Dr. Geeta Sharma is Board Certified in both General Obstetrics and Gynecology and Perinatology. As a specialist in Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM), Dr. Geeta Sharma is an expert in recognizing and dealing with the wide range of risk factors and complications that can affect mothers and their babies at all stages of pregnancy. The primary focus of her practice is perinatology. She also is an expert in amniocentesis and cordocentesis (fetal cord blood sampling or transfusion) procedures.
Many of Dr. Sharma’s patients are older women, have undergone fertility therapies or may have a medical condition that requires a high risk specialist. To learn more about what may constitute a high risk pregnancy, kindly refer to www.smfm.org and select the patient resources section entitled “What is Maternal-Fetal Medicine." These factors fit the profile of patients often referred to Weill Cornell’s renowned MFM practice.
Weill Cornell is recognized as one of the world’s leading centers for clinical practice, research and teaching in the rapidly developing field of high risk obstetrics. For knowledgeable healthcare consumers and referring physicians throughout the NY-Metropolitan area, Weill Cornell is the preferred provider of health care services for women who are or want to become pregnant.
As someone who has experienced Weill Cornell’s Ob/Gyn department as a medical student, physician, patient and parent, Dr. Sharma believes its level of patient care is as extraordinary as its levels of quality and expertise.
Dr. Sharma comes by her interest in medicine naturally. She was raised in a family of physicians, and her mother is also a high risk Ob/Gyn physician. In addition to the practice of medicine, Dr. Sharma has a long-standing interest in issues of international health and maternal well-being.
