looking for an OB GYN in the NY metro area and pregnancy advice


I know that we are not allowed to post doctor recommendations on the forum, but I'm wondering if someone can send me a message to recommend a high risk ob gyn in the NY metro area - someone who is qualified to deal with spinal patients.
I am fused from L4 to S1 due to spondylolisthesis / pars fractures.

I'm also interested in any anecdotal advice. I read on the forums that some people elected to have a c-section in order to avoid aggravating their back and some of the pregnancies seem to have hastened the adjacent segment deterioration.

Any information is welcome.

    You may want to contact the EDITED To remove facility name. I believe they may have a referral list. Good luck.
