Chair Message

A Message from Dr. Smith

Welcome to the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology.  Our mission is to improve the health of Nebraska through premier educational programs, innovative research, patient-centered medical care and outreach to the community and the region.  We remain dedicated to serve underserved populations in our varied clinical programs.

Our clinical services include General Obstetrics and Gynecology, Maternal-Fetal Medicine (High-risk Obstetrics), Urogynecology and Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery, Gynecologic Oncology and Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility.  Our research division is comprised of PhDs with interests in reproductive physiology and onco-fertility. 

Our discipline is a part of the core curriculum for the College of Medicine and each medical student rotates through our department.  General and subspecialty electives are also available for 4th year students.  Our fully accredited residency program has four residents at each level and we are proud to have trained the majority of Obstetricians and Gynecologists the state.  Our educational partners, Methodist Health System and the Heartland Center for Reproductive Medicine, have been an integral part of training program for more than 30 years and add important dimension to the educational experience.

Our faculty physicians provide patient care at Nebraska Medicine.  Supported by a trained staff of nurses, Advance Practice Providers including Certified Nurse Midwives see patients primarily at the Olson Center for Women’s Health.  This multidisciplinary practice site, located at the main campus of Nebraska Medicine, was formed in 1993 through the generosity and foresight of Dr. Leland and Mrs. Dorothy Olson.   The center provides Ob/Gyn care as well as social work, mental health, breast imaging, general internal medicine and endocrinology services.  Outreach sites staffed by our subspecialists are an important part of our practice.  Finally, faculty physicians provide care at our Village Pointe location in west Omaha.

In 2018 Gynecology was the only nationally ranked specialty in the state of Nebraska in an annual evaluation by U.S. News and World Report.  This welcome recognition is indicative of the quality programs provided in our department.
