Lisa Susanne Callegari, M.D., M.P.H.
Dr. Callegari joined the UW faculty as a Clinical Assistant Professor in 2011. She returned to academics after 5 years of general Obstetrics and Gynecology practice to focus on her interests in teaching and public health research. Her current research is based at the Health Services Research & Development (HSR&D) Center at the VA Puget Sound and the University of Washington. She focuses on interventions to decrease rates of unintended pregnancy in high-risk populations and to improve the delivery of preventive reproductive health care, including preconception and contraceptive care. She is particularly interested in improving the integration of reproductive health services into comprehensive primary care models for women.
"My goal is to provide women with the information and support they need to make the right decisions about their own health and well-being. I enjoy getting to know each and every patient as an individual, and believe in working together with women to develop a treatment plan that addresses their individual goals and needs."
In her free time, Dr. Callegari loves to be outside running, biking, hiking, camping, skiing, or just playing with her three kids.
Dr. Callegari cares for women with all gynecologic conditions, including treatment of abnormal bleeding, pelvic pain, cervical dysplasia, fibroids, endometrial hyperplasia, prolapse and incontinence. She has special training in minimally invasive laparoscopy, including laparoscopic total and supracervical hysterectomy. She has a special interest as well in helping women to develop reproductive life plans and navigate their contraception, miscarriage, and abortion care needs.
