Dr. Ana Monteagudo has been working at Carnegie Imaging since 2015. Prior to joining Carnegie Imaging, she spent 18 years at the New York University School of Medicine. She grew up in the New York area, went to medical school in the Bronx at Albert Einstein, and did her my in Maternal-Fetal Medicine at the College of Physicians & Surgeons of Columbia University at New York-Presbyterian/Columbia Medical Center.
“During my residency at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, it took me a little while to figure out what exactly I wanted to do,” Dr. Monteagudo said. “After rotating through all the specialties, I realized that obstetrics and gynecology was the rotation that made me the happiest. Therefore, I decided to become an obstetrician gynecologist. Subsequent to that, after leaving my residency, I worked in an inner-city clinic for two years as a generalist. And once I realized the need of Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist, I decided that this is something that I wanted to pursue. And subsequently I went to New York- Presbyterian/Columbia Medical Center and I did my fellowship in Maternal-Fetal Medicine.”
Maternal-Fetal Medicine is a specialty in which specialists take care of two patients: the mother and the baby. Dr. Monteagudo decided to choose the path of imaging to be able to look at the fetus and make sure the fetus was developing as it should.
