A fellowship-trained urogynecologist, William E. Porter, MD, is a highly skilled surgeon with many years of experience successfully treating women's health problems. After completing a residency in obstetrics and gynecology, Dr. Porter went on to finish three additional years of fellowship training in the treatment of pelvic floor disorders. This training and his years of experience help him to combine the elements of gynecology, urology and pelvic reconstructive surgery to provide patients with the most accurate diagnoses and comprehensive treatment options available.

Dr. Porter has conducted extensive urogynecologic research and trained physicians in the field. He is often consulted for his input when new medical products and techniques are being developed, and has worked with companies including Boston Scientific, Cook Medical, American Medical Systems and Bard Medical. Dr. Porter trains physicians nationally on how to perform advanced urogynecologic surgical techniques. 

Dr. Porter specializes in minimally invasive surgery and techniques to treat pelvic floor disorders such as urinary incontinence, cystoceles, rectoceles and uterine prolapse. These procedures can be performed vaginally or using the da Vinci Surgical System, resulting in smaller incisions, less post-operative pain and shorter recovery time. Dr. Porter is committed to using the latest and most effective treatments available.
