Biography

Dr. Glantz is Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology in the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine. Having grown up in Southern California and received degrees in Biology from UC San Diego and Medicine from UCLA, he migrated eastward for his OBGYN residency at UNC, Chapel Hill, then northward to Boston for six years as a generalist, and finally to Rochester for his Maternal-Fetal Medicine fellowship and a Masters in Public Health at the University of Rochester. His current clinical practice is in OBGYN ultrasound and outpatient care. Dr. Glantz is Director of Perinatal Outreach and the Perinatal Data System for the Finger Lakes Region, and associate editor of Strong PeriFacts. In addition, he is a member of various state- and nation-wide obstetrical quality improvement initiatives with the New York State Department of Health, the American College of OBGYN, and the March of Dimes.

Research

My primary focus is perinatal epidemiology, using birth certificate databases to evaluate practice variation and outcomes associated with obstetrical interventions (e.g., labor induction and cesarean section), and on perinatal outcomes associated with maternal obesity. A secondary focus has been on obstetrical ultrasound.
