Justin S. Brandt, MD, a nationally recognized specialist in managing high-risk pregnancies, has joined NYU Langone Health as director of the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine in NYU Grossman School of Medicine's Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
Also named associate professor in the department, Dr. Brandt joins the institution from Robert Wood Johnson—Barnabas Health, where he served as director of performance improvement and quality assurance in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, director of obstetric ultrasound, and associate professor at Rutgers' Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.
Each year, more than 15,000 babies are born throughout the NYU Langone system, and there are times when specialized care is needed during some of these pregnancies. Maternal-fetal medicine is an integral part of obstetric care, and I'm thrilled to have a nationally known expert like Dr. Brandt leading our team. I am confident he will continue to help ensure the best possible outcomes for pregnant people and their babies that require high-risk care at NYU Langone."

While Dr. Brandt's proficiency is widespread in managing the health and wellbeing of pregnant people and their babies during high-risk pregnancies, he has particular interest in providing obstetric services for transgender people and people with diverse gender identities.
"I am dedicated to providing evidence-based, comprehensive, and inclusive care and am thrilled to join NYU Langone as the new director of maternal-fetal medicine," said Dr. Brandt. "While most of the care obstetrician-gynecologists provide for people with diverse gender identities is routine, gender-expansive individuals have unique needs. I'm committed to ensuring that all people with birthing potential have access to affirming high-risk care in our practice and beyond."
Dr. Brandt replaces Ashley S. Roman, MD, who in December 2021 became vice chair for clinical affairs—obstetrics in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and service chief for obstetrics at NYU Langone's Tisch Hospital.
