About Dr. Mwesigwa
Dr. Patti Mwesigwa is a transplanted Texan who completed her OBGYN residency in D.C. at Medstar Georgetown University Hospital and Washington Hospital Center. After residency, she completed a three-year fellowship in Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery within the Department of Urology at UCLA.
She specializes in incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, and pelvic floor dysfunction. Dr. Mwesigwa is skilled in fistula repairs, managing complex voiding dysfunction, and performing both native-tissue and graft-augmented pelvic reconstruction.
Dr. Mwesigwa is fellowship-trained in reconstructive pelvic surgical techniques, and is excited to offer uterine-sparing prolapse repairs. She offers minimally-invasive robotic surgeries and natural-orifice transvaginal repairs, along with traditional open and laparoscopic techniques. She is one of the few gynecologists nation-wide to have completed a truly integrated, cross-specialty fellowship within the Department of Urology. She is grateful for mentorship by remarkable gynecologists and urologists, and is thrilled to bring her training to OCUA.
Dr. Mwesigwa tailors treatments to the individual goals of her patients. “I focus on delivering evidence-based care with a personal touch. I invest time to ensure my patients are fully informed before we decide, together, on the appropriate course of action.”
She served as Academic Chief Resident while at Georgetown, and was recognized with eleven teaching awards during her four years on the east coast.
In her personal life, Dr. Mwesigwa is a proud U.S. Air Force spouse to Lt. Colonel “Rhino” Mwesigwa. She treasures spending time with their young daughter, taking peloton classes, growing aroids and passionfruit, embroidering, and pressure cooking.
