"We're starting with two gynecologists and our local general surgeon, Dr. Alison Smith. By bringing specialists to the community, we'll give local residents the option to stay close to home for these services."

The new gynecologists provide treatment and surgery for disorders of the reproductive and urological systems, including family planning, evaluation and treatment of pelvic pain, symptom control for perimenopause and menopause, urinary and fecal incontinence, abnormal periods and STD treatment.

Joining the clinic are gynecologists Dr. Lindy McLandress and Dr. Lisa Rice.

Smith has moved her practice from West Valley Physicians & Surgeons Clinic to the new West Valley Surgical Specialty Clinic. Smith provides colonoscopies, in addition to surgery for a wide range of needs such as breast cancer, gall bladder, biopsies and appendectomies.
