Dr. Shelby Morrisroe graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from UCLA, studying human physiology. She then went on to receive her medical degree from Georgetown University in Washington D.C.
Dr. Morrisroe completed her urologic surgical residency at the University of Pittsburgh Health Sciences Center in Pennsylvania. She then completed a two-year fellowship in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery at UCLA, training under the world renowned pelvic floor surgeon, Dr. Shlomo Raz.
As the only female urologist in the South Bay, Dr. Morrisroe actually bridges the gap between gynecologic and urologic medicine. The Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship is recognized by both the American Board of Urology and the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and Dr. Morrisroe is the only doctor in the South Bay who has completed this fellowship. She offers patients training and experience in a myriad of evaluative and management techniques for pelvic pathology. She also treats patients with prior failed reconstructions, including complications resulting from the use of vaginal and/or urethral synthetic mesh. From the simplest urinary tract infection to complex fistula disease to pelvic organ prolapse, Dr. Morrisroe is trained to diagnose and treat any and all female urologic issues.
Dr. Morrisroe is originally from Sacramento, California but is happy to call the South Bay her home. You can visit her website at: shelbymorrisroemd.com.
