Aster OB/GYN - Womens Healthcare
At Aster OB/GYN in New York City, Dr. Jeffrey Yu and Dr. Farris Fahmy offer both routine checkups and specialized procedures to women in all stages of life. The dynamic practice offers women relief from heavy periods and painful cramps through minimally invasive procedures that do not require hospitalization; after these procedures, patients are able to resume their normal activities within minutes of walking out of the practice.
For women who do not want to have more children, Aster OB/GYN offers a simple office procedure called hysteroscopic sterilization. During the procedure, which generally takes under 15 minutes, the doctor places two tiny inserts within the fallopian tubes. The body's tissue grows around the inserts, and after three months, reproductive activity is completely blocked. The practice also performs endometrial ablations, which treat the lining of the uterus to stop pelvic pain and heavy bleeding from uterine fibroids. Aster OB/GYN holds C-M accreditation with the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc.
Outside of the doctors' expertise in minimally invasive surgery, Aster OB/GYN offers services in the areas of major surgery, pregnancy care, and adolescent gynecology. The practice also assists clients with a variety of birth control solutions, including intrauterine devices (IUDs) and other hormonal methods. In case of emergencies, Aster OB/GYN guarantees same-day care.
Both physicians at Aster OB/GYN specialize in obstetrics and gynecology. The Medical Director, Dr. Farris Fahmy, completed residencies at New York State institutions including Saint Vincent Catholic Medical Centers and St. Joseph's Medical Center, as well as a fellowship at Montefiore Medical Center. Dr. Jeffrey Yu obtained his medical degree from Albany Medical College and secured residencies at Westchester Medical Center and St. Luke's-Roosevelt Medical Center. Together, the physicians accommodate a variety of patients, from those just entering puberty to women experiencing menopause.
