On this inaugural episode, Dr. Aaron Fritts introduces one of the BackTable OBGYN hosts, Dr. Mark Hoffman, a minimally invasive gynecologic surgeon at the University of Kentucky.

Show Notes

Dr. Hoffman shares the story of his training in minimally invasive surgery and chronic pelvic pain, and discusses the challenges he faced when starting his practice at the University of Kentucky where he treats complex, benign gynecologic concerns. Notably, he started a uterine fibroid embolization program alongside the Division of Vascular and Interventional Radiology. He also discusses caring for an underserved population in rural Kentucky may look like, in addition to factors that influenced his decision to practice in an academic versus community-based setting. Lastly, Dr. Hoffman highlights the role of podcasting and collaboration in medicine, which inspired his involvement in BackTable OBGYN.

Drs. Hoffman and Fritts wrap up the episode by previewing the upcoming episodes for BackTable OBGYN, such as cross-specialty treatment of postpartum hemorrhage and the legal perspective of Roe versus Wade. The hosts encourage listeners to prepare for authentic, open conversations that address women’s health in both realms of obstetrics and gynecology.
