Dr. Monteagudo has been working at Carnegie Imaging since 2015. Prior to joining Carnegie imaging, she spent 18 years at New York University School of Medicine. She grew up in the New York area and went to medical school in the Bronx at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Her fellowship in maternal-fetal medicine was completed at Columbia Presbyterian.
She spent all of her academic time in the New York area, mostly in Manhattan. During her residency at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, it took her a little while to figure out what exactly she wanted to do. After rotating through all the specialties, she realized that obstetrics and gynecology was the rotation that made her the happiest. Therefore, she decided to become an obstetrician/gynecologist.
After leaving her residency, she worked at an inner-city clinic for two years as a generalist, and once she noticed the need for maternal-fetal medicine specialists, she decided that that was something that she wanted to pursue. She went on to Columbia Presbyterian School of Medicine and completed her fellowship in maternal-fetal medicine.
“Maternal-Fetal Medicine is a specialty in which we take care of two patients, the mother and the baby,” explained Dr. Monteagudo. “There are different paths- one path is to spend more time taking care of the mother, and the other path is spending more time taking care of the fetus. I chose the latter and decided that I wanted to do imaging in order to be able to assess and take a look at the fetus to make sure the fetus was developing the way we should.”
