Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Gomelsky "Dr. Alexander Gomelsky is the only fellowship trained female urologist in the Shreveport/Bossier City area.  He divides his time between LSU Health and Willis-Knighton Health System in Shreveport. Dr. Gomelsky is a Professor of Urology, the Director of Female Urology and Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery, the Residency Program Director and the Interim Chair of Urology at LSU Health Shreveport.  He offers the most current diagnostic techniques, including Da Vinci Robotic-Assisted Surgery as well as minimally invasive treatments for urinary incontinence, and complex pelvic floor reconstruction for pelvic prolapse and neurologic voiding problems.  His greatest sense of accomplishment comes from improving the lifestyles of women who are crippled by these conditions.  He has published numerous articles and textbook chapters on incontinence and pelvic prolapse and pelvic prolapse and has also presented his research at many national meetings.

Dr. Gomelsky was named the 2012 recipient of the Paul Zimskind Award from the Society of Urodynamics, Female Pelvic Medicine and Urogenital Reconstruction (SUFU).  This prestigious award honors his contributions to the clinical treatment of incontinence as well as his mentoring of medical students and residents at LSU Health-Shreveport.

in Ruston, LA |
I've been getting kidney stones for 17 years, and no one has explained more to me about stones and kidneys than Dr. Gomelsky. I get 4 to 5 a year, sometimes requiring surgery so I am pretty picky about who I trust with my care. Dr. Gomelsky and his staff have always tried to accommodate me and do...more
