Dr. Schuster's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Schuster "With an undergraduate degree in business and a new marriage, my wife and I were quickly challenged with fertility issues. This prompted me to reset and I returned to college for an undergraduate degree in chemistry. This started the medical road in Obstetrics and Gynecology. Working in the reproductive endocrine portion of the UAB ObGyn Department, I quickly realized my enjoyment of surgery and continued this avenue of training working with Drs. Wynn Wiser and Rodney Meeks. Their contributions to the development of gynecologic surgery is well documented in the annals of the Society of Gynecologic Surgeons. Urogynecology is the culmination of the pelvic floor surgical skills and the scientific community's foundational research. Now the treatment of pelvic floor disorders is medical and surgical with the gentle blend of both tools in assisting women with the best therapy for their specific problem. "

Patient Comments (2)
in Huntsville, AL |
I looked for a doctor who could address the issues I am having after childbirth (35 years ago), hysterectomy, other pelvic surgeries, and now extreme discomfort. Dr. Schuster's qualifications and specialty areas sounded tailor made for me. I saw him today & was impressed with his knowledge, thoroughness, & kindness. I trust him to do the surgery we discussed. I've already recommended him to my sister.
in Huntsville, Alabama |
I was sure I would need surgery. He offered other alternatives. I could not be happier with him or his Office. I was recommended to him, by almost everyone in my Sunday School Class. He spends a lot of time explaining what he is doing and why. I live about 40 miles from his office. I will never begrudge the time it takes to get to him. Totally worth the Drive. His Nurse, Maria, is also an Angel.
