Leslie Rickey, M.D., M.P.H.
Dr. Rickey is a urogynecologist/urologist who completed an accredited fellowship in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery. She is an assistant professor in the Department of Surgery (Urology/Urogynecology and Reconstructive Surgery). Dr. Rickey received her medical degree from Tulane University School of Medicine and went on to complete a general surgery internship and urology residency at Loyola University Medical Center. Her fellowship training in urogynecology took place in a unique program that integrated highly skilled physicians from both Urology and Gynecology programs. This experience has given her the expertise to provide the most advanced care available for women with problems related to the lower urinary tract and the pelvic floor (the group of muscles, ligaments, and nerves that support and help control the vagina, uterus, bladder, and rectum). Her research interests include surgical outcomes and identifying causes of pelvic organ prolapse.
Dr. Rickey also specializes in minimally invasive surgery and techniques to treat pelvic floor disorders such as urinary incontinence, cystoceles, rectoceles, and uterine prolapse. These procedures can be performed vaginally or using the daVinci robot system, resulting in smaller incisions, less post-operative pain, and shorter recovery time. One of the procedures Dr. Rickey performs for vaginal or uterine prolapse is a robotic sacrocolpopexy, which offers patients an alternative to the traditional open procedure that requires a large abdominal incision.
