Welcome to “Division 22” of Capital Women’s Care. We are a group of board certified obstetricians and gynecologists serving Montgomery County, Maryland with conveniently located office locations in Rockville and Silver Spring.
Who is Division 22?
Our group was originally founded in the 1960’s by Drs.Band, Badwey, Goodridge and Perez. Their ideals provided the foundation upon which we still practice today, that is, they adopted a culture focused on compassion and caring, and developed legendary doctor-patient relationships. They have all retired and the tradition has been carried on by our current physicians.
For many of the doctors here, this is their first and only job after becoming an OB/Gyn. Many of our support staff have been with our group for ten+ years – we are a stable group committed to your health!
In December 1998, Capital Women’s Care was formed. The formation of a larger group practice has provided us the ability to continue practice independently in an ever changing healthcare climate. The core mission of Capital Women’s Care is to provide high quality medical care in a nurturing environment. Our expansive network ensures coordination with specialists to address your individual needs – including second opinions, high risk pregnancy care, diagnostic ultrasounds, and surgical interventions.
Capital Women’s Care is composed of 36 divisions that occupy 57 offices. There are over 200 healthcare providers including 165 doctors and 40 allied providers (CRNP, PA, Midwife). Capital Women’s Care provides services in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C.
Our division (22) is composed of 8 providers and two office locations. Clinically, only the physicians of Division 22 will provide you with medical care. We provide obstetric and gynecologic services at Holy Cross Hospital (Silver Spring), Shady Grove Adventist Hospital, and outpatient surgical procedures at the Maryland Surgery Center for Women.
Board certification requires us to meet rigorous ethical and professional standards with regard to providing quality healthcare for women, and signifies our commitment to the specialty. “Board Certified” also means we annually complete required continuing medical education hours by attending lectures and classes.
We specialize in low risk as well as high risk obstetrics, basic infertility evaluations and treatment and office and surgical gynecologic care.
Minimally invasive surgery involves small surgical incisions that help to reduce trauma to the body, allow for faster recovery, result in fewer complications and permit the convenience of outpatient surgery. Minimally invasive surgery includes laparoscopic, robotic, vaginal and hysteroscopic surgical techniques.
3 of our doctors are COEMIG designated surgeons which require completion of additional training and monitoring in the techniques of minimally invasive surgery.
