Dr. Robert Samuelson will be the new addition to the Memorial Regional Health Women’s Health team, which will offer comprehensive surgical medical and gynecological care. Starting June 1, it will help Craig’s patients one to two weeks a month.
Its goal is to help MRH provide a high level of care close to home so that women and their families do not have to travel far for their women’s health appointments.
“I’ve always had an interest in health and surgery,” Dr. Samuelson said. “I like to practice in underserved areas and I knew Craig offered many medical options for locals, but not specifically for GYN care. I hope to bring my experience to this area for patients.”
More offers than before
MRH family practice providers offer general women’s health services, such as annual exams, preventive tests, and continuing education, but Dr. Samuelson will greatly help women in the Moffat County community.
“Family medicine providers provide excellent general medical care to women, but I hope to bring the surgical piece to the table to help you with operations such as hysterectomies, biopsies, and incontinence procedures,” she said.
Other common gynecology procedures include laparoscopy, D&C, endometrial ablation, hysteroscopy, tubal ligation, and pelvic support surgery.
