A San Francisco Bay Area Leader in Urogynecology

Dr. Heidi Wittenberg is recognized locally and nationally for her innovative surgical skills and commitment to improving women’s health.

“If your quality of life is affected by prolapse, leaking or retention, don’t assume that it is due to age. Get an assessment, get treatment, and then go enjoy your life.”
– Dr. Wittenberg

Dr. Wittenberg performed the first da Vinci robotic Sacrocolpopexy procedure for prolapse in San Francisco. She is frequently asked by other physicians to provide instruction on minimally invasive procedures, and is often referred to patients by other physicians for these specialized procedures.

Additionally, Dr. Wittenberg has the most experience in San Francisco with neuromodulation for urinary urgency, frequency, incontinence or retention. As a result, Dr. Wittenberg is in the vanguard of first generation surgeons to be board certified in Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery as of June 2013. Dr. Wittenberg is currently the Northern California Regional Specialist for Mesh Complications for Mayo Surgical.
