Patrick Vetere, MD

Associate Director, Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery Director, Ob/Gyn Simulation and Continuing Medical Education Director, Gynecologic Surgical Training Lab Tel: 516-536-5656

Patrick F. Vetere, M.D., FACOG, FACS is currently Director of Ob/Gyn Simulation and Continuing Medical Education, and Associate Director of Minimally Invasive Surgery in the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology at Winthrop-University Hospital.

After receiving a bachelors degree in biology from St. John's University in Jamaica, NY, Dr. Vetere went on to pursue his medical studies at Creighton University School of Medicine in Omaha, Nebraska.  He graduated with an MD degree, Magna Cum Laude and was elected to both the Alpha Omega Alpha national medical honor society and the Alpha Signa Nu national Jesuit university honor society.

After graduation, Dr. Vetere completed a year of internal medicine residency in the then Nassau County Medical Center followed by a residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Winthrop. Following completion of his residency in 1978, he was invited to join the Chairman of the Department, Dr. Victor Alinovi, in practice.

In 1998 Dr. Vetere decided to limit his practice to gynecology and gynecologic surgery.  This allowed him to further pursue his clinical, research, and educational interests in minimally invasive, vaginal, and pelvic reconstructive surgery.  To further these interests, Dr. Vetere founded and has since been Director of the Winthrop-University Hospital Gynecologic Surgical Training Lab.  Currently, his surgical interests have expanded to include robotic assisted surgery. 

Dr. Vetere is a Diplomat of the American Board of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and a Fellow in the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the American College of Surgeons.  He is past president of both the Nassau County Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the Nassau Surgical Society and Associate Professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Medicine and SUNY Stony Brook School of Medicine. During his many years at Winthrop Dr. Vetere has and currently serves on numerous hospital and departmental committees.
