Accepting new patients

Dr. Gerig is passionate about caring for men and women with lumbopelvic and abdominopelvic pain disorders. Often, patients have difficulty getting an appropriate diagnosis, and may see many other practitioners first. This is because pelvic pain is an emerging new field in medicine, so its fundamentals are not yet taught in medical schools and residencies. Therefore, in addition to offering hope to those who suffer with pain, Dr. Gerig's mission is to promote education of the entire medical community about these disorders....See Less

Learn about Dr. Gerig

Care Philosophy

I consider my role to be that of educator, guidance counselor, and procedural specialist.  It is not necessary to be too rigid about the treatment options a particular patient may choose (other than self-care and participating in the plan, which is an absolute must).  My expectation is that I can explain the nature of the problem, and based on that as well as my education, experience, and ongoing training, recommend the treatment options that I think will likely facilitate the most prompt recovery.  I believe that patients may decline to pursue some options, and that we must work together to find the plan that will address each piece of that person's puzzle.  Persistance is required of both patient and physician, and each must do his or her best.

in Littleton, CO |
After 3 years of intense pain and 10 different doctors, I had nearly lost hope. Finally I was referred to Dr. Nel Gerig, a pelvic pain specialist. On my first appointment, after an extensive examination and a review of my medical history, she diagnosed the problem. Most doctors only deal with their specialty. Dr. Gerig has expertise in ALL areas of pelvic pain. With her help and referral to an amazing physical therapist, my pain is 50% better, and improves every week. Thank you, Dr. Gerig!

I love this woman! And her PA Keri. They treat you with respect. They take their time answering all your concerns. Yes, you wait a long time but they give you the same special care they do everyone else so in the end we are all winners. She is caring and wants to find the root cause of your pain. Just adore her and her PA

This women is incredible! After a long stint of doctors not taking my case seriously, I was referred to Dr. Gerig and she changed my life. She took on my complicated case and has not given up on me. The first time we met, she spent time with me, got to know me & my case. This is an extreme rarity. She spends time with all her patients because she genuinely cares and for that, she gets aces across the board. Dr. Gerig and her team are absolutely incredible and genuinely care. I highly recommend.

Dr. Gerig is a passionate and incredibly knowledgable physician in her field. After exhausting the resources in my state, I travelled from Salt Lake City to see her on more than one occasion. Her treatment plan changed my life. I am now a fully functional individual. If I had the time and money, I would continue to see her on a regular basis. For now, I am extremely grateful and will return in a heartbeat should I need further treatment. Thank you Dr. Gerig and your physical therapists!

I have been seeing Dr. Greig for an unusual chronic pain in the pelvic floor region. Her office has become very organized in the last few years with reminder calls and short wait times. She greets you with a welcome hug. Dr. Gerig is very well trained and will spend all the time necessary with you to resolve your problem without your feeling rushed. You leave with the necessary prescriptions and instructions. Her special caring manner is vital to a patient with chronic pain.

Nel Gerig and her team of super heroes have entirely changed my life! My team works in conjunction with one another- Nel, Keri, my physical therapist, and me, of course. Everyone always knows what is going on with me and we all determine a proper course of action together. All of these people are incredibly knowledgeable. Nel has done a lot of research and knows more about pelvic floor dysfunction than anyone. If you go elsewhere, you just won't get the same level of care. It's that simplc

Dr. Nel Gerig is an extremely caring and compassionate doctor with a wealth of knowledge in urogynocology. I feel Blessed to have her as a doctor. We live aboutn2 hours away,mans if we arrive early, seems we always get taken back to examining room and Dr Gerig comes in the room in just a few minutes, She is never in a hurry, she listens to you and answers all your questions and concerns. I would highly recommend Dr.Gerig to anyone who would need her services. Jeanne L Michael
in Grand Junction, CO |
I went to my primary care physician 2x, then to my pelvic health and wellness gynecologist who did not diagnose me correctly, then to a surgeon who eventually recommended a hemorroidectomy. This was costly and painful and did not fix the problem because it wasn't the problem. My surgeon then referred me to a specialist (colonal-rectal). Within 20 minutes he said he couldn't help me and referred me to Dr. Gerig. Within 20 minutes she diagnosed me, wrote prescriptions and send me to a PT. Cure
