Dr. Cabbad is board certified in obstetrics and gynecology as well as maternal fetal medicine and has over 40 years of experience caring for families with high risk pregnancies and providing consultation to physicians who also treat high risk pregnancies. He served as the former director of obstetrics at Kings County Hospital before going to The Brooklyn Hospital Center where he took on the role of chief of Maternal Fetal Medicine, establishing an active perinatal diagnostic center that has performed over 10,000 fetal assessments a year. He served as program director of The Brooklyn Hospital Centers residency training program and as chairman of the department of Obstetrics and Gynecology for 20 years.
With years of experience helping mothers with high risk pregnancies and reoccurring pregnancy losses, Dr. Cabbad is one of the foremost experts in transabdominal cerclage, or TAC procedures. A TAC involves an incision in the lower abdomen through which a small, woven synthetic band is placed high on the cervix. The band supports the cervix, preventing it from opening and losing a pregnancy. He is the first physician on Staten Island capable of performing this procedure.
