WGM Obstetrics and Gynecology is located in Huntington and East Northport, Long Island. Founded in 1994, WGM offers expert, comprehensive woman's care.
Our obstetric practice is based in Huntington Hospital, a 400 bed comprehensive community hospital located in the middle of the north shore of Long Island. Huntington Hospital is a member of the North Shore/LIJ Health System, and was recently ranked the 7th best hospital in NY State by US News and World Report, and it ranked higher than any other hospital on Long Island. Huntington was also the first hospital on Long Island to receive the prestigious Magnet award, an honor that recognizes nursing excellence. It was the only hospital in the state to be Magnet certified twice consecutively. The Maternity Unit offers expert care in a comfortable family-centered environment. The quality of care is assured not only by the presence of Magnet nurses, but also by the presence of in-house neonatologists and anesthesiologists.
Our gynecologic practice is well known for expertise in minimally invasive surgery. Dr. Wagner is an expert gynecologic surgeon who specialize in laparoscopic, vaginal and robotic surgery. For over 20 years, our practice has been dedicated to the promotion and advancement of minimally invasive gynecologic surgery. We have taught surgical methods, published studies, presented at national meetings, and invented techniques for less invasive surgery. Surgical patients are referred to our practice from the entire metropolitan area. Today, WGM continues that tradition as a pioneer in developing LESS (Laparo-Endoscopic Single-Site) surgery. LESS involves laparoscopic surgery performed through a single, small, often invisible umbilical incision. We routinely use the LESS approach to perform hysterectomies and other gynecologic operations. Currently, we are the only practitioners in New York offering the LESS option to most of our patients having gynecologic surgery.
