VIDEO: FAQs with OBHG – Do OBHG clinicians perform GYN surgeries?

As part of a new series, FAQs with OBHG, our teams met with clinicians to address common misconceptions about working as a hospitalist with Ob Hospitalist Group (OBHG). Dr. Jeffrey Manley has worked as an OB Hospitalist with OBHG since 2020. In the video, he describes his experience transitioning from a GYN-heavy private practice to hospitalist medicine. Like many OB/GYNs with similar backgrounds, Dr. Manley feared losing his surgical skills. Here, he addresses the misconception and explains how hospitalist medicine with OBHG can actually enhance GYN surgical skills.

“You can find yourself in a place that’s very OB-heavy. But when you work in a hospital that’s OB-heavy, remember that obstetrical patients can have very complex pelvic pathology. You may have a C-section that’s more difficult than your worst hysterectomy that you’ve ever performed […] I don’t think you lose your GYN skills and your surgical skills at all. I think you may actually improve your surgery skills because you’re probably doing more and you’re potentially doing more complex (surgeries) depending on the program that you’re at.”

Watch the video to learn more about Dr. Manley’s transition to OB hospitalist medicine.
