WGM Obstetrics and Gynecology is primarily associated with Huntington Hospital, a 400 bed comprehensive community hospital located in the middle of the north shore of Long Island. Huntington Hospital is a member the Northwell Health System. It was the first hospital on Long Island to receive the prestigious Magnet Award, an honor that recognizes nursing excellence. Huntington Hospital is the only hospital on Long Island, and only the second in New York State, to receive Magnet certification four consecutive times. At the time of its fourth consecutive successful certification, only 33 hospitals nationwide had achieved that distinction. Per US News and World Report, Huntington Hospital ranks in the top 5% of all New York hospitals, and is the highest ranked community hospital in the state for the last two years. The maternity unit was recently refurbished and updated. It is currently the most comfortable, private, and family-centered obstetrical unit on all of Long Island. The high quality of care is assured by the 24 hour in-house presence of Magnet-certified nurses, neonatologists, anesthesiologists, and obstetricians. The maternity unit also has its own private entrance and dedicated parking lot.
WGM Obstetrics and Gynecology is well known for expertise in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery. Dr Wagner is an expert gynecologic surgeon who specializes in laparoscopic, vaginal and robotic surgery. He is board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology as well as Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery. For 25 years, his practice has been devoted to the promotion and advancement of minimally invasive techniques in gynecologic surgery. Surgical patients are referred to WGM from the entire metropolitan area. Today, WGM continues the tradition as as pioneer in gynecologic surgery. We are the only gynecologic surgical practice that routinely uses the LESS approach for virtually all gynecological surgeries. LESS involves laparoscopic or robotic surgery performed through a single, small, often invisible, umbilical incision. Surgery done via the LESS technique is less painful, has fewer complications, and is associated with a faster recovery than traditional laparoscopic or robotic surgery.
