Sarah Collins, MD, is a board-certified surgeon whose practice focuses on urogynecology and reconstructive pelvic surgery. Dr. Collins is an expert in diagnosing and treating pelvic floor disorders, including pelvic organ prolapse, urinary and fecal incontinence, complex urogenital and rectovaginal fistulae, complex lower urinary tract injuries after pelvic surgery, and congenital genitourinary anomalies. Her skill and experience allow management of complex surgical problems through minimally invasive approaches whenever possible.
Because she understands the personal and private struggles that women with pelvic floor disorder face, Dr. Collins’ approach to care centers around being an advocate for her patients and prioritizing their healthcare experience from the first visit. She is heavily involved in creating and researching shared decision-making (SDM) tools for patients facing decisions about pelvic health treatment options. Her dedication to practice efficiency and streamlining the care experience is concentrated on ensuring that patients get the most out of every office and operating room encounter. She is a federally funded researcher and holds leadership roles in national and international professional organizations.
In addition to her surgical practice and research, Dr. Collins is passionate about teaching the next generation of gynecologic surgeons, providing training to medical students, residents and fellows. She also dedicates her time and surgical skill to an annual surgical mission to Rwanda, where she teaches local surgeons in the treatment of women with obstetric injuries and complex genitourinary and rectovaginal fistulae.
