“The woman who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The woman who walks alone is likely to find herself in places no one has been before.”
– Albert Einstein
Dr. Sonia Bahlani’s path to becoming a pelvic pain specialist was unconventional. After completing her OB/GYN residency, she saw how women were suffering from pelvic pain in silence or spending years searching for answers without finding relief. She listened to her gut, veered from the traditional course, and pursued a fellowship in the urology department, working with pioneers in pelvic pain. Training in these two areas has given her a unique perspective on women’s health issues.
Through her practice, Dr. Bahlani focuses solely on the medical and procedural treatment of pelvic pain. Her training has allowed her to take a holistic view of ordinary women’s health issues. She takes a compassionate, patient-centric approach and listens to her patients to gain a deep understanding of their challenges. This allows her to develop a comprehensive, personalized treatment plan to address the issue from all angles to improve a patient’s quality of life beyond what they thought possible.
Dr. Bahlani graduated magna cum laude with an undergraduate degree and then received her Doctor of Medicine from the Virginia Commonwealth School of Medicine in Richmond, VA. She completed her residency in OB/GYN at New York Presbyterian / Weill Cornell Medical Center. After her residency, Dr. Bahlani joined the Smith Institute following a fellowship in urology under the mentorship of Dr. Robert Moldwin, a leader and innovator in pelvic pain.
