On this week's episode of the Lunch and Learn with Dr. Berry we have Dr. Fenwa Milhouse, a fellowship-trained urologist who specializes in female pelvic medicine and urogenital reconstruction. Born in Nigeria her family immigrated to the US where she would eventually end up at the University of Texas at Houston for medical school. She first received her calling to become a urologist after hearing a lecture about urology given by a black woman urologist.
Despite early apprehension & negative feedback from her advisors she persisted and would go to the University of Chicago for her Urology residency and subsequent fellowship.
She is apart of the Dupage Medical Group (the largest private practice group in Illinois) as their female pelvic floor surgeon which serves two large counties in the Chicago west and south suburbs. She is among the 2% of practicing black urologists nationwide. She is a wife and mother to 3 children. Most importantly she is passionate about telling young people about urology and mentoring underrepresented minorities pursuing urology.
This week, I have Dr. Milhouse on the show to discuss the issue of Urinary Incontinence that affects over 25 million people here in the US and over 200 million people worldwide.
