Dr. Norman Ginsberg is an obstetrician specializing in early prenatal testing and high-risk pregnancies. With more than 30 years of practice, Dr. Ginsberg has dedicated his efforts to make obstetrical care safer and more easily obtainable for women. He is frequently invited to present his research internationally and has published on the safe management of twin pregnancies and has extensive experience with high order multiple pregnancies. For his pioneering efforts to advance the technique of Chorionic Villi Sampling (CVS), he is often referred to as the father of CVS in the United States. As a result of his efforts, CVS is now available throughout the world and a standard for early prenatal diagnosis.

Together with his colleagues at Reproductive Genetics, he has developed the use of pre-implantation genetics into a recognized and reliable method of avoiding diseases in the newborn and making it possible to cure some siblings of rare genetic diseases.

With long-term interest in ultrasound, he is currently exploring the use of 3-D ultrasound of the ear as an early marker for Down syndrome. Other interests include early detection of spina bifida and research on its cause, and new directions toward therapy. Dr. Ginsberg practices general gynecology as well and can manage most gynecological conditions. Working with Dr. Ginsberg, patients can expect state-of-the-art therapy, offered in courteous and sensitive manner.
