Mary Grey Maher, MD is board certified in both General Urology and Urogynecology.
Dr. Maher earned her undergraduate degree at Wellesley College, and her medical degree at Yale University. She completed her urology residency at Yale University School of Medicine, and Yale New Haven Hospital in 2004. After which, she spent an intensive year at UCLA, completing a fellowship in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive surgery with one of the founding fathers of Urogynecology, Dr. Shlomo Raz. She returned to her native Connecticut in 2006 to care for male and female patients suffering urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, benign prostate problems (BPH) and kidney stones.
Dr. Maher's clinical interests encompass overactive bladder, urinary incontinence, vaginal prolapse, male voiding dysfunction, incontinence and BPH, genitourinary reconstruction including repairing vesico-vaginal fistula. Additional areas of interest are hematuria, urinary tract infection, and kidney stones. She performs both the male sling and the male artificial urinary sphincter for post prostatectomy incontinence.
Dr. Maher employs a full range of treatment options to meet each patients' needs and wishes. She is patient-care focused and feels that it is critical to offer a range of treatment options: from conservative therapy with pelvic floor physical therapy, the Intone personal physical therapy devices, pessary placement, medication therapy, or an array of minimally invasive surgical procedures when indicated.
She also offers 'native or own tissue' repairs for patients who wish to avoid mesh in their surgical repairs. She has trained extensively in pelvic floor reconstruction and can offer a range of surgical repairs, customized to the patient’s condition and wishes, including robotic surgery. She provides innovative, and high quality care to help patients regain function and improve their quality of life.
