, training, and research for our specialty.

Our focus is women's health care, including care for individuals of all gender identities.  Our specialty covers many areas.  During a clinical day, you could deliver a baby, perform a major surgery that ultimately allows a servicemember to return to the military mission, counsel a couple experiencing infertility, and treat a precancerous cervical lesion.

In gynecologic surgery and obstetrics, clinicians are experts in surgical procedures including minimally invasive surgery, ambulatory care, and office practice while managing pregnancy, delivery, postpartum care, and potential complications. Our specialty also offers fellowship training opportunities in Gynecologic Oncology, Urogynecology, Maternal-Fetal Medicine, Reproductive Endocrinology and Minimally Invasive Surgery.

From the bench, to the bedside, to the battlefield, we prepare our students, staff, and faculty to operate in every environment in which the MHS deploys. Our department leads research and advocacy for our patients, and their families. We build leaders in gynecologic surgery and obstetric healthcare with the patient as the center of every effort.  We are honored to care for our patients and teach students and residents in a dynamic and supportive environment.
