Get to know Maternal-Fetal Medicine Physician, Laura A. Gorski, DO, who serves patients in Nevada.
Dr. Gorski is a leading maternal-fetal medicine physician with High Risk Pregnancy Center in Las Vegas, Henderson, and Reno, Nevada. In addition to maternal-fetal medicine care, she performs most of the chorionic villus sampling procedures for the practice. Dr. Gorski is fellowship-trained in the chorionic villus sampling procedure, which is an advanced prenatal test that entails the removal and testing of a small sample of cells from the placenta to check if the baby has a genetic or chromosomal condition, such as Down’s syndrome, Edwards’ syndrome or Patau’s syndrome.
“I chose to become an ob/gyn because I was fascinated with the miracle of life, particularly birth. I decided to further specialize in maternal-fetal medicine because it allows me to use my advanced skills and leading-edge technology to help women with elevated risks have the healthiest pregnancy outcome possible. I enjoy the personal side of this subspecialty, too. Building relationships with my patients, their families and their obstetricians is essential to the care I provide and it’s a part of my job that I love”, says Dr. Gorski.
Equipped with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology acquired at John Carroll University in Cleveland, Ohio, Dr. Gorski completed her Doctor of Osteopathy degree Magna Cum Laude at the Kansas City Osteopathic School of Medicine in Kansas City, Missouri, in 1994. She then conducted her obstetrics and gynecology residency at Midwestern University Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine in Chicago, Illinois (1999). Dr. Gorski ultimately performed fellowships in maternal-fetal medicine at the University of Tennessee Memphis School of Medicine in Memphis, Tennessee (2000), and the Jefferson Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (2002).
Following the completion of his formal training, Dr. Gorski became board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology and the sub-specialty of maternal-fetal medicine by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology. The mission of the ABOG is to define standards, certify obstetricians and gynecologists, and facilitate continuous learning to advance knowledge, practice, and professionalism in women’s health.
Maternal-fetal medicine, also known as perinatology, is a branch of medicine that focuses on managing health concerns of the mother and fetus prior to, during, and shortly after pregnancy. Maternal-fetal medicine specialists are physicians who subspecialize within the field of obstetrics.
Dr. Gorski is a distinguished member of the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine, the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine, the American College of Osteopathic Obstetricians & Gynecologists, the Nevada State Medical Association, the American Osteopathic Association, and the Clark County Medical Society.
