Lisa Dabney, MD, is director of Urogynecology and Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s and Mount Sinai West, where she has been a faculty member since 2000. Dr. Dabney is an experienced, board certified urogynecologist, with expertise in the full range of treatment options for urinary incontinence and pelvic-organ prolapse. In addition, she sees patients for general gynecologic visits and problems. Dr. Dabney is a skilled minimally-invasive surgeon, with special expertise in vaginal surgery for non-cancerous gynecologic problems. The vaginal route totally avoids incisions on the abdomen, and can be used for removal of fibroids, repair of pelvic organs and their support structures, or hysterectomy in non-cancerous cases. Vaginal surgery has been named the method of choice for such hysterectomies by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Dr. Dabney is a native New Yorker. She received her BS in biochemistry from Columbia University in 1990, and, in 1995, earned her medical doctorate from the University of California at Los Angeles. She completed residency training in obstetrics and gynecology at Boston’s Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, a teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School. She went on to complete fellowship training in urogynecology and pelvic reconstructive surgery with Robert Porges, MD, a well-known expert in the field, at New York University-Bellevue Medical Center in 2000. From 2002 until 2013, Dr. Dabney was a clinical assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons; currently, she is an assistant professor in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Science at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. She is a Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
