Nina Bhatia, MD
We are happy to announce that Dr. Nina Bhatia has recently joined our practice from the Institue for Female Pelvic Medicine in the Lehigh Valley, PA.

I recently joined Dr. Heather van Raalte, at Princeton Urogynecology, becoming only the second fellowship trained, board certified urogynecologist at University Medical Center of Princeton (UMCP) at Plainsboro.
I entered medical school with a strong interest in women's health. After completing my OB/GYN residency, I finished three years of fellowship training in urogynecology at St. Luke’s University Hospital & The Institute for Female Pelvic Medicine in Allentown, PA. Having trained at this leading center for urogynecology, I am able to provide comprehensive treatment options, even for women who have previously had no success with treatment.
I treat women with pelvic floor disorders such as bladder and bowel incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, voiding difficulties, recurrent urinary tract infections, bladder pain and some pelvic pain conditions. Incontinence and pelvic floor problems are quite common, affecting women of all ages. These conditions can be very bothersome, often preventing women from participating in the activities they love. Many women are silently dealing with these conditions for years before seeking help. Fortunately, there are a variety treatment options available. I enjoy listening to my patients and tailoring a treatment plan that is specific to their needs. Helping my patients regain control of these conditions and return to their normal lives is incredibly rewarding.
There are many treatment options that I offer, including conservative therapies for prolapse and incontinence, as well as a number of office-based procedures to help improve urinary and fecal incontinence. I perform a variety of surgeries including minimally invasive vaginal, abdominal, laparoscopic and robotic surgical repairs, as well as sacral neuromodulation. Many of these procedures are same-day or short overnight hospital stays that allow women to more quickly return to their normal activities. As an evolving specialty, there have been many advancements in the field. I have a strong interest in research, and have done research on minimally invasive surgery and its effect on sexual function. I am currently doing research on cutting-edge techniques to reduce urinary incontinence.
I have spent the majority of my life in the NewYork/New Jersey area. I grew up in Bergen County, graduated from New York University and recently relocated to the Princeton area. I’m looking forward to helping more and more women throughout Central New Jersey with these common, yet very treatable problems. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling and attending live musical events with my husband, Erik, who is a professional musician.
