The Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics at the Marienhaus Klinikum St. Elisabeth Neuwied regularly performs all standard operations of its specialization field. The director of the Department is Prof. Dr. med. Richard Berger. The Department has a unique experience in endoscopic surgery, the so-called keyhole surgery. Due to the high technical standards, there are used all diagnostic and therapeutic methods. These even include resection of fibroids, endometrial ablation and a total hysterectomy.

In the field of gynecological oncology the Department at the Marienhaus Klinikum St. Elisabeth Neuwied is focused on medical care of patients with malignant diseases of the genital organs. The comprehensive treatment usually requires a concerted cooperation with various disciplines. The Gynecologic Cancer Center at the Marienhaus Klinikum St. Elisabeth Neuwied is staffed with a team of gynecologists, surgeons, oncologists in the field of internal medicine, specialists in radiation therapy, radiologists, specialist in nuclear medicine and pathologists. 

The Perinatal Center of maximum medical care (Level I / DEGUM Level II) functions within the Department. With about 1,200 deliveries a year, the Center is the largest one in the north of Rhineland-Palatinate. The tight cooperation with the pediatricians of the Section for Newborns is essential for providing medical care during high-risk and multiple pregnancies. There are annually born 50 babies with the weight up to 1,500 g. 

Since early 2010, the Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics at the Marienhaus Klinikum St. Elisabeth Neuwied has been engaged into the active collaboration with the Clinic for Prenatal Medicine and Clinical Genetics in Meckenheim-Bonn-Neuwied. The physicians of this clinic regularly provide outpatient counseling in the Marienhaus Klinikum St. Elisabeth Neuwied. At the same time, they use the most advanced methods for prenatal diagnosis, ultrasound examinations (Doppler ultrasound of vessels in mother and child) and heart examination of the unborn baby.
