Alison Catherine Weidner, MD
I am an active clinician/researcher treating women with various forms of pelvic floor dysfunction throughout my career. I maintain a busy clinical practice and particularly enjoy and excel at clinical and surgical training of Iearners at all levels in the medical setting.
Early in my career I designed and executed innovative clinical research with broad-reaching impact on our knowledge of the mechanism of neuromuscular injury to the pelvic floor and its ultimate contribution to pelvic floor dysfunction. Currently, my clinical research efforts are dedicated to designing and implementing innovative studies with other investigators within the NICHD-funded Pelvic Floor Disorders Network with direct influence on clinical management of common pelvic disorders.
