Research

The Division of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Hadassah Medical Center prides itself on being a forerunner in the field. As a university hospital, there are always ongoing studies and research carried out by staff members of our department. Our studies aim to further understand conditions, discover new methods of treatments and prevent development of illnesses. Here are a few of our current, ongoing research studies.
