Female bladder control problems and pelvic organ prolapse; urinary incontinence can become an issue for some women as they age. Unfortunately, many of the millions of women who suffer bladder issues do not seek care out of embarrassment. Urogynecology is an OB/GYN sub-specialty that treats these symptoms. Dr. Samra has great experience in treating female bladder issues both medically and with less invasive surgical procedures, such as the vaginal sling procedures.
Dr. Samra has a special interest in laparoscopic surgery. Laparoscopic or minimally invasive surgery offers faster recovery, shorter hospital stays, less pain and scarring. “Whenever possible, I like to avoid surgery to correct problems. If surgery is the only option, I try to do the least invasive surgery to correct the problem.”
Dr. Samra was an early adopter of the DaVinci Robotic System for surgery.

On our Staff:
"The staff in Dr. Samra's office was wonderful. Whenever I needed help they were there. They'd answer my questions over the weekend, in the evening - whenever I was anxious. And they communicated so well, I never had to repeat anything I was going through. Everytime I spoke to Dr. Samra, he already knew exactly what was going on with me."
“The staff genuinely cares about you and your baby. Every time I had an ultrasound they were the first to ask to see the pictures… I consider them friends now.“
On Dr. Ravinder Samra, Ob/Gyn:
"Dr. Samra was very personable and warm. He was so well informed and always made me feel like I was in the safest of hands. I recommend him to everyone. My family and friends just love him!"
Prior to meeting Dr. Samra I had a very difficult experience with a physician at a different hospital. Learning to trust another physician was a challenge for me. Dr. Samra sensed this and was so thorough, open and honest in his communication. He took the time to comfort not just me, but my whole family. I trust Dr. Samra implicitly."
"The staff at Dr. Samra's office was so friendly and responsive. Anytime I called with a concern they addressed it right away and they would always take the time to follow up later to make sure that everything was all right."
“Dr. Samra was easy to talk to and I was able to see him at every visit. He knew me by name and remembered our conversations from other visits. He made me feel like his most important patient.”
