Building world-class medical teams continues to be a top priority for Maimonides Health, especially in the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department at Maimonides Medical Center. In keeping with this priority, Dr. Justin K. To, MD, FACOG joins Maimonides as Associate Chairman of Gynecology and Co-Director of the Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery Fellowship.
With maternal health outcomes in the United States lagging behind other developed countries, to offer Brooklyn patients an additional highly experienced obstetrician/gynecologist (OB/GYN) to an expert team. Throughout his career, Dr. To has contributed to over 50 peer-reviewed studies and demonstrated a sincere commitment to educating the next generation of OB/GYNs.
Advocating for Patients and Leading New Programs
Dr. To is enthusiastic about joining Maimonides and collaborating with our visionary leadership. “I‘m most excited about working with a Chairman who truly has vision and with a department that is already excellent with room for significant growth.”
He doesn’t take this opportunity lightly—he views it as a responsibility to both patients, students, and colleagues. “I‘m looking forward to being an advocate for gynecology services and to supporting our division for the benefit of our diverse patient community. I‘m also very excited about helping to educate our fellows and guiding them to accelerate their clinical skills.”
New Programs and Innovations Are Underway
Under Dr. To’s leadership, we’re expecting several updates to the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department, as well as the Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery Fellowship. “We have many programs that will take hold this year, including an initiative to enhance the management of both ER and hospital patients with gynecologic issues, and another initiative to streamline the evaluation of patients with early pregnancy issues.”
These priorities in care aren’t a surprise given Dr. To’s dedication and passion for gynecologic surgery and gynecology as a whole. “I was always drawn to performing surgery. Fantastic mentors and the ability to have continuity of care with my patients drew me towards OB/GYN. It’s the best field in medicine!”
