Rui Wang, MD
I had a great experience with OB/GYN in medical school and then worked closely with some amazing urogynecologists during my residency. I was drawn to the hands-on, surgical aspect of the subspecialty. I also love that I can have a major impact on patients’ quality of life. It’s a big part of why I chose to specialize in urogynecology.
I treat the full range of pelvic floor disorders including pelvic organ prolapse, fistulas and urethra diverticulum, as well as urinary incontinence and overactive bladder. As a urogynecologist, I offer patients both surgical and non-surgical treatment options which include behavior modification, lifestyle changes, physical therapy, medications, in-office procedures, and surgery.
My goal is to provide patients with the best evidence-based medicine and to help guide them to the choice that is right for them. By working with pelvic floor physical therapists, urologists, and other specialties, I’m able to offer a multidisciplinary approach to patient care.
Robotic and minimally invasive surgery have really changed the field of urogynecology. Using these techniques, patients can receive the same great results as traditional surgery with faster recovery and less downtime.
It’s important for me to establish a good relationship with my patients. My first goal in meeting a patient is to make them feel comfortable and acknowledge that their issues are quite common and there is no need to be embarrassed. I want my patients to feel safe sharing their concerns and struggles.
My values really align with those of Penn Medicine and I’m excited to be part of a healthcare system that provides evidence-based medicine and prides itself on excellence of care. I enjoy living in Princeton area with my husband and son.
