More than 2,000 major gynecological operations are performed annually at LAMC, so our residents are assured of a comprehensive surgical training. LAMC averages 2,500 deliveries annually. We actively promote VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean), and our c-section rate averages about 20 percent. Most ancillary services are available 24 hours a day, everyday.
