Moeen Abu-Sitta, M.D.
As a gynecologist as well as an urogynecologist, Dr. Moeen Abu-Sitta sees women of all ages and treats most conditions that are found both pre and post menopause. His subspecialty is in the field of urogynecology and reconstructive pelvic (vaginal) surgery. One of his main focuses is diagnosing and treating urinary incontinence and conditions that relate to loss of pelvic, uterine and vaginal support. As treatment options vary from patient to patient and from one condition to another, he strives to approach each patient in an individual and personal way and together form the most appropriate plan for addressing her needs. Improving the quality of his patient‘s lives is his number one goal. He strives to stay abreast of the latest techniques and treatments through attending training and seminars that specialize in this field. He started his training in this area more than twenty-five years ago.
While in private practice for the past decade or so, he was also a faculty member of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at UB. This involved teaching and training both residents and medical students. He has always enjoyed academic medicine and recently returned to his former position as full time associate professor and a member of UBMD. He enjoys this partnership and knows that his patients will also benefit from this association.
Although he appreciates recognition from colleges and students in the form of awards and honors, the most meaningful experience he has had as a physician was overseas. He was fortunate enough to travel to the Gaza Strip in both 2006 and 2010 for a humanitarian medical mission. Gaza is one of the poorest and most isolated areas of the world and the need for medical services cannot be overstated. His purpose was to train local physicians in the field of urogynecology and treat as many women as possible himself. He hopes to be able to repeat this mission in the future should circumstances allow.
