CU Doctors are here for you!
Our clinics are open and able to serve you during this time for urgent in-person visits as well as virtual health services. Please call our clinics directly to schedule an appointment for both in person and virtual health.
Our number one priority is the health and safety of our patients, their family members, as well as our health care team. To honor this commitment we have implemented the following procedures:
- Non-urgent medical appointments should be converted to telehealth visits or rescheduled if telehealth is not feasible.
- Please bring your own face mask or covering to wear. Patients checking in must tell staff if they have: A fever, cold symptoms (cough, sore throat, runny nose, shortness of breath); Flu symptoms (fever, chills, body aches, etc.).
- Adult patients may be allowed one asymptomatic person (at least 17 years old) for support; however, we reserve the right to deem a support person unnecessary at any time.
- Pediatric patients may be allowed one asymptomatic adult (i.e. parent, guardian) for support.
- For pediatric patients, please check the Children's Hospital Colorado website for updated COVID-19 related patient information.
Please call us about your current health care concerns. Please take care in following current public health guidelines. Please visit the Colorado COVID-19 website, for more information.

Clinical Interest for Patients
I have dedicated my career to treating women suffering from pelvic floor disorders, which includes urinary and fecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, urogenital fistulas, interstitial cystitis and urethral diverticuli. I treat these conditions with a wide variety of nonsurgical and surgical treatment options. I also routinely utilize minimally invasive surgical techniques including vaginal, laparoscopic and robotic approaches for the correction of pelvic organ prolapse.
I believe that it is my responsibility to provide women with the most up to date medical knowledge and treatment options available for their condition(s), and to engage them in all aspects of their medical decision making so that they can decide which treatment option is best for their lifestyle.
I am also passionate about advancing the science in our field. In my laboratory, we are working to understand the effects of aging, menopause and childbirth on the integrity of the tissues that support the pelvic organs, with the ultimate goal to prevent pelvic organ prolapse and to develop new treatment options for women.
I enjoy spending time with my husband and three children, cooking, traveling, and skiing.
